The Arsenal skipper Martin Odegaard has been deemed by many as the “super footballer” and has even been referred as an “extension” of Mikel Arteta out on the pitch.’ At the age of 23, Odegaard is not only donning the armband of his club but also of his country Norway. The modern-day skipper is not someone who screams at your face to get you going, instead, the player is someone who leads by example on the pitch. Odegaard is considered as more of a modern-day skipper. We don’t see captains like Manchester United’s Roy Keane or Arsenal’s very own Patrick Vieira nowadays. The modern-day captains are less vocal in the dressing room and let the performance on the pitch do the talking.

Martin Odegaard as an extension of Arsenal manager Arteta on the pitch

Owen Hargreaves have praised the Norwegian captain after the recent match against Wolves. The Arsenal captain scored two goals in the match which made the Gunners sit at the top of the table before the break. “Odegaard is the club captain,” Hargreaves told Premier League Productions,

 “When you watch him. You would say that he isn’t your traditional captain. Your Roy Keane or your Paul Ince. That generation.

“But the young captains now are different. They lead by example. I think he leads by his habits on the training pitch. He’s an extension of Mikel Arteta.

He further added,

“Quiet, a super footballer and he’s reliable. I think he is a symbol of what they are producing at Arsenal. He’s really consistent.”

Odegaard to rest during the World Cup

Some Arsenal players are going to the World Cup in hopes of doing well for their countries. Unfortunately, Martin Odegaard’s Norway failed to qualify for the World Cup. He will get the much need rest during this World Cup before Arsenal return to the Premier League during Christmas.
