Obafemi Thanks Teammates, Coaches As He Waves Seattle Sounders FC Bye

International football star, Obafemi Martins has officially
declared he has left Seattle Sounders FC and has now moved on to join Shanghai
Greenland Shenhua Football Club, a Chinese club. In an emotional note on one of
his social media pages, the footballer wrote;
Thank you Seattle. Thank you for everything. Thank you for
the memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you for the endless love and
support, during good times and bad. Thank you to my teammates and coaches for
always believing in me.
Something I feel strongly about is challenging myself. When
I came to Seattle, it was for the challenge. The challenge of playing in an
unknown environment. I can wholeheartedly say that I seized the opportunity in
Seattle and gave everything I had for the club. Continue…

For me it’s now time for a new challenge. After significant
reflection, I have decided to join Shanghai Greenland Shenhua FC of the CSL.
When I left Nigeria for Italy at age fifteen with the hopes of a pro career, I
put everything on the line. I was immersed in an unknown culture. It may be
difficult to understand or relate to, but I’ve grown to appreciate the feeling
I get when entering environments where I’m not a proven footballer.
Rave on,
Oba Martins
We wish him all the best and also hopes he retires
gracefully one day.
