Edu pays tribute to departing son
Arsenal chief Edu Gaspar has paid tribute to his footballer son – who has decided to QUIT the Emirates this summer.
Luigi Gaspar, 18, signed for Arsenal from Corinthians in 2019 after his father became the club’s new technical director.
But he will now leave as his contract runs out next month to take on a new challenge elsewhere.
And dad Edu, who also has a daughter called Eduarda, posted a tearful tribute on social media, saying: “That’s it son! Your first stint in Europe you took on expertly.
“Adaptation to the country, adaptation to a new game model, language, new teammates, new coaches and new ‘difficulties’.
“With that, you leave bigger than you arrived and that is how we have to face our profession.
“Always grow! And you’ve grown a lot in these three years. Congratulations!!! Be proud of it all!
“Congratulations son!!! Now… fly!!! I love you !!! We will always be together at every step.”
