Arsenal midfielder and Norway international Martin Odegaard, in a recent statement, has named the two defenders he has ever faced in his football career so far.
Odegaard recently completed a permanent transfer from Real Madrid to Emirate stadium in the summer transfer window after he had already spent the second half of last season on loan with the Gunners.
In the short space of his career, Odegaard has played in the top divisions in the Netherlands, Spain and now with Arsenal in the EPL.
Odegaard named Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk and former Real Madrid and now PSG defender Sergio Ramos as the two toughest defenders he has faced.
Metro UK quoted the Norwich midfielder as saying, “That is a course I have hard one, of to mention Sergio Ramos, I played against him a couple of times in Spain.
“Also, Virgil van Dijk, I played against him with the national team, so I would say those two maybe. They were tough.”
“I’m positive for the future, we have a young group, I think one of the youngest teams in the league and I think with time we will get better and better,” he added.
Odegaard’s statement comes ahead of Arsenal weekend clash vs Liverpool.
