Martin Odegaard believes we are “building something special” at the club under Mikel Arteta.
Despite having the youngest squad in the Premier League, we're only four points off fourth place with three games in hand and our Norway international is confident that the squad will fulfil its potential.
“I think we’re a very, very interesting group: a lot of young players, and a lot of hungry players,” Odegaard said. “I feel like we’re building something special here with all the players and the staff.
“It’s really interesting what we’re trying to do and I’m happy with the situation, very happy to be part of the team and hopefully we can keep improving and get better each game. Then we’ll see where it takes us.
“It helps me, to be around players in the same situation [in terms of age],” he added. “I’ve been through a lot, even though I’m pretty young. In this team I’m not the youngest anymore and I have some experience and I can use that in a positive way, and help the other young players.
“We’re a great group, we have a lot of big young talents but also some more experienced players, I think the mix is good and the team is very hungry. It’s really nice to be part of the team.”
