The Arsenal defender has also identified the best piece of advice his boss has offered him so far.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Arsenal defender Calum Chambers says manager Arsene Wenger has improved him 'massively' during his time at the club.

The defender joined the Gunners from Southampton at the beginning of the 2014/15 campaign, with Wenger showing faith in him despite his age as he made 36 appearances during his first season at the Emirates.

Chambers has featured at both full-back and centre-back for the north London outfit, displaying his versatility, and says Wenger has helped to take his game to another level.

“He’s improved me massively,” he told arsenal.com.

“Over the past year I think I’ve improved in my game a lot. He goes through little things with me on the pitch and individual stuff. He gives me advice so over the past year my game has improved massively.”

The best advice Wenger has had to offer

Wenger has a history of working with young talent down the years, with his desire to develop youngsters rather than buy established stars something which has epitomised his long reign.

Chambers is part of that long list, with the likes of Hector Bellerin and Francis Coquelin also enjoying regular first-team football this season and last.

The manager is sure to be keen to nurture them as much as possible, and Chambers says the best piece of advice his boss has given him was to relax and enjoy his football.

“I’d probably say the best piece of advice the boss has given me is just to relax and enjoy myself in games,” he added.

“I probably think that’s the best advice he’s given me because it helped me in my game. I can then relax, go onto the pitch and express myself which is useful.”
