Former England defender Rio Ferdinand praised Martin Odegaard as the best player of the season.
Spanish sports newspaper ‘Marca’ reported Ferdinand’s remarks on the 28th (Korean time) in a podcast. Ferdinand gave high praise to Odegaard, commenting that if he were to leave Arsenal, Barcelona would be his destination.
Odegaard became Arsenal’s captain this season. And he’s doing great, scoring 8 goals and 6 assists in 24 appearances. Considering he is a midfielder, he is pulling out quite a lot of attacking points. He is also very influential in the team as a whole in midfield.
Ferdinand said: “If Arsenal win and Haalan doesn’t break the record for most goals, I think Odegaard will be the most likely player of the year.” It will be a worthy team,” he acknowledged Odegor’s performance.
With Oedegor’s performance, Arsenal is also marching high. Until the 19th round around the halfway point, they are running at the lead with close to perfect results of 16 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss. Challenge to win the league for the first time in 19 years. 토토사이트
He is now regarded as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League. Nevertheless, he is still a 24-year-old player whose future is as promising as the present. Ferdinand applauded: “Odegaard is Mozart. He can roll the ball between people’s legs and at his best he looks like Mesut Ozil reincarnated. He looks comfortable in his current job and is developing well as Arsenal captain.” .
Odegor’s talent was known early on. He holds the record for the youngest player to appear in Norwegian history, making his professional debut in August 2014 at the age of 15 years and 253 days. He also holds the record for the club’s youngest ever appearance at Real Madrid, as he started playing at the age of 16 years and 157 days.
However, it took him a little longer to establish himself at the pro level. He lived on loan to Heerenveen, Vitesse, Real Sociedad and Arsenal, and in August 2021, he made a new turning point when he completely transferred to Arsenal.
