Odegaard, proud of the change

The Norwegian is pleased with the reception he has received at Arsenal and avoids talking about his return to the white club.


It took him four games to get into Arteta's starting XI, but the feelings expressed by Martin Odegaard about his arrival at Arsenal are positive for the Norwegian. The 22-year-old, on loan from Real Madrid, made his debut in the Gunner jersey in the London team's victory (4-2) against Leeds after the match, he spoke to his country's television to comment on how his first weeks are being at Arsenal.

"I think I'm adjusting well. The way I was welcomed into the team and how my teammates treated me, the coach and everyone at the club helped me from the first minute. I feel very comfortable and part of the team, has It has been very easy to come to this team. I am simply proud to be here and to be part of this team, "said Odegaard in statements to the Norwegian channel TV2 collected by the Metro newspaper.

About his future, Odegaard said: "You never know what's going to happen. For now I'm focused on doing my best this season and helping the team as much as possible."

Nothing to do with the distance he showed towards Real Madrid in a recent one in the official Arsenal media, in which he made no allusions to the white club except for his choice of Cristiano Ronaldo, along with Messi, as the best players in the world.

Arteta praises him publicly

If Odegaard is happy with the reception he has had at Arsenal, his coach is also delighted with his game. Arteta called his debut in the start against Leeds as "great" and appreciated the difficulty of showing that performance after the period of inactivity with which he arrived in London: "Considering that he has not played much football in three months, he was great. Running the way he did, the way he looked comfortable and creative with the ball, and the personality that he showed, they were great. "

Arsenal will play this coming Thursday 18 (21:00) the first leg of the round of 32 of the Europa League against Benfica at the Olympic Stadium in Rome, with the Lisbon team acting as a home team on a neutral field.
