Japanese defender Yuto Nagatomo bid farewell to Turkish football club Galatasaray on Thursday.

“My heart will be with the Yellow-Reds until the end of my life, thank you for everything,” Nagatomo wrote in Turkish on Twitter.

The 33-year-old burst into tears at his last training session at the club’s facility.

“Yuto Nagatomo paid his farewell to the teammates before his last practice time with the team,” the club said on Twitter.

Joining the team from Italy’s Inter Milan in 2018, Nagatomo produced three goals and seven assists in 65 appearances with Galatasaray.

He also helped the team win two Turkish Super Lig titles, one Turkish Cup, and one TFF Super Cup.
