Video: £34m Arsenal player goes mad at his international teammates, not happy with their defending
Arsenal midfielder Martin Odegaard was not happy with the defending of his Norway teammates in their recent clash with Sweden.
Norway ended up winning the away game 2-1 thanks to a double by new Manchester City striker Erling Haaland.
Manchester United’s Anthony Elanga got his first senior international goal to pull one back but Norway got over the line.
A video has been posted on Twitter of Odegaard furious with his teammates over their slack defending of a short corner.
Odegaard shows leadership for Norway
Aaron Ramsdale recently revealed Odegaard’s closeness to Mikel Arteta at Arsenal, joking in an interview with Peter Crouch that he is ‘parched’.
Arteta is famously intense on the sidelines and it seems that Odegaard is similar on the pitch, and is demanding of his teammates.
He is the captain of Norway and that shows the maturity and leadership of a player who is not just a fancy playmaker.
Arsenal have been accused of lacking leadership for many years now and Arteta will hope that Odegaard can grow into one for years to come.
Arsenal need to kick on next season and Odegaard is a big part of what Arteta is trying to do at the Emirates Stadium, where he has put his faith in youth.
Odegaard can play in a variety of roles and will hope to have a new striker to provide assists for by the time next term kicks off.
He will of course come up against his international teammate Haaland, who looks to have added firepower to this City side, who have now won the Premier League twice in a row without a recognised striker.
