Arsène Wenger… What a man… What a mentor… I remember when I first came in the club, impressed, scared, and not even speaking proper English. He built confidence in me, made me believe in myself and pushed me as far as I possibly could. He’s always been a father figure to me and to so many young players throughout the years. I can’t thank him enough for his commitment at Arsenal. All hail Arsène Wenger! #arsenal #gunners4life#gunnersfamily
