It wasnt an easy decision (to leave). I enjoyed my time there. Especially the last couple of years. I felt like they warmed to me,he told the Athletic.

There was a lot of talks behind closed doors there are things that Im not allowed to say but I feel like it was a decision from the club and from me that the best solution was to leave. I hope they do well, I have a lot of respect for them and left on good terms.
