Ozil proved to be a puzzle Emery could not solve during his time at Arsenal, and the German midfielder – who has started just four Premier League games this season – made no mention of Emery in his Twitter post…
Among the players to thank Emery were Alexandre Lacazette and Calum Chambers.
Lacazette said: Not always easy when someone has to leave the club.. But I want to the thank the coach and the staff for everything and wish good luck for the future.
Chambers added: “Thank you and good luck for the future!”
Emery’s dismissal fell a year to the day since he handed youngster Bukayo Saka his Arsenal debut, and the winger said he will “always be grateful”.
