Overwhelmed by emotions after ending his trophy-laden eight-year stint at Juventus, Juan Cuadrado has shared his feelings. The Colombian veteran has taken to social media to send a farewell message to the Bianconeri faithful.
Despite playing a significant role in Massimiliano Allegri’s set-up over the years, Cuadrado won’t be part of the Juventus squad next season. Perhaps surprisingly, the record-time Serie A champions allowed the 35-year-old’s contract to expire. As such, their long-term association halted today.
As one of the club’s most loyal servants, Cuadrado has refused to leave without saying goodbye. The right wing-back took to his Instagram profile to bid an emotional farewell to the Juventus fanbase.
“History of great love. That is what today closes for me after 8 seasons with the Juventus jersey,” Cuadrado wrote. “We won and celebrated together, united to overcome difficult moments too. Always and only to defend this legendary Bianconeri jersey.
“For all these special moments, I want to thank the fans and the club, a big family who never let me be without affection and respect.
“And now, after 314 games and 11 trophies lifted to the sky glorifying and honoring God, the moment has come to salute you, even if it will never be a goodbye to the Bianconeri.
“Thank you Juventus, it was great! To the end!“
Cuadrado joined Juventus on loan from Chelsea in the summer of 2015 before signing a permanent contract in 2017 for a fee of €26.8 million. Eight years on, he leaves Turin as a club legend after lifting 11 major titles with the Allianz Stadium outfit.
