Player of the season: second place

Press conference

‘Odegaard is close to the perfect professional'

Odegaard and Martinelli

Martin Odegaard has made a big impact both on and off the field since initially joining us on loan last January.

The Norway international’s leadership qualities have impressed Mikel Arteta, and our manager says his performances on the pitch have been similarly eye-catching.
"He's very, very young but he's already had a lot of experience in different clubs, in international football," the manager said.


Odegaard doubles our lead

"I agree that in the last few weeks he's getting very close to his best level.
"The ceiling for him, I don't know where it is, with the talent that he has, the desire that he has, how much he wants to always improve and get better. We've got a tremendous player there.

"He is a natural leader. If you look for the perfect professional, he wouldn't be very far from that."
