“I’ve met so many great people here, made great friends and Arsene bringing me to the club and giving me that opportunity was pretty special.
“To last this long, at a club like this, is something in itself. That doesn’t happen very often anymore, that’s why it’s so emotional and why the bond is so strong.
“I just want to say thank you very much for all the fans’ support over the years, there has been a few lows but lots of highs and the bond has been so strong because I have been here for such a long time and they have been with me through thick and thin, watching me go from a boy to man.”
