Gilberto Silva still missing Arsenal

Panathinaikos midfielder Gilberto Silva admits he misses former club Arsenal.

The Brazil international left the Gunners last year for Greece.

"My time at Arsenal was great; I can say it was fantastic," Gilberto told Arsenal TV Online.

"I have made so many friends at the Club I would describe it as a family for me. I am at Panathinaikos now but a part of me is still at Arsenal. It is a special club and there are so many special people.

"The players who have had the opportunity to play for Arsenal experience this atmosphere of a family club.

"Once they leave they always miss it and I'm sure it's like this for Arsène Wenger as well, it's why he's here doing this great job for a long time.

"I'm sure one day when he leaves the Club he will leave a great legacy for the Club."
