Arsenal midfielder Martin Odegaard has revealed the reason for his brilliance this season.
The Norwegian said his impressive form with Arsenal this season was due to talks with the club’s coaching staff.
The 24-year-old former Real Madrid midfielder was given the club’s captain’s armband by manager Mikel Arteta following the termination of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s contract.
The Norway international has been instrumental in Arsenal’s title bid this season, scoring eight league goals and providing five assists in 17 appearances.
Odegaard attributed his form to tireless discussions with Arsenal coaches and hard work.
Speaking to Fiplay, the Arsenal captain said, “It’s about how we play and my role in the team and my focus; I’ve worked on it a lot.
“I’ve talked a lot with the coaches about getting into the right areas of the field. It’s a lot about mentality, and a lot more than that. It’s good that hard work pays off.”
