Jack Wilshere has raved about Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney on talkSPORT.
The former Arsenal midfielder has said that everyone at the Gunners raves about the Scotland international left-back.
The 29-year-old, who is training with the Arsenal team at the moment, has said that Tierney is a natural leader.
Wilshere said about Tierney on talkSPORT: “He has not been there the last week because he was away on international duty. Everyone, the staff talk about him, what a great lad he is. Natural leader.”
Big player for Arsenal
Tierney has had injury problems during his time at Arsenal, but when fit and available, the 24-year-old has been superb.
The former Celtic star is one of the first names on the teamsheet under Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta.
What is remarkable about Tierney is that despite being only 24, he is a leader on the pitch.
We often see him give instructions to his teammates and is very vocal during matches.
Tierney is very good going forward and is solid at the back.
Arsenal have a true gem in Tierney, and we are not surprised at all to hear that everyone at the North London club is so impressed by the Scotsman.
The Arsenal no. 3 has played seven times in the Premier League so far this season.
In the going years, we could well see Tierney become the Arsenal captain.
