Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has come out to speak about David Luiz’s imminent departure from the club. He recently revealed that he feels complete sadness at the centre-back’s impending exit.
According to him, Luiz has won everything in football, and he has enjoyed working with him for several months in London.
Arteta added that he can only thank the Brazilian and wish him the best in his future endeavours.
His words, “He’s a player who has won everything in football and has earned every right to do so through who he is as a player and as a person.”
“I had the privilege to work with him for 18 months. I really enjoyed it. I think we got on really good. I think we had some great moments together. He’s been really helpful, someone who we really like and appreciate so much.”
“So I say thank you to him and wish him the best of luck in his next chapter because I’m sure knowing David that he will have many more to come as a player and in the future somehow related to the game.”
“We have had very clear talks in the last few months.”
“We already had a big decision to make last year when we had to extend his contract in a very difficult moment during the Covid world and with the pay cuts and everything and we managed to extend that for one more season.”
“He’s given his best. I tried to help him as much as I possibly could. The club as well. And after some conversations we decided that it was the best way to do it now.”
“It’s after a few conversations that we had, David and I. We discussed this situation in different occasions and the other day we made the final decision on that.”
