Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi has told ESPN FC that the impending departure of manager Arsene Wenger is “a bit depressing and a bit sad for me.”
Wenger is preparing to leave the Gunners after 21 years and has said he will take at least a month off after the season to reflect on his future.
And Iwobi said the players, chasing a place in the Europa League final when they travel to Atletico Madrid later this week, wanted to give their long-serving manager the best possible farewell.
“It’s a bit depressing and a bit sad for me — he has done a lot for me in a short time in my career,” he said of Wenger’s departure.
“We’re going to try and give him the right send-off he deserves and end the season on a high and do our best for him.”
But Iwobi added that he was looking forward to working with whoever the next Gunners manager turned out to be.
“It’s exciting times — we’ll have to wait until after the World Cup to actually meet him,” he added.
“So it’s exciting, but it’s also sad times that Wenger is going.”
