A few Arsenal players took to Twitter to express their thoughts about Unai Emery’s sacking but it was also telling that quite a few did not, including the club captain.

Hector Bellerin, of course, was the classiest of all in his response. Just another reason why he should be club captain, really…

Mesut Ozil seemed slightly pleased and didn’t mention Emery at all, instead posing with Freddie on the training ground…

Alexandre Lacazette tried to make it a personal message…

But Calum Chambers’ tweet was the equivalent of ‘best wishes’ on a work colleague you hardly know’s communal birthday card…

Emiliano Martinez was the first to tweet and, after Hector, the most sincere…

Sead Kolasinac also tweeted, but said nothing about Emery…

Of course, not every Arsenal player is on Twitter or uses it that often, but of those who do, these tweeted nothing:

  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, club captain
  • Lucas Torreira
  • Bernd Leno
  • Sokratis

Make of that what you will…
