Veteran coach Arsene Wenger has been impressed by young English defender and says Rob Holding is promising . Coach Wenger was quoted saying that it is rare to find “young and promising” centre backs like Rob Holding in modern football.Arsenal signed the young defender from Bolton Wanderers and he is a third player on Wenger’s books so far in preparation for next season.
“We chose to take him from Bolton because of his quality,” the manager said before travelling to the United States.
“He’s a young, promising centre back. You don’t find centre backs that often and we can educate them when they’re at that age. We can give them all the ingredients we think are important.
“Krystian Bielik is developing well now and he can also be used as a central midfielder, so overall it’s an opportunity I wanted to take because that’s a difficult position to find nowadays.” Said Wenger.
Wenger and his side are currently training and playing friendlies as they shape up for the 2016/17 English Premier League season. They finish 2nd in their last season’s encounter and they definitely will be hoping to clinch the tittle this time around.
The gunners are also competing in Europe and the club is surely looking to do better in the Champions League as they have failed to even reach the semi finals these past couple years.
Analysis on Arsenal’s performance last season show that the team is on the right path so who knows maybe the Uefa Champions League drought will be over soon.The competition is very tough though in Europe and Wenger is obviously aware that European giants (Barcelona,Madrid, Bayern, PSG) are fierce competition
.The Gunners are also one of the favorites in the domestic league competitions such as the FA Cup.With players such as Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanches still on the Arsenal roaster, the Premier League giants a going to be a difficult team to beat next season.
