Ozan Kabak has penned a farewell letter to Liverpool displaying maturity far beyond his years as his loan term ends with the club.
Jürgen Klopp signed Kabak on loan in late January with the option to make it a permanent deal this summer. However, despite impressing many LFC fans with his displays – following a disastrous debut in the defeat at Leicester – Liverpool did not take the option to make Kabak a long-term signing.
As reported on Liverpoolfc.com, Kabak now returns to Schalke 04 where his future remains unclear following the German club’s relegation from the Bundesliga.
The piece states:
The Turkey centre-back will leave the club on July 1 following the expiry of his loan from Schalke 04.
Kabak made 13 appearances for the Reds after joining in February, helping Jürgen Klopp’s side finish third in the Premier League and reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Here is the 21-year-old’s farewell letter to Liverpool fans in full…
Dear Liverpool family,
I would like to thank you for the compassion and support you have shown towards me since the day I arrived. I believe the experience I have gathered during my four-month stay here has been a very important one.
I have learned a lot from my manager Jürgen Klopp and all my teammates and I was proud to be part of this special family. I will always remember my days here at Liverpool with great happiness and the special song which you have kindly gifted me.
We wish Ozan all the best. The Turkey international had already earned himself a song among LFC fans and a place in many of our hearts. We’re sure he has a long and prosperous career to look forward to over the next decade or so.
