Edu pays tribute to late son
Arsenal chief Edu Gaspar has paid tribute to his footballer son – who has decided to leave 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 now he will quit as his contract expires next month and will face a new challenge elsewhere.
And dad Edu, who also has a daughter named Eduarda, posted a tearful tribute on social media, saying: “Yeh toh hai son! You took your first stint in Europe skillfully.
“Adaptation for the country, adaptation to a new sporting model, language, new teammates, new coaches and new ‘difficulties’.
“With that, you leave bigger than you come and that’s how we face our profession.
“Always grow! And you’ve grown so much in these three years. Congratulations!!! Be proud of it all!”
“Congratulations son!!! Now… fly away!!! I love you!!! We will always be together at every step.”
