    Per Mertesacker determined to give 100% in last season as a professional player

    Per Mertesacker has revealed that he will not do anything special this season to commemorate his final year in competitive football. The defender will retire after the end of the campaign with Arsenal confirming that from the 2018/19 season, the German will lead the club's academy. The former Germany international had played just 37 minutes of football in over a year before his final appearance, but showed no signs of rust as he put in one of his best performances for Arsenal.
