Lukas Podolski signed for Galatasaray last week, and the lack of any kind of farewell statement from him was a bit of a surprise given his interactions with fans online and off.
However, the world has been righted as the German used his Instagram account to say goodbye in his own (quite imitable) way.
“Over the last 3 years I’ve had the pleasure of working with some amazing people at Arsenal, I want to thank everyone from all the staff behind the scenes to the manager & my team mates, who have all helped make London a second home to me.
“To the fans… The best fans in England, who have supported myself and the team no matter what, you will forever hold a special place in my heart and I will forever be a Gunner!
“I am confident that next season the team will be challenging for that league title and I will be watching on as a fan! COYG!”

Some top hashtagging there, you’d expect nothing less. And now he is Aslan, ready to fight a witch in a wardrobe, or something.
