Unai Emery pens down an emotional goodbye message to everyone associated with Arsenal. He released the message just hours after he was sacked as Arsenal’s club manager.

Emery often got his own share plenty of criticism from fans and pundits. However, writing on the club’s official website, he used his final message to thank those supporters for their passion during his 18 months in charge.

Mentionable quotes from the goodbye message

“It has been an honour to be the Arsenal head coach,” he wrote. “To all the fans, I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for helping me to understand and feel the greatness of Arsenal. 

“To all of you who have supported us from every corner of the globe, all of you who have come to the Emirates, all of you who have waited in the rain and cold just to greet me after a game. I want to tell all of you that I have worked with passion, with commitment and with effort. I would have liked nothing more than to have achieved better results for you.”

He goes on to thank all the employees at Arsenal, from the boardroom down to the matchday volunteers, for their ‘respect, companionship and help’ during his challenging spell in charge of the team.

“It has been a year and a half full of emotions, of great moments and some other more bitter ones, but not a single day has gone by without me stopping to think about how lucky I have been to work for this club with these players and their professional and personal qualities,” Emery added.

“They have always honoured the shirt they wear. They deserve your support.

“I had already experienced a lot in football, but I have enjoyed and learned a lot in England, in the ​Premier League, about respect for professionals and about the purity of football.”

“My best wishes always. COYG.”
