Arsenal legend, Martin Keown, has questioned the club’s decision to sign Martin Odegaard on a permanent deal from Real Madrid.

 

 

Odegaard returned to Real Madrid at the end of last season following a six-month loan deal at Emirates, hoping to finally establish himself as a first-team player under manager Carlo Ancelotti.

 

The Norway international, however, failed to convince Ancelotti he was worthy of a place in his squad and eventually accepted the opportunity to return to Arsenal, who announced his return on Friday ahead of their Premier League clash with Chelsea on Sunday.

 

Speaking on the development, Keown told talkSPORT: “Odegaard came in after Boxing Day. Yes, the results improved largely. He played 16 times, nine starts, five [substitute appearances], one goal two assists.

 

 

“I think Smith Rowe is a better player in that position. But if the manager feels that Odegaard can bring something extra to the group then time will tell again.

 

“I don’t think that he’s a world-class player but I do think he’s a promising player.

 

“The other signings, it’s still too early to say. Lokonga in midfield played OK the other night.”

  2. Just as Keown has said, time will tell if he’s much more better than Rowe Smith on the position he is being ask to marshal this term. Arteta See’s something in him, which Accellotti doesn’t see or fit into his Real Madrid team.

    I hate ever registering
    When I was about entry they told me that when I read a post I will be giving #50
    They told me I will be making 20 to 30 k weekly
    But now I can not even make in three months

  5. It is a good move as long as they are convinced that the person in question will deliver so I’m not giving me a permanent assignment all the best
