Martin Odegaard, an offensive midfielder for Arsenal, has said to Football. London that he enjoys working with Fabio Vieira.
After Arsenal beat Bodo/Glimt on Thursday night in the UEFA Europa League, Odegaard made comments about the club’s summer purchase from FC Porto (cost: £34 million; Football. London).
Odegaard, a playmaker for Norway’s national team, and Vieira, an offensive midfielder from Portugal, both got the start.
Martin Odegaard on Arsenal Teammate Fabio Vieira
It’s great to play alongside him,” Martin Odegaard gushed about Vieira. He has excellent talents as a player, particularly with the ball in his possession. I have fun when we play together, and I hope that we will continue to do so in the future.
I find him to be a little unconventional. I’m not one to make many comparisons, but I will say that each of us brings something unique to the table and that we each have the versatility to play a variety of positions.
Fabio Vieira’s injury history at Arsenal has delayed the debut of his full potential.
The 22-year-old has played in four Premier League games for the Gunners so far this season, one as a starter and three as a substitute.
The young Portuguese player has scored once in those contests.
In three games in the UEFA Europa League this season, Vieira has contributed to two goals and one assist for Mikel Arteta’s squad.
It’s great news for Arsenal supporters because Odegaard and Vieira can play together despite being playmakers.
The Gunners plan to make an impression in both the Premier League and the UEFA Europa League this season.
