The Portuguese used his Instagram account to say his goodbyes, and below is his message translation:

My time at this enormous club has come to an end. Fifteen years exactly of being a Dragao.

I came here as a boy to the club that I love, which instilled in me so many essential values to make me the man and player I am today.

I managed to achieve something I always dreamed of, being national champion with Porto. I am eternally grateful to Porto and the entire Porto nation which has always welcomed me with open arms for this whole journey.

A special thank you to everyone who accompanied me and worked alongside me these past years, they had a huge part in my growth.

I made great memories and great friendships here which I will cherish forever.

Thank you to the entire Porto nation, Dragao forever!
