Pep Guardiola has suggested that Arsenal have made an excellent signing by bringing in Martin Odegaard to Football London.
Arsenal signed Odegaard from Real Madrid in January, and he is yet to really showcase his talents at the Emirates Stadium.
The youngster has only been handed a few opportunities so far, and still seems to be adjusting to the league.
But Guardiola has suggested that Odegaard has the talents to make a big impact at Arsenal.
“He’s a big talent. He was a brilliant Real Madrid player and when you play for Real Madrid you’re always good,” he said.
Odegaard actually started for Arsenal against Guardiola’s City side yesterday, but he was unable to hurt them too much in an attacking sense.
The Norwegian showed a few nice touches, but rarely threatened to thread a pass through City’s backline.
In the end Arsenal fell to a 1-0 defeat, in a game where they rarely threatened to score, after falling behind early on.
