Nigeria youth international Isaac Success has penned an emotional goodbye letter to FC Granada ahead of his proposed move to Premier League side, Watford.
The 20-year old striker is expected to join Watford within the next few days, and he has taken time out to pen a heartfelt goodbye letter to Granada.
The letter reads: “Today is a bittersweet day for me, because through this letter, I want to say goodbye to the best hobby that you can have, to my colleagues, all the workers in the club who have both supported me since I arrived in Granada, in addition to this city that has given me everything.
“Two years ago I came to this amazing city, with a dream. I chased that dream since childhood and was playing in my town. From Benin City, it looked so far to play in Europe, to be a star, one of the greats, but thanks to the U17 World Cup in 2013 and I could begin to live it.
“I started in (the) youth, which I have only words of thanks to all my team-mates. Before the end of that season and I was summoned to the first team, and I felt that with my daily work, that dream would be a reality.
“In the following season I was lucky enough to bet on me from the beginning, and I could grow within the Spanish first division, I could play against the best, I could enjoy so much in so little time we do not know how to describe in words these two years in this club that has made me grow and has given me everything I am today. I have to acknowledge all the coaches who bet on my terms over the years, but especially Sandoval and his technical team that gave me enough confidence to be better every day
“Heartfelt thanks to all who have been there, to all who have followed me. If you ever feel I have not given everything that was expected of me, but my intention has always been to give our best and beat me every day.
“Now I begin another professional stage, which would not have been possible without my learning and development in Granada.
“So I leave thanking and saying this is not goodbye, it’s a see you soon, because I hope that life throws my way again in this club that I owe so much.”
