“I think it’s something he could easily do and take in his stride, not a problem,” Holding told Arsenal Player. “He’s been really good with me, he brought me into the England set-up.
“I wish him all the best for the few games that he takes charge of and who knows in the future if he takes it full-time.
“He talks a lot to me, Calum and Kortney Hause, who are the three young centre-halves that are there.
“He’ll just pull us aside and just say what he thinks, what he thinks is easier to do and where we should be. His experience is invaluable.”
