EPL: Fantastic Player, I Like Him – Rio Ferdinand Hails Arsenal Star

Former Manchester United centre-back, Rio Ferdinand, has heaped praises on Arsenal midfielder Martin Odegaard.

Ferdinand described Odegaard as a fantastic player, adding that he likes the Norway international.

Odegaard was named the new Arsenal captain in the summer following the departure of Alexandre Lacazette.

Speaking on his Vibe with Five YouTube channel, Ferdinand said, “I said that the armband could weigh too heavy on him. I said it could, there was a chance that it could.

“Some people, when they get the armband, it changes them. He’s started the season brilliantly. As a player I really like Odegaard, last season he was fantastic.”

He added, “He was a wonderkid from 15 years old and now he’s starting to show why. You either get the armband weighing heavily on you, or it enables you to grow and become better.”

“Three games in it looks like it’s making him a bigger player, a bigger personality and a bigger character.”
