Luigi Gaspar joined Arsenal from Corinthians in 2019, following his father Edu to North London. The midfielder began his career with the U16s before progressing to the U18s and even appearing for the u23s in 2021.
But the 18-year-old has moved on, as she confirmed in an Instagram post. Unfortunately, injuries marred the tale of the teenager’s time with Arsenal.
From October to March, the kid was in and out of the lineup, but then suffered a setback and wasn’t engaged in any matches from his half-time substitute on March 12th till now.
“Thank you Arsenal, it’s never easy to say goodbye, a club I’ve watched and admired since the first day of my life, my life started here, I was born a North London Boy,” Luigi Gaspar began.
“I wanted to thank everyone who was with me in these last 3 seasons I spent here, there were beautiful moments but also not so easy moments, sometimes things in football don’t work out the way we imagined, but that’s where you get thick skin to prepare you for any situation.
“I cried, laughed, made friends, and built a family here… Eternally grateful for this club that opened the doors for me here in Europe. I arrived here as a boy, leaving Brazil afraid to face new challenges, and I leave today as a man ready for whatever is to come!
“My decision to leave was not an easy choice, but as I said in football, sometimes things don’t go the way we want, I feel that now is a time to face new challenges, to go to a new home.
“I leave here this letter in thanks to all the players, coaches and staff of the club! Thank you for everything you’ve done for me these years!”
There’s a case to be made that uneven playing time doesn’t help a player recover from an injury, so Gaspar may believe that his departure will help him find that consistency.
He would have had to play for Arsenal’s u23s full-time next season now that he is 18.
From Arsenal’s perspective, the u23 midfield is already very packed, therefore Gaspar should probably go somewhere where he can play consistently.
