"This season has come to an end with lots of ups and downs and yea we disappointed we couldn’t reach our objective,' he ;posted on Twitter.

"But we are grateful and appreciative of the support of our dear fans throughout the season. Now we go on holidays and come back more energized for what is ahead of us!," he added.

Coffie, who has one cap for the Black Stars of Ghana joined the Spanish side on a two year deal after almost a decade in Italy.
