Bayern Munich star sends message to Arsenal fans at Spanish GP

Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry played for Arsenal during a four-year stint from 2012-2016, failing to make much of an impact.

During a live interview from the Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix, Serge Gnabry, the former Arsenal player turned Bayern Munich star, revealed his continued support for his former club despite his illustrious career away from the Gunners. 

Gnabry’s journey in football has been one of the most discussed stories in recent years, particularly regarding players developed through Arsenal’s academy.

After a loan spell at West Bromwich Albion failed to yield significant results, Gnabry struggled to make a lasting impact at Arsenal before eventually moving to Werder Bremen. 

However, it was his subsequent transfer to Bayern Munich that propelled his career to new heights, amassing numerous titles and earning accolades such as the player of the season in Munich.

When asked about his support for Arsenal this season, Gnabry expressed his allegiance, saying, “Yes, of course. There’s the saying ‘once a Gunner, always a Gunner,’ so of course, I was rooting for them and hoping. I think they had a very good season.” 

Despite rumors linking him with a return to Arsenal, which persisted until last summer, Gnabry remained committed to Bayern Munich.

It is evident that Gnabry still holds a special connection with Arsenal, even though he did not achieve great success during his time at the club.
