Shakhtar Donetsk's newest player, Eduardo Da Silva, has described his departure from Arsenal Football Club as 'sad' and 'emotional'.
'DuDu' left N5 in search of first team football and his confidence after a long and arduous struggle to find his form after returning from that tragic injury suffered at St Andrews in Birmingham in 2008.
The striker says that whilst looking forward to a new challenge he's sad about leaving his 'home' and will always have Arsenal in his heart.
'The past few days have been very emotional for me.' Said Eduardo
'Although I am excited about the challenge ahead with my new club Shakhtar Donetsk, I am so sad to be leaving my home for the past three years - Arsenal Football Club.
'Arsenal is a very special football club and I will miss so many people - my team-mates, all the staff and, of course, the wonderful Arsenal supporters.
'When I first came to England, I could not speak the language and knew nobody, but as soon as I arrived I was made to feel at home and part of this big family.
'I had some very difficult times with my injury, but Arsenal was always there for me - the medical staff, the management, the players and the supporters. Thank you everybody.
'Although I have now left the club, Arsenal will always be in my heart. I will always look for the Arsenal results and of course, I wish Arsene Wenger and the great players at the club well for next season and the future.'
Here's hoping we draw Shakhtar in the Champions League so we can give Eddie the send off he so desperately deserves.
