The 29-year-old began his career with Brondby back in 2004 before making the move to Anfield just two years later. He since went on to rack up 232 appearances for the Reds, scoring 14 goals.
He and the club’s fans enjoyed a strong relationship over the years, and he even had the letters ‘YNWA’ tattooed on his hand.
However, having been linked with the likes of Barcelona over the summer, he made the surprise decision to rejoin his boyhood club last week, but he took time out to say goodbye to the Liverpool fans who had supported him so vociferously during his stay.
Liverpool has been such a big part of my life and my family’s lives for so long that leaving is extremely difficult.
I’ll start by saying that Liverpool fans constantly keep surprising me. Since the news broke about the transfer, I have received so many positive messages and well-wishing for the future – not just from supporters in Liverpool but across the world.
My family and I have always felt your backing, it is something unique to this football club, this city and our supporters – it’s been a privilege to have represented this club and I’m forever thankful for everything I have learnt during my time here.
When I joined this great club, I came here as a 21 year old boy with a lot to learn. Liverpool has helped me grow up and shape me into the man I am today. I’m proud of who I’ve become and I wouldn’t be the person I am today without my time at Liverpool.
I’ve been honoured to live in this close knit city and my experiences as a Liverpudlian are unforgettable. I’d finally like to wish the club all the best for this season. I’ll be supporting you every step of the way, as will millions of others. You’ll Never Walk Alone.
