Former Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry scores stunning volley for Werder Bremen

Arsene Wenger’s decision to let Serge Gnabry leave the Emirates Stadium was met with a fierce response.

The 21-year-old looked for all the world like a potential superstar. His six goals for Germany at the Olympic Games in 2016 simply reaffirmed his status as one of football’s brightest talents.

So to see him sign for Werder Bremen in the summer was rather surprising. It’s a decision that could very well come back to hurt Wenger in a similar way that Jose Mourinho’s decision to let Kevin De Bruyne sign for Wolfsburg ended up hurting Chelsea.

Gnabry showed Wenger just what he’s missing with a fine goal in Bremen’s 4-1 defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday.

It was only a consolation goal - Bremen were already four goals behind when Gnabry scored in the 73rd minute - but we’re still surprised that the young winger was able to refrain from celebrating.

He latched onto Aron Johnnsson’s chip and, without letting the ball bounce, fired home from the edge of the area. Wenger must be hurting inside.

What a hit

Arsenal fans react

Gnabry’s goal was just another opportunity for Arsenal fans to vent their frustration at the manager’s strange decision to let him leave.

"Perfect" player

Bremen only paid Arsenal £5 million for Gnabry. And the Bundesliga club are delighted to have him, coach Viktor Skripnik calling the ex-Arsenal player a “perfect” player.

“I am delighted he's with us," Skripnik said of Gnabry, per ESPN FC.

"I hope what he showed [in the 2-1 loss to Augsburg] already was the worst he can play. I think he's capable of fulfilling everything that we expect from him. He already is perfect."
