Cult hero finally bids farewell to Arsenal

DiabyA fair few Gunners fans here in the Transfer Tavern today are looking a little down and glum, and that’s not just because they’ve had some rotten luck at the Fruity.

Abou Diaby, who despite his injury plagued career at Arsenal football club has established himself as a real fan favourite and when rarely fit, would put in performances that excited all of the Emirates faithful.

This midfield man is the catalyst behind some disappointment among Arsenal fans today though.  The Daily Star confirmed yesterday that the French-man’s 10-year stint at the North London club has come to an end, finally released by the club who have been so loyal to him.

It has now be revealed by the Daily Mail that the 29-yeard is making a return to his home country, with Ligue 1 club Marseille set to be his next destination in a frustrating career.

Arsenal fans what do you make of this departure? Are you sad to see Abou Diaby go? What was his best moment at Arsenal? Let us know your thoughts below!
