USMNT goalkeeper Matt Turner has already expressed his commitment to his new club Arsenal during his farewell match for the New England Revolution in Major League Soccer. Turner proved his loyalty towards the Gunners as he rejected one fan who was wearing a Tottenham shirt. 

Turner then moved ahead and proceeded to sign a New England gear jersey. The 27-year-old was on the bench for the final game in the MLS where the Revs registered a 2-1 victory over Minnesota on Sunday. Turner agreed to join the North London outfit in February 2022. 

I’m sad because I’m going to miss everybody: Turner

Addressing his departure from the USA, Turner said, “There’s definitely a lot of emotion. I’m still learning how to cope with all that. On top of that, my wife’s in England nine months pregnant. So, I got a lot of stuff going on. So, maybe I wouldn’t have put my best performance out there tonight, and then I’m kicking myself because I left on a bad note.”

“So again, like I said before, I think you know the way everything should have gone and emotionally, I’m happy because of the way everybody made me feel tonight. I’m sad because I’m going to miss everybody, as well. But there’s just so many other ones in between that it’s hard to really articulate,” Turner continued. 

It’ll be interesting to see how he does: Arena

The 27-year-old’s coach Bruce Arena also wished him the best of luck in the Premier League. He said, “It’ll be interesting to see how he does at the next level. Not only the national team but obviously, in the Premiership. It’ll be the next challenge in his life, and he’s not backed away from any challenges to date so it’ll be interesting to see how he does.”
