‘A Gunner for life’ – Mesut Ozil pens heartfelt farewell message to Arsenal fans as Fenerbahce switch confirmed

‘A Gunner for life’ – Mesut Ozil pens heartfelt farewell message to Arsenal fans as Fenerbahce switch confirmed

Fener bound

The major talking point surrounding ongoings at the Emirates over the last couple of weeks has of course come in the form of Mesut Ozil’s future.

German midfielder Ozil, having not lined out for Arsenal on a single occasion since last March, evidently came to the conclusion early this month that his time in the colours of the Gunners was up.

In turn, as confirmed last Saturday, the 32-year-old agreed to a contract termination in north London, 6 months prior to his scheduled departure date:

This was swiftly followed, meanwhile, by Ozil all-but confirming his next destination, via a series of social media posts.

The one-time Real Madrid standout revealed his intention to link up with Turkish giants Fenerbahce, who beat out competition from MLS outfit DC United to convince him of their project:

Ozil bids farewell

As such, all that had since remained was for the new chapter of Ozil’s career to be made 100% official.

And, this afternoon, such confirmation has been forthcoming.

Arsenal and Fenerbahce have released respective statements, the first announcing their long-time midfielder’s exit, and the 2nd his subsequent capture:

And, as outlined above, on the back of his Emirates departure finally being announced, Ozil himself has since bid his ex-employers, and their fans, a touching farewell.

In a lengthy message posted on his official Twitter account, the German revealed his heartfelt gratitude to all who supported him throughout his time in north London, whilst assuring that he will be ‘a Gunner for life’:
