“He provided everything you want from a modern full-back” Premier League legend praises Tierney

Alan Shearer has heaped praise on Kieran Tierney after the full-back’s top performance in Arsenal’s 4-0 win over West Brom.

Tierney has been one of the most consistent players at Arsenal since he joined the club, and in that game, he showed why he is so highly regarded.

He scored the first goal and set up another goal for Alexandre Lacazette at the Hawthorns.

He was also in fine form at the back as the Gunners kept a clean sheet, to make it two clean sheets in as many games.

At Celtic, he was one of their best players as they won several league titles as well as cups.

He has continued doing well at Arsenal and Shearer says that his performance against West Brom was a complete full-back performance.

He praised him for scoring, assisting another goal and helping his team to keep a clean sheet.

He said to the Premier League’s official website:

“He provided everything you want from a modern full-back, scoring a brilliant goal and setting up another while also helping his team keep a clean sheet.”

Arsenal spent £25m to sign him in 2019, he has shown enough for the club to consider his transfer fee more than justified.

They will hope that he maintains his current run of form in the remaining games of the season as they attempt to get back into the top four.

    Tierney is a complete fullback, and consistent as well. One of our best signings in recent years.

    Not only can he be a cornerstone for years to come, but hopefully named the captain next year.

    Among all his qualities I think his humble attitude is the most endearing. Simply refreshing for such a talented young man to check his ego at the club’s door.

    Tierney is a prime example of the bargains available in Britain. A future great and future captain of the Arsenal if he keeps developing at the same rate. This modest unassuming young man is a credit to his parents, in keeping his feet on the ground and focussing on his career as a professional footballer.

      Fantastic player

  3. Stan Adams says:

    Tierney is Afcs best full back since Ashley Cole.
