Arsenal star is named the third most impactful player in the world

Since moving to Arsenal, Martin Ødegaard has been one of the best players in the world. He continues to excel and make an increasing impact on the Gunners’ team.

The Norwegian was almost considered a flop when he struggled for game time at Real Madrid, but Mikel Arteta rescued him.

His move to England transformed his life, and he now captains Arsenal, having finished second in successive seasons in the Premier League.

It is just a matter of time before he enters the Ballon d’Or conversation, and CIES Football Observatory, via Give Me Sport, has named him the third most impactful player in the world.

Ødegaard was only outranked by Manchester City’s Rodri and Bayer Leverkusen’s Granit Xhaka.

This recognition highlights the significant difference Ødegaard makes whenever he steps on the pitch to represent Arsenal.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Odegaard has been one of our best signings since Mikel Arteta became the club’s manager.

Signing the Norwegian and making him the Arsenal captain are two decisions that have made us trust Arteta even more.

Odegaard and his teammates are getting closer to the ultimate price, and next season could be trophy-laden for this group.


So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

  1. Not only our most technical player, but also our most energetic player. He even goes beyond our forwards when closing down the opposition, because our forwards are lazy in closing down opposition, so he has to show them how it’s done.

  2. Odegaard has been excellent and very impactful, no doubt.

    Also, Saka was ranked 8th.

    Finally, Granit Xhaka was 2nd! I was surprised he came out above his own teammate Wirtz (4th) using their “impact score” methodology, let alone 2nd!

  3. Top player, Real leader! A wholesome holiday post captioned “recharging” alongside team mate Havertz, goes to show the humility and fondness between him and his team mates. Well done Martin.

  4. Odegaard was the driving force and the engine room for the team throughout the season. Where he performed below par, the team was affected.

  5. Odegard simply makes my day watching football each time arsenal play.
    Win or loose, I always feel ok watching him play.

  6. What I want to see is that martin playering and injured there I feel bad Remember martin O………. is the heart of my Team Arsenal
