Martin Odegaard, the captain of Arsenal, has issued a warning to his team’s Premier League competitors, saying there is still “more to come” from the Gunners. When the season’s last 11 games begin, Arsenal is now in first place, five points ahead of Manchester City.
Odegaard assumed the position of club captain at the beginning of the current campaign, and he has played a significant role in guiding his teammates to the Premier League championship this year. While there is still work to be done, there are encouraging signs that the Gunners will continue to be a strong contender even if they do not win the championship this year.
In spite of competition from players like Harry Kane, the 24-year-old midfielder won the Premier League Player of the Year Award at the London Football Awards presentation.
“I want to say thank you for this award and to everyone who voted for me,” Odegaard stated in his acceptance speech.
There were many deserving winners on the team [Arsenal] and many excellent candidates. It’s amazing to see the club being recognized here tonight with all the honors, and I want to share this [award] with the entire team.
It demonstrates how far we’ve come as a club, and I’m quite proud of what we’re doing this season is quite unique, so I’m thrilled to be a part of that. I’m quite hopeful for the future since I know there will be more to come.
Mikel Arteta, the team’s manager, received the Manager of the Year award for his excellent performance this season. Bukayo Saka, who was also nominated for Player of the Year, won the Premier League Young Player of the Year title ahead of colleagues Gabriel Martinelli and William Saliba.
