Arsenal fans lament as ex-player scores brace for Werder Bremen [Tweets]

Serge Gnabry, the one that got away for Arsenal fans

In a similar way to how Manchester United fans lamented Paul Pogba’s departure from Old Trafford, many Arsenal fans are ruing Arsene Wenger’s decision to let Serge Gnabry leave last summer.

Gnabry was signed for Arsenal’s academy aged 16, and worked his way up through the ranks to graduate to the first team.

But despite all the excitement around the young German, he only made 10 Premier League appearances for the Gunners, and spent last season out on loan at West Brom, before being sold to Werder Bremen this summer.

Gooners had been encouraged by his showing at the Hawthorns and were hoping Wenger would give him the chance to impress this season, but he was deemed surplus to requirements and allowed to leave.

Scores brace for Werder, reaches 9 Bundi goals

And Wenger probably regrets the decision ever since.

Gnabry scored a hat-trick on his senior German debut earlier in the season, and has hit some real goalscoring form in the Bundesliga.
