Nick Blackman talks about his season at Maccabi Tel Aviv, including winning silverware, Europa League football and playing under Jordi Cruyff!
Nick Blackman posted an emotional message on his Facebook after he returned to England.
“Today I returned to England. I really don’t know where do to start , but I will start firstly with talking about the man who made it all possible… Jordi. After not taking his advice for the last 4 years I decided to take it this time & I’m so glad I did! He has been there for me through tears of joy & pain & between him and his staff they have showed incredible loyalty & opened my eyes to a new way of playing the game. I know which ever direction you decide to go in next you will be a success 100% .
“To my team mates we’ve been through a crazy season!! I’ve been given the opportunity to play & score the winning goal in the Europa League group stages & also won the first piece of silverware in my career with you guys by my side 🏆. Through the good and bad times we have stayed together and with this spirit even more success is on the way.
Last but certainly not least ..I want to say thank you to the fans, Who from the first day had me in their hearts and have treated me so well. Keep supporting and pushing the team to the success Maccabi Tel Aviv FC – מועדון הכדורגל מכבי ת”א deserves. I do not know what the immediate future holds but I do know one day I will wear the famous blue & yellow again. Thank you for everything NB11 #yallamaccabi 💛💙”
