‘Magician’: Yannick Bolasie posts tweet about 23-year-old Arsenal man during game against Man United
The former Everton winger labelled Odegaard a ‘magician’ but said the 23-year-old needs to shoot more often.
Arteta’s men thought they had taken the lead in the first-half through Gabriel Martinelli. But Odegaard was judged to have fouled Christian Erisken in the build-up.
Then Arteta’s men found themselves behind as Antony scored on his United debut.
Odegaard was central to Arsenal’s attacking threat in the game as he continued to link-up play brilliantly for Arteta’s men.
But Bolasie feels the Norway international needs to shoot instead of passing sometimes.
Bolasie posts tweet about Odegaard
The former Palace winger took to Twitter and described Odegaard as a ‘magician’.
But he seems to have hinted that the 23-year-old should try to shoot more often.
The tweet reads: “Ode is a magician but man just needs him to let fly sometimes….can’t always play in them right situations.”
Odegaard was eventually replaced by Emile Smith Rowe in the second-half after suffering a knock against Aston Villa during the week.
Marcus Rashford put Erik Ten Hag’s men 2-1 up just after half-time and then Arteta made some bold substitutions as he tried to chase the game.
Arsenal eventually paid the price for it as Rashford grabbed his second of the afternoon.
The Gunners suffered their first defeat of the Premier League campaign today after winning all of their previous games.
Arteta will be disappointed to have not built on a promising start to the season but his side didn’t play badly today.
The young Arsenal side will now have to regroup and look towards their first Europa League game of the season on Thursday evening.
