“He was the first in training” – Arteta praises Arsenal player


"His attitude was absolutely phenomenal" - Arteta praise Arsenal star

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has lavished praise on midfielder Martin Odegaard. He stated that the Norwegian has a great attitude and works for the team.

The midfielder first arrived at the Emirates on a loan move in January 2021 from Real Madrid to help the Gunners in the second half of the campaign.

Arteta and his coaching staff were thoroughly impressed by the Norwegian and signed him permanently last summer for €35 million.

In his time at Arsenal, he has formed a close bond with manager Arteta. It appears that the boss is ready to entrust Odegaard with the captain’s armband permanently.

In an interview with The Athletic, the Spaniard underlined his player qualities which make him an ideal fit to lead his young side.

Arteta said:

“He thinks about the team before himself. He had a period at the start where he wasn’t playing, he was the first in training

“the last to leave, asking the right questions – why he wasn’t playing, what he had to do

“He was always listening, he was always helping his teammates.”

“His attitude was absolutely phenomenal. That made me think that this guy is putting the team in front of himself and the captain has to do that always.”
