Arsenal star reacts on Instagram as Zech Medley scores for new club
Zech Medley left Arsenal last week ending his long association with the Gunners to sign for Oostende. The centre-back notched during his first game for his new club yesterday; with Emile Smith Rowe reacting.
The Belgian outfit enjoyed a stunning Saturday. They defeated local club Voorwaarts Zwevezele 9-3, with Medley heading home his first goal.
Medley played three games for Arsenal. He spent last season on loan with Gillingham and Kilmarnock though and his chances looked bleak at the Emirates Stadium.
His 28 games last season gave him a superb chance to play first-team football. That experience should put him in good stead for his challenge in Belgium.
What has Smith Rowe said about ex-Arsenal starlet Medley?
Both players came through the Hale End youth academy and clearly know a lot about each other. Where Smith Rowe has made a name for himself at Arsenal, Medley has been forced into heading off somewhere else.
The 20-year-old took the Premier League by storm last season. He made his first top-flight appearance on Boxing Day and stayed in the team for the remainder of the campaign.
He’s developed into a fine player and for Medley the challenge is to do the same. Of course, he will now hope to do that at a different club, but he has a point to prove.
Following Medley’s great start for his new club, Smith Rowe provided a short and sweet response to his former teammate.
