Lorenzo told his friends: “Thank you to everyone – here and elsewhere – for all your support over the past five years – we have seen some unbelievable results in Ireland and I have made many friends. I am trying hard not to become emotional! I don’t know what I will do in the future.” (To which Rebecca quickly responded: “I’ll have him back in six months!”)
