Cyriel Dessers has said he is excited to play in Serie A, one of the top leagues in the world.
Dessers has signed for newly promoted US Cremonese from Genk.
“One of my childhood dreams was to play in a KRC Genk jersey, and I did it “, Dessers started in a farewell message.
“One of my other dreams was to play in a top league and that now seems to work.”
In a video presentation by his new club, Dessers likened himself to a child on Christmas eve, who is in front of the Christmas tree dreaming of all the presents he will unwrap the following morning.
“I have always dreamt of playing in Serie A, one of the top leagues in the world,” said the narrator.
“It’s going to be an exciting challenge, full of obstacles, but hugely stimulating, I can’t wait.
“Cremo, let’s dream together.”
Dessers started the season in Belgium brightly to score two goals for Genk before his departure.
“I’m happy that I can leave this way and that we won the last game,” he said.
And that Genk will still have a place in his heart.
“The fans should stay behind the team as they are doing now because I think something great is possible this season with this team, there is a very good vibe,” he urged.
“I will continue to be the biggest supporter and I will come and visit.”
