Lichtsteiner in good spirits on Instagram despite imminent Arsenal release

As the Emirates clock is slowly ticking down for Stephan Lichtsteiner, the Swiss international is enjoying some holiday time with his family.

Arsenal have already officially confirmed that they won’t be renewing the veteran’s contract and he is on the list of players due to be released from the club on 30 June, which is only days away at this point.

Still, this hasn’t stopped Lichtsteiner from having fun and making the most out of his last days as a Gunner. His latest Instagram snap proves as much.

This 35-year-old defender only managed 12 league appearances for Arsenal last season and 23 in total and is leaving the club after only a year spent at the Emirates.

He arrived from Juventus, where he won seven Serie A titles in a row, but was unfortunately never able to find his groove in the Premier League.

Still, that bit of experience and calmness that he brings to the table was very much welcomed in his short stay with the club.
