Some Arsenal fans react to 2020 comments from Smith Rowe

Some Arsenal fans were reacting after comments from Emile Smith Rowe resurfaced after he signed a new contract.

The ace’s current deal was due to expire at the end of the 2022/2023 season. However, it was announced by the club today despite having been agreed for a while.

As well as earning himself a new deal, the midfielder also earned a new number. He will follow in the footsteps of club legend Dennis Bergkamp in wearing the number 10 shirt.

Back in 2020, the young star claimed that he could see himself being a ‘one-club man’.

When talking about staying at Arsenal, Smith Rowe told the club’s matchday programme: “My dream is to become a legend here, I can see myself being a one-club man if everything works out.”
