EPL: ‘He’s A Natural Leader, Perfect Professional’ – Arteta Speaks On Arsenal’s Next Captain



Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, has hinted that ‘natural leader and perfect professional’ Martin Odegaard could be a candidate to become the club’s new captain.

Arteta stripped Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Arsenal’s captaincy a few days ago following another ‘disciplinary breach’ that cost the Gabonese striker his place in the squad when Arsenal played against Southampton and West Ham United, respectively.

The Spaniard is turning to a ‘leadership group’ that includes former captain Granit Xhaka and Alexandre Lacazette until a new permanent captain is named.

Odegaard, who joined Arsenal on loan from Real Madrid last January before making the move permanent in the summer, has emerged as a possible candidate, already serving as captain of the Norwegian national team.

“He’s a very young player but already has a lot of experience at different clubs and international level,’ Arteta told a press conference on Friday ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League tie with Leeds United on Saturday evening.

“I agree in the last few weeks he’s getting close to his best level and the ceiling for him. I don’t know where it is because of the talent and desire he has and how much he wants to improve.

“We have a tremendous player. He is a natural leader, if you look for a perfect professional, he wouldn’t be very far from that.”
