Cameroonian full back Fai Ngoran Suiru Collins, has penned a heart touching message to the standard liege family, as he prepares to start his new adventure with Saudi Arabian club Al-Tai FC.
Fai was one of Cameroon’s brightest stars during the just ended Africa Nations Cup on home soil, as his three assists helped the indomitable lions finished third in the competition.
Shortly after Cameroon defeated Gambia two nil in the quarter final, Al-Tai FC announced that they have completed the signing of the Cameroon right back.
The former FC Bamenda man had not made an official Statement until this Friday, when he took to his Social media handles, to thank the Standard leige family for the beautiful moments spend with them.
“It has been an honor to play for this club. Since the first day I got here to me it felt like a dream but the first time I got to the field, I realized it was home,” Fai wrote.
“To all my teammates through out my time in this club I want to thank and appreciate you for our time together the good bad difficult sad moments they made me grow as a man and footballer. To the staff, team manager, coaches, physical trainers, physiotherapists, cooks, gardeners and everyone working here, thank you very much for making me confortable on and off the field. You contributed immensely to my career path and I am very grateful. My wish was to say goodbye in person, but the circumstances were beyond my control.”
The 29_year_old also had some good words for the reds fans.
“I don’t know the words to use to describe how grateful and thankful I am. It’s been a very complicated ride since the first day. The only thing that never changed is your encouragement and support. I understand why standard is the best club in Belgium. It’s not only about football but everything. I am sad to leave but if I learned anything from my time here, is to always play with your heart, fight for the family, accept changes and challenges. It’s time for a new one, I am ready to face it I know for sure I have a home with you here in Liege. My Family and I says thank you. Forever a red.
Fai Collins had been a regular figure in the ranks of Standard leige since he joined the club from Dinamo Bucharest in 2016. He has made 162 appearances for the club, scoring four goals and providing 22 assists, and won the Belgian cup with the club twice (2016 and 2018).
He now moves to Al_Tai FC, currently ranked 13 out of the 16 teams taking part in the Saudi Professional League.
