Sokratis Departs Club As Gunners Continue Clearout
Arsenal’s clearout continues of their current squad, with Sokratis the latest player culled from our numbers.The Greek defender, who hasn’t featured this season and also has been omitted from both Premier League and Europa League squads, worked with the club to terminate his contract early, leaving Sokratis a free agent with immediate effect.The first thing Sokratis did was post on his social media accounts, thanking the fans and the club for his time at Arsenal.Mikel Arteta has had plenty of options in defence at his disposal, with Calum Chambers, Pablo Mari, Gabriel, David Luiz, Rob Holding and Shkodran Mustafi all featuring this season. It left new boy William Saliba and Sokratis surplus to requirements and sure enough, both are now out of the squad, but in very different circumstances.Can Sokratis be judged as a flop? The Greek defender joined from BVB with a reputation for old-school defending and physicality and that was what we needed at the time of his arrival. But a move in culture and footballing philosophy saw Sokratis slowly fall out of favour as his skill with his foot on the ball did not match his ability to win the ball.But every performance really did carry the weight of his efforts. He gave everything for the cause when he was on the pitch and never let us down.Advert InsertedSokratis made 44 appearances in just over two years, scoring three goals. His highlight of his Gunners stay will probably be the goal he scored against Manchester United in a notable 2-0 win at the start of 2020.We’ll be left with the memory of a defender who celebrated a winning tackle as much as a goal and a player who valued effort above all. He was professional to a fault.Thanks Papa, good luck for the next step of your journey.
