Sami Khedira has finally left Juventus after five and a half years in Turin.
On deadline day, the 2014 World Cup winner completed his move to Hertha Berlin.
After a long and fruitful trip abroad, the German midfielder returned to his home country, capturing some of Europe’s most coveted trophies, including the 2014 Champions League title with Real Madrid.
On Monday, the 33-year-old took the opportunity to salute Bianconeri fans via his Instagram account with a heartfelt message (as translated by Football Italia).
“With all my heart, I’d like to thank you! It was an amazingly beautiful time and, above all, a tremendous success. As a team, in five years, we have won five Serie A cups, three Coppas, and one Super Cup. I’m proud that I was a part of this era.
For me, wearing this award-winning shirt has always been a privilege, and I bring many good moments and memories with me.
The people make this team special, and I’m so glad I met not just teammates, but real friends. Good luck in the future, and for ‘The Twentieth,’ I cross my fingers. It would be a masterpiece, truly! Forever, Juve Forza.
After 145 appearances in all competitions, the former Stuttgart player leaves the Old Lady, which has seen him score 21 goals and provide 13 assists.
I can’t ignore the fact that this season I haven’t played any games so far. However, since the summer, I have been working with the squad and I have always had a great relationship with the club and Andrea Pirlo. I have participated in every training session. I need rhythm, obviously,” the German told Herta’s official website.
“We’ve been in negotiations for a couple of days. I wanted to play football and I wanted the club to succeed.”
