Arsenal fans have been reminiscing over Nacho Monreal after a fan posted a tweet about the Spaniard.
Should have Arsenal have sold Nacho Monreal?
One fan on Twitter remembered the veteran fullback as he alluded to his consistent performances on the pitch, saying he always guaranteed a seven or above out of 10 every week.
Monreal left the Emirates Stadium in the summer transfer window as he completed a move to Real Sociedad on a two-year deal for a reported £225,000 (via Telegraph).
Following his move back to his home country, reports emerged saying manager Unai Emery lost a battle to keep the player for the north London derby back in August (via The Athletic).
The former Spainish international enjoyed a brilliant time at the north London giants, making 251 appearances in six-and-a-half years. Indeed, his time at the club also proved quite successful, with Monreal winning three FA Cups (via Transfermarkt).
Fans took to Twitter to reminisce over the player’s time at the club.
Here is a selection of tweets from these Gooners:
That City goal at Wembley out of nowhere!

Yet another fine player Emery drove away.

One of our best players in recent years. Consistency! Clean football

I think opinions are clouded to some extent by him being played out of position as a center back. Great as a LB, below average as a CB. Clearly did it for the team which should be appreciated.

Best team player and very good addition

Great servant to the club, personally would have kept him on and sold kolasinac back to Germany if I had the power.
