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.”
Smith Rowe comments reassure Arsenal fans
The comments from Smith Rowe reassure Arsenal fans over his future during the days of modern football.
It’s extremely rare to come across a ‘one-club man’ during the current nature of the sport. The most recent professional to spend his entire career at one team is Igor Akinfeev.
Russia’s former number one has been with CSKA Moscow his entire career. He made his way through the academy all the way up to the first team.
And then you have the small matter of Lionel Messi.
Here is how fans reacted…
This is the sort of player we need at the club. Arsenal through and through! its what we have been missing for years. Wilshere was the last one but he was ruined by injuries. Now we have ESR, Balogoun and Saka! Can’t wait to see us hopefully build around them in seasons to come.— James Butler Photo (@JamesButler2701) July 22, 2021
Everything will work out for you and Saka, man. Arsenal through and through ❤️— Sugamite™✪ (@Sugamite2) July 22, 2021

It will work out once the Kroenkes sell up. He’ll be world class in a few years— Amar ☬ (@AmarD08) July 22, 2021
I love him.— Adam (@afctuajm) July 22, 2021
Jamie Carragher type of legend we’re gonna have then https://t.co/uZs2cAUFF1— zo (@zohino_) July 22, 2021
