have not lost a single match in their last 5 Premier League matches and they find themselves 9th in the table. They will be facingManchester United
at weekend. Tony Adams, former Arsenal player says thatRob Holding
is captain material and alongsideTierney
, they are showing the right attitude.
“Rob Holding is a captain in the making for me,”
Gunners great Adams, who led the club for several years during his own distinguished career, told Stadium Astro.
“I would like him to get on with it. He has had injuries. I had won four trophies by the time I was 25. I’m not saying it’s my standards, but he has the right attitude and so has Tierney.
“I’m loving [Thomas] Partey. It’s all fingers crossed. He came in against United and was outstanding – it was the first time in a long time that I have been excited by a presence. We have always needed that and you go back to Gilberto and Manu Petit, these invisible screens.
“I like Gabriel as well, physically he’s got everything going for him.
“There are a few signs, not enough, but a few signs of growth. What Arsenal need to do, fundamentally, is build and start again. Work with the academy, step by step, lay the foundations.”
