Le chemin est long et parsemé d’embûches. Mais on savait qu’à force de persévérance on y arrivera. Mention spéciale au staff technique de LFC, à mes coéquipiers, aux salariés du club sans oublier nos vaillants supporters qui ne ménagent aucun effort à nous soutenir. Être champion ça se fête ! #YNWA# 🦁
