Aaron Ramsey has served Arsenal for 11 years and his time in the Gunners’ jersey will be over this season as the Welshman is set for a move to Italian giants Juventus in the summer.
The 28-year-old was in attendance for Arsenal’s last home match against Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League and spoke to the media after that.
“I’m very emotional. It’s been a hell of a journey. So much has happened in that. When I look back, you can hear in my voice how much it means to me. I’ve spent so many years here a boy at 17 years old and I leave here a man. So much has happened so I’m very grateful for the opportunity here.”
When asked about the new challenge which he would face in the Serie A, Ramsey revealed that he is looking forward to it.
“Obviously, I’m very excited for the new challenge, the new chapter in my life. Today, is all about this, where I grew up, so I just want to take this in.”
When asked what made him tick in Arsenal for so long years, Ramsey replied that it was the love and adulation of the fans.
“There’s been highs and lows but the fans have stuck by me, so I’m very grateful.”
