The midfielder from Gabon has received Serbian citizenship
Guelor Kanga, a member of the Gabonese national team and a Red Star (Crvena Zvezda) football player, has officially become a citizen of Serbia, with a new passport and ID card with the coat of arms of the Republic of Serbia handed to him.
On the occasion of obtaining our citizenship, Kanga said that he was happy to have officially become a Serbian citizen.
"It took a while, I was here, then I left, then I came back. I am very pleased to have received the passport, because when you have a European passport it changes a lot of things. I am here to thank the people who fought for me and enabled me to get a Serbian passport. I feel good here, ever since I arrived, I don't feel like a stranger, people love me. This is my second city. We'll see what happens, if I can spend my whole life here. I feel good here, this is my country and now I have an obligation to do a lot of things."
Kanga stressed that negotiations are underway and that he would not mind ending his career playing for Red Star.
"That is the plan, we will talk a little about it with the president, the story is already underway. Why not, I would like to end my career here. I feel good here, this is my home. I could end my career here, why not."
Finally, he spoke in Serbian.
"Thank you very much, Zvezda, thank you very much," Kanga said.
