Lucas Torreira sends a classy message to the Arsenal fans

Arsenal finally shipped out Lucas Torreira this summer after he fell out of favour at the Emirates.

The Uruguayan joined the Gunners in 2018 after a very fine World Cup campaign with his national team.

He was one of the club’s best players during the first season of Unai Emery’s reign at the club.

However, he fell out of favour in his second season before Emery was even sacked as Arsenal’s manager.

Torreira struggled to earn back a place in the team under Mikel Arteta and the Spaniard was more than happy to allow him to leave this summer.

He was set to move to Italy with Torino before Atletico Madrid made a late swoop for him and he joined the Spanish side instead.

In what looks like a goodbye, he has taken to social media to send a classy message to the Arsenal fans.

The Uruguayan admitted that he enjoyed playing for the Gunners before assuring fans that he will see them again soon.

His Tweet read: “It was an absolute privilege playing for Arsenal these last two seasons! Thanks a lot! We catch up soon! Once a Gunner…always a Gunner!!”

    Below as posted by the official Arsenal IG page, were his exact post and words:

    ・・・
    I would like to thank all the people I met at Arsenal during these two incredible years, all the outstanding staff working on and off the pitch.
    And, of course, I would like to hug all the Arsenal fans for the amazing support they have been showing me since the first day.
    The chant you sang for me will always be in my heart…
    It was an absolute privilege playing for Arsenal these last two seasons!
    Thanks a lot!
    We catch up soon!

    Classy!
    I’m not sure if he’s got some future with us, but really love him and everything he brings with him – the play, attitude and energy.
    I think letting him play further up the field was the start of his problems as he really isn’t that technical enough, but does the job so well for me in the DM role.
    And once injuries got in, fitter players had his spot taken; needed decent game time to get back to his old sef which he arguably didn’t get.

    We wish him the very best in his career.
    “Torreira, oooh, Torreira oooh!”
