Rio Ferdinand has raved about Arsenal attacking midfielder Martin Odegaard Twitter while watching him in action against Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League on Saturday night.
The former Manchester United defender was very impressed by a skill displayed by Odegaard in the 20th minute of the Brighton vs Arsenal game.
The Norway international performed a superb trick with the ball in the Brighton penalty area to slip through his Arsenal team-mate, Brazil international Gabriel Martinelli, on goal.
However, Martinelli’s low ball in front of goal was cleared.
Rio Ferdinand on Martin Odegaard’s skills for Arsenal against Brighton and Hove Albion
In our opinion, Martin Odegaard is one of the best playmakers around and he’s only 24 years old.
The £85,000-a-week (The Mirror) Arsenal player is one of the first names on manager Mikel Arteta’s team sheet when he’s fit and available.
The former Real Madrid attacking midfielder is brilliant on the ball and has excellent vision.
Oh, he works hard too.
And this season, Odegaard is scoring goals.
The playmaker is thriving at this dynamic and hard-working Arsenal side who could win the Premier League title this season.
