David Luiz has issued a heartfelt apology to Unai Emery after Arsenal sacked their manager on Friday. The Brazil international was signed by Emery on the final day of the summer transfer window in a £7million deal from Chelsea.
Luiz had worked under the Spaniard briefly at PSG and was recruited in an attempt to add experience and stability to an infamously porous defence.
The Brazilian – who turned out to be the final signing during Emery’s reign – took to social media to shoulder some of the blame and also sent a message to the outgoing coach.
“Sad day for everybody, especially because we let u down Boss, sorry!!” he tweeted. “Thank you and the amazing staff for everything !!
“You are a hard worker, passionate for football and a big example always doesn’t matter the results! Good luck for the future!
