Sami Khedira has sent a message to Juventus fans on social media wishing the club ‘good luck’ and the best for the future.
The 2014 Germany World Cup winner joined Herta Berlin after terminating his contract with the Old Lady.
“Every journey has an end. But memories will always remain,” the 33-year-old wrote on Instagram.
The message continues. “Dear Juventini,
“I would like to thank you with all my heart! It was an incredibly beautiful and above all successful time. As a team, we have won five Serie A titles in five years, we won the Coppa three times and the Super Cup once. I am proud to have been part of this era.
“For me, it has always been an honor to wear this award-winning shirt and I carry with me many good moments and memories.
“People make this team special and I am really happy to have met not only teammates but real friends.
“Good luck for the future and I cross my fingers for “The Tenth”. It would really be a masterpiece! Forever, Forza Juve.”
Juventus have also shared a message on their official website to thank Khedira for his time at the Allianz Stadium.
The former Real Madrid midfielder insisted he had no problems with Andrea Pirlo.
“I can’t ignore the fact that I haven’t played any game so far this season. However, I’ve been training with the team since the summer and I’ve always had a great relationship with the club and Andrea Pirlo. I took part to every training session. Obviously, I need rhythm,” the German told Herta’s official website.
“We had been in talks for a few days. I wanted to play football and the club want to be successful.”
Khedira also said Hertha Berlin ‘did everything to get him’ after his return to the German Bundesliga from Juventus.
Khedira arrived in Turin from Real Madrid in 2015 but Andrea Pirlo didn’t register the German to play in Serie A this term.
Khedira eventually moved on transfer deadline day and returned to his homeland, where he started his career with VfB Stuttgart.
The 33-year-old, who had been linked with a move to the Premier League, said he looks forward to start playing in the German capital.
