Here is Jeje's full post:
I would firstly like to thank each and every one of you for the outstanding support you give us all at Chennaiyin FC. This is the club that gave me my first steps into the Indian Super League and it is because of this club that I am who I am today.
I will never forget the support Vita Dani and Abhishek Bachchan have given us through all the ups and downs during our 6 seasons. It was a great feeling to win the trophy twice with the team.
A big thank you to every manager I played under and each and every player I played alongside.
I did wish I could play another match for Chennaiyin FC as I missed the last season but it is not to be.
The Supermachans and BStand Blues are the lifeblood of this team and I hope we can meet once again.
Thank you all it was an honour!
Jeje leaves but he lives on, unforgettable, unique, immortal, irreplaceable. He was and always will be considered special and for the price of nothing.
