On Sunday, Mesut Ozil’s transfer to Fenerbahce was finally confirmed and he made a long farewell to the fans of Arsenal on social media.

The former Real Madrid man took Twitter to say goodbye to the supporters soon after the news broke.

He wrote: “Dear Gunners, 7-5 years. Nearly 3,000 days. It feels strange to be writing this message after such a long time here in London. Since the moment I arrived, it has felt like home,” the message began.

“I was welcomed with open arms by all the Arsenal staff, my teammates, and most importantly the incredible fans. I will always be grateful for the trust placed in me by Arsene Wenger in September of 2013.”

“I’ve grown up as an adult in north London, a place I can always call home. I’ll never forget that. Being with Arsenal for so long has meant I’ve experienced a big mix of ups and downs. Over 250 games, 44 goals and 71 assists later, it’s time that Arsenal and I finally part ways.”

“Together, we ended the club’s nine-year trophy drought and brought long-needed silverware back to the fans who deserved it. It is difficult for me to put into words the love I feel for this club and the fans.”

“How could I possibly describe eight years of gratitude in a single letter? Whilst I may be no longer playing for the club, I will continue to support them in every game they play. I will be a Gunner for life – no doubt about that. Now more than ever we must all be behind the team. This season is a tough one for every team in the Premier League, and that is why we must all back the current squad and staff no matter the results.”

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.
