Arsenal was home to Emiliano Martinez since 2010 and now the goalkeeper is set to join Aston Villa in a £ 20 m deal.

The Argentine international farewelled the Gunners via an emotional video ahead of his confirmed move to fellow Premier League club Aston Villa.

In the absence of injured starter Bernd Leno, Martinez led Arsenal to FA Cup and Community Shield glory.

Saying goodbye to Arsenal in an Instagram video on Tuesday, the 28-year-old said: “Thank you Arsenal. For me, I could not be happier to leave through the front door with the Arsenal fanbase supporting me and the club supporting me.”

“I had 11 years at the club, and even if it was a hard road for me, and I suffered through my time at Arsenal, today I am happy and I tried to show young goalies how work pays off.”

“When you work hard, you are not going to be happy the whole time, you are going to have frustration, bad times in life.”

“They all understood at Arsenal and they support me for my decision. The Arsenal fanbase was always there for me, I felt their love.”

“Even when Bernd got injured this season, I received loads of messages like ‘we trust in you’, ‘you are our goalie’. That made me confident, made me win games and made me the keeper I am today.”

“They understood my story and they love the way I worked in the club. I am so glad to be part of the Arsenal family for 11 years.”

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
