ABSOLUTELY FLYING’: PUNDIT STUNNED BY £30M ARSENAL ACE WHO HAS ‘COME OUT OF NOWHERE’ TO BE AT HIS TOP FORM THIS SEASON
talkSPORT pundit Jermaine Pennant has praised Martin Odegaard and how brilliant he has been for Arsenal throughout the season.
The Gunners captain has been one of the standout midfielders in the Premier League in the 2022/2023 campaign.
With 6 league goals and 2 assists to his name so far, Odegaard seems to have unlocked new levels for Arsenal. The Norwegian skipper’s silky displays have also been backed up with end product, which has made him the beating heart of this high-flying side.
As the Premier League made a welcome return on Boxing Day, so did the £30 million (Sky Sports) man against West Ham United.
From start to finish, Odegaard was simply the best player on the pitch, as Arsenal got the all-important three points with a 3-1 victory.
The ex-Real Madrid phenom’s passing and footwork was on another level, as he pulled strings around the Hammers’ midfield and defence all games.
Ultimately, the 24-year-old’s showing just summed up why he has been different gravy this campaign.
Reacting to Arsenal’s 3-1 win against West Ham, Jermaine Pennant reserved special praise for the in-form Martin Odegaard.
“Odegaard, he has come out of nowhere. He has come out of the blocks absolutely flying”, he said on talkSPORT.
At the time when Martin Odegaard’s services were secured on a permanent basis, many criticised the signing, as they felt he flattered to deceive during his loan spell.
Ever since then, Odegaard has thrived as Arsenal’s chief creator and has also taken on the pressure of captaincy without breaking a sweat.
Ticking all these boxes whilst also producing consistent goal and assist number this season, the man deserves all the praise in the world from the likes of talkSPORT pundit Jermaine Pennant and other such figures.
