Commenting on the opinions that Eddie Nketiah is not capable of leading Arsenal’s attack and helping the Gunners win major titles, Paul Brown believes that this is not a problem worth worrying about, because coach Mikel Arteta simply wants Nketiah to score every time he plays.
The British journalist shared:
“I think sometimes people focus too much on Nketiah, because people don’t think he has what it takes to help Arsenal win the title. But, I don’t think that’s his role. Arsenal do not rely on Nketiah to start as a striker every week.”
“Arsenal just needs Nketiah to score when he’s on the field, and to be honest, he’s doing that. Arteta has always liked Nketiah, he has always been a big fan of this player. There was a time when Nketiah almost left Arsenal, he almost agreed to move to Crystal Palace, but suddenly found himself in the team and kept scoring goals.”
