Bakary Sako thanks Crystal Palace as he bids farewell to club


Bakary Sako has thanked Crystal Palace for their support – with confirmation that his time in SE25 is over.

The attacker re-joined the Eagles in the January window from West Bromwich Albion.

Sako initially joined Palace on a free transfer after his Wolves deal expired in 2015. He scored eight goals in 54 matches for the South Londoners.

Sako said: “All good things come to an end… After four seasons at CPFC, the time has come for me to look for a new challenge in my life.

“I want to thank again, publicly, the club and the people there for all what they did for me during this incredible journey. My team-mates, my coaches, the staff… I hope that I’ve been as good with them that they have been with me.

“Our history hasn’t been easy as I’ve unfortunately suffered many setbacks, but for each and every time I’ve worn our blue and red jersey I did it with pride and happiness. I want to deeply thank you all guys, at the stadium, in the city or all over the world for supporting me and sending me always strength & love. I will always keep you close to my heart.

“I also want to thank West Bromwich Albion for the chance they gave me at a difficult stage of my career. I will remember”.
