Eddie Nketiah gives heaps of praise to his captain Martin Odegaard


Eddie Nketiah took a chance to applaud his teammate and captain Martin Odegaard. This is after Arsenal’s opening win against Nottingham Forest last weekend.

Nketiah was speaking to Norway’s Viaplay Fotball via X. He praised a lot about Odegaard both on the pitch and off it.

Nketiah shared that he sets a great example. This is with every aspect of his game. And it is also his conduct as a person.

What Eddie Nketiah had to say about Odegaard

Nketiah says:

He’s amazing. Just to play with, I enjoy playing with him so much.

He is such a creative player. I like to make runs in behind and he always looks for me.

Off the field as well he’s such a good guy, really good disciplined player, always in on time and working hard.

And his experience as well, and just how he is with the boys as well. We are delighted to have such a good player as our captain.”

Glowing praise indeed from Nketiah for Odegaard. He looks like he may have a slightly different role on the pitch. That is ofcourse for Arsenal this season.

Whilst he will still get in plenty of advanced areas. It seems he will provide a lot more defensive structure with his positioning this season for the gunners.

With so many players such as Nketiah and Martin Odegaard playing excellently at Arsenal, it won’t exactly be a headache for Arteta.

Arsenal’s next league fixture comes away to Crystal Palace next Monday. The side will be hoping to continue their positive start.

Arteta’s side started last season with incredible pace. He will have a tough task to match that in these early weeks.
