The results has been disappointing to all of us but nevertheless y’all stayed behind us and that will boost our confidence for next season! pic.twitter.com/juHarIE058
The sentiments were further backed by his latest post on Instagram where he said: “The results has been disappointing to all of us but nevertheless y’all stayed behind us and that will boost our confidence for next season! My first season hasn’t turned out how I imagined it, we have to keep working and keep improving to reach our goals next year.”
The Dutchman was Barcelona’s second top scorer this season and although the second half of the season was not as auspicious as the first, it’s not due to his performances.
