Personally a very sad day. I am forever in debt to this man. The person who had faith in me and gave me a platform to progress. Thank you for all the memories and trophies boss.
This man just didn’t give me the opportunity to wear the Arsenal shirt..to discover the premier league.. to learn and improve by his side.. BUT this man changed my life.. i would always be grateful for what he has done for me and my family .. especially when i was going through hard personal moments. Your words mean a lot to me and i wanna take time to remind everyone he has made Arsenal bigger no matter what people are thinking about today.. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you Coach 🙏🏾
To the man who gave me my chance as a 16 year old, and showed unbeliveable faith and commitment towards me. Always a gentleman, like a father through tough times in my career. He always believed in me when most people didn't. Thank you for everything boss! It's down to us no… pic.twitter.com/wTmjTSYwNx

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
Truly saddened to hear the Boss is leaving. A great man who made an everlasting positive impact.The moral support& confidence you gave me, alongside your guidance& support helped me become the man I am today. A shining light on my darkest days. From the bottom of my heart, MERCI.

Arsene Wenger will forever be a special manager to me. He gave me a chance and I will always be grateful to him for that. He has shown faith and support in me – not just as a manager and as a coach, but also as an individual. He will truly be missed. pic.twitter.com/2A9XH9IK1s
