Flamini IS leaving Arsenal!
After much debate over the past few weeks since the closure of the domestic season, it was questioned whether Arsenal’s Mathieu Flamini would be leaving the club. Now after weeks of waiting for a decision, Arsenal fans can finally rest easy knowing Flamini will be leaving the club after all!
In comparison to Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky, who have also been released from the club, Flamini received nothing of the same sort of send off. It led many to believe that Wenger was keeping the French midfielder on for at least another season. This of course threw up quite a debate amongst fans of the club.
The decision was finally reported on the official Premier League site rather than on Arsenal.com, where all three players are still officially listed.
Whilst Flamini may have been a disaster on the pitch at times and seem to pick up more bookings than you can keep count of, he was certainly was a loyal servant to the club. He showed commitment, passion and ambition to achieve success and was certainly not afraid to speak out to get his side fired up, a quality we really lack in the current Arsenal side.
One major concern that fans will have, which isn’t actually quite so pressing, is the fact that Ozil has now lost his best friend at the club. So you better pull your finger out Wenger and bring in some big names in order to keep Ozil and Co happy!
Love him or hate him, you just know that it won’t be the same without MatFlam around the Emirates!
