Freddie Ljungberg has told The Ornstein & Chapman podcast that he expects Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney to become a “great” player for the Gunners in years to come – and commented on the incident against Leeds.
Tierney, 23, has become a fan favourite at Arsenal despite playing just 38 times in all competitions for the north London side since his move from Celtic in the summer of 2019. Many fans have noticed his leadership qualities.
So much so, that some think the £80k-a-week (Spotrac) Scot should be considered as the club’s captain. On the flip side, Arsenal are really struggling at the moment – with a lack of form seeing Arsenal slip into a lowly 14th position.
Ljungberg, who worked with Tierney during the interim phase between the transition from Unai Emery and Mikel Arteta, states the ex-Celtic man has a winning mentality and made an exciting prediction about his time at Arsenal.
