Arsenal today completed yet another signing in the market and yet another youth team signing in the mould of George Lewis.
Here are his first words after signing for Arsenal.
“It’s really an unbelievable feeling. It feels really good right now,” he told Arsenal’s official website.
“I started playing football when I was maybe five years old at my local club called Stakkevollan IF, then I played there until I was about 12, then we moved and me and my brother both changed teams, so we joined the other team Tromsdalen, where I went to play for the first team.ĺ
“But before that I was in another team called Tromsø, who were in the top division at that time, before I came back in 2017 and then I really stayed at Tromsdalen for two years until last year where I moved to Fram Lavrik to get more opportunities playing.”
On his playing Style:
“My playing style is very direct. I like to dribble a lot, I like to express myself on the field, so they can expect a show from me, yeah!”
“Yeah, all of my family are Arsenal fans. When I was growing up, I really looked up to players like Adebayor, he was a really big role model for me, as well as Thierry Henry, and yeah, just to mention some of them.”
“The difference with playing with men and against men is that it’s probably more physical and you have to be strong in the mind because obviously when you’re young you won’t come through, you won’t play every game, you will probably be on the bench, but you have to be strong mentally to get past that and get through that.”
“What I hope to achieve is, of course, to play for the first team at Arsenal and get as many appearances and goals and assists as possible!”
