Part 1 are my favourite moment of the decade.. from scoring as a 16 year old at the club of my heart @rscanderlecht and represent my country at 16 @belgianreddevils going to the club i supported as a boy @chelseafc where i learned so much from the players in that dressingroom. @wba thank you for giving a 19 year old kid the time to play in such a great league where i could realise a dream wich is score in the @premierleague. @everton looking back i owe that club so much they gave me a chance and believe at 20 years old and i truly enjoyed my time there. The fans are amazing and it was a pleasure to play for such great club. @manchesterunited such a big club. With such great people and amazing fans. I learned a lot from the coaches and mentally the club prepared me for so much that has to come in my career. People can talk a lot of sh*t but in true honesty i have nothing but love for the people involved over there and they know it .
