‘You are number one’: Kaka, Fabregas and Real Madrid legend stunned by the news about Arsenal man yesterday

‘You are number one’: Kaka, Fabregas and Real Madrid legend stunned by the news about Arsenal man yesterday

Arsenal formally promoted Edu Gaspar yesterday, making him the club’s first sporting director.

The 44-year-old played with Arsenal for three and a half years, winning two Premier League titles.

He returned to the club as technical director in 2019, and after some outstanding work in North London, he has been promoted.

Since Edu’s appointment as technical director three years ago, Arsenal has come a long way. Back in 2019, the club was in disarray, and the Brazilian was forced to fire Unai Emery after only four months on the job.

Since then, Edu and Mikel Arteta have implored Gunners fans to trust the process, and they are finally delivering.

In the last three transfer windows, Edu has radically transformed this Arsenal team. He has made several spectacular signings and has also moved on a number of players.

The Gunners currently lead the Premier League table, five points ahead of defending champions Manchester City.

Mikel Arteta is being lauded as the season’s best manager, and rightly so, but Edu deserves a lot of credit for all of his efforts as well.

Following the announcement yesterday, Edu took to Instagram to express his gratitude to all those who have supported him over the years. Several well-known footballers, both past and present, congratulated him on his promotion.

Cesc Fabregas wrote, “Grande amigo,” while Dutch legend Patrick Kluivert said: “Congrats my brother! Well deserved!”

Real Madrid legend Fernando Morientes wrote: “Well deserved. You are number one!”

Brazil icon Kaka commented, “Congratulations Eduardoooooo! You deserve it a lot,” while Luisao wrote: “Reference and an amazing legacy!! Congratulations my friend!”  

Arsenal fans are overjoyed with Edu’s performance and will be hoping for more of the same as the Gunners attempt to establish a title challenge in the second half of the season.
