Martin Odegaard ‘proud’ to play for Arsenal and hails warm welcome


artin Odegaard has hailed Arsenal for making him feel like a part of the club from “the first minute” he arrived in north London.

Odegaard, 22, arrived at Arsenal on loan from Real Madrid in the January transfer window as Mikel Arteta sought more creativity following Mesut Ozil’s move to Fenerbahce.

The Norway international made his full debut for Arsenal during Sunday’s 4-2 win over Leeds United, and looked tidy in possession as a slick Gunners attack helped Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang net a hat-trick.

It remains to be seen whether Odegaard will remain in north London after his current loan deal expires this summer, but the playmaker is delighted by the welcome he has received from the Gunners.

“It’s a bit different but I think I am adapting pretty okay,” he told Arsenal Player.

“The way they took me into the team – my teammates – and how they treated me, as well as the manager and everyone in the club, they helped me since the first minute.

“I feel really comfortable and a part of the team, so it’s been easy to come in to this team because of the way they are and the way they treated me. I’m just really happy to be here and I’m proud to be a part of this team.”
