Martin Odegaard shared a heartfelt farewell message to Arsenal supports, confirming he won’t be returning to the club next season. The Norwegian wonderkid spent the last part of the 2020-21 season on loan at the Emirates and reports suggested that Arsenal were making a serious effort to bring him back for the new campaign.
The 22-year-old has now shared a farewell message on his Instagram account, thanking the club and fans for his time in North London:
“Arsenal, thank you so much for these 6 months. My time with the Arsenal family will always hold a special place in my heart. I want to thank everyone in and around the club for the way you made me feel like a part of the family since the first day.
“A huge thank you to the boss and his staff for everything I’ve learned during my stay. Thank you also to all my teammates for such a great time on and off the pitch. Will miss you all. Thank you, gunners family. Always in my heart.”
Odegaard is expected to play a bigger role at Real Madrid following the departure of Zinedine Zidane and return of former coach Carlo Ancelotti.
