Arsenal boss tips inexperienced youngster to be ‘great’

Arsene Wenger has moved to claim that Krystian Bielik has all the right attributes to become a great player for Arsenal.

The Polish youngster joined from Legia Warsaw back in January 2015 shortly after his 17th birthday, and has gone onto make two appearances in the senior team thus far.

He has already been transitioned into a centre-back, having joined as a defensive midfielder, and has been one of the biggest talking points of our development squad since his arrival.

Arsene Wenger has now move to praise the progression of the defender, talking him up to be a ‘great player’ in the future.

He said: “The plan with him is to continue his development. He works with us a lot, with the first team.

“He has developed very well and for me he has all the attributes to be a great player.

“Now, he is not ready experience wise to play in our team, so hopefully I will consider the situation at the end of December to see if he can go out somewhere or whether we’ll keep him here until the end of the season.”

Competition for a centre-back role in the near future looks tough for the youngster, with Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny forming a formidable partnership currently, and with Calum Chambers and Rob Holding also doing well so far this term.

Wenger is considering sending Bielik out on loan for the second-half of the season, and that should give him the platform to showcase his true ability in the first-team, something that looks near impossible for him to do amidst the competition in North-London.

Is Chambers Middlesbrough loan putting him back in contention for a CB role at Arsenal? Are Holding and Bielik our future defensive pairing?

  1. We never can tell our future CB pairing.
    I hope Holding, Chambers and Bielik develop well to give us good options in the future without spending exorbitant fees.

  2. Bielik performed well in pre season. He is big and strong and definitely a star in the making.

  3. I spoke to a Leeds supporter the other day and he says Arsenal will always be his second team or the one PL team he has massive respect for because he hates what the other big clubs keep are spending each year compared to Arsenal who have always given youngsters a shot and try to keep a fair wage structure, along with offering correct transfer fees in his view. I guess it might have something to do with how Leeds tried to gate crash the top of the league by spending too much money on players who went on to prove they weren’t worth it. He says Arsenal hands down get the best bang for their buck.

      1. I thumbed you up, but on second thoughts nothing cute about that. We heard some fans ranting laughing stock this ..and we’re butt of the jokes that ..that I thought their might be someone interested to know what an actual conversation went like.

  4. Watched Middlesbrough’s last match against Watford. Chambers was putting their keeper(Guzan) in check for not coming out and smothering the ball.
