Sousa on settling in, Hutchinson, style of play

Making the move from the Midlands to north London as a teenager might faze some players - but not Lino Sousa.

The powerful left back signed professional terms with us on Friday, and is already loving life in our academy.

This is what he told Arsenal Media:


on how he’s settled in…

I feel good. The players have made me feel welcome and I’ve been with the under-18s and under-23s as well, so it’s all good and they’re a good bunch of lads.


on already making his debut for the under-18s…

It was a good feeling! It’s been a while since I’ve played and to just be back out there was a joy, and to get the 4-0 win over Chelsea was even better.


on whether he’s excited to play with any of our youngsters…

Yeah, there’s a few tricky players to be fair! I’m going to say Omari, I’ve played against Omari before. Brooke as well, he’s a good right back, and there’s a lot of good players to be fair, so I’m just excited to be here and just join that team.


on his style of play…

I’m a hard-working person. I’m honest, I would say, I like to get forward a lot, I like to defend and run, and just enjoy myself and express myself on the pitch. Hopefully the fans will be able to see that.
