The end comes for every player at some point and we knew in advance that this would be Aaron Ramsey’s last season as a Gunner, however, it was hoped his last game for us would have been in the Europa League final and not in an away game in Italy.
Ramsey played 369 Games for us, scoring 64 goals, making 65 assists, picking up three trophies and being named the Arsenal player of the season in 2013/14 & 2017/18.
Fans and pundits have been reacting ever since the news broke that the Welsh Wizard had played his last game for us and here are just a few from social media.

It’s fitting that in Ramsey’s last season at Arsenal he scored against Tottenham whilst celebrating by reminding everybody that Wembley is his pitch. Aaron Ramsey is a red. Farewell legend. All the best in Turin!

Aaron Ramsey has been told he won't play again this campaign.
His injury is a season-ending one, and has therefore played his last game for Arsenal.

From a personal point of view, my overriding memory of Ramsey was his awesome 2013/14 season which culminated in him scoring the winner in the FA Cup final against Hull City in extra time ending a nine-year drought for silverware.
That season was special for me, he was on fire scoring goals at critical points and he showed that he was indeed a big game player.
I accept he was injured a lot and to be frank, sometimes inconsistent, but I will miss him and I thank him for the memories and wish him the best of luck in his new venture in Italy with Juventus.
