Arsene Wenger has praised Joel Campbell’s “individual quality” and his team ethic.


The Costa Rica forward has had limited first-team opportunities but is set to play in the Gunners’ Capital One Cup fourth-round clash at Sheffield Wednesday.


Wenger has praised Campbell’s attitude and backed the 23-year-old to make a big impression at Hillsborough.

“I like Joel Campbell very much for two reasons,” the manager said. “One is that he has outstanding individual quality, but he is also a team player. He works very hard for the team.

“I’m convinced he will get a chance here and that he will take it. He has another opportunity against Sheffield Wednesday and I’m hopeful that he will show that he has the quality to play for Arsenal.

“When you get the chance, you have to be ready. To be ready, you have to prepare. I must say that Joel Campbell and Calum Chambers are two players who do absolutely everything right.

“They are prepared, the preparation they have created will give them the confidence against Sheffield Wednesday and I’m confident they will play well.”
