Gary Lineker reacts as Nwaneri sets Premier League record

Barcelona legend, Gary Lineker, has made a hilarious remark as Arsenal’s Ethan Nwaneri becomes the youngest debutant in the English Premier League (EPL) history.

Nwaneri officially became the youngest debutant in Premier League history following his injury-time substitution against Brentford on Sunday.

The midfielder is just 15 years of age, but Arsenal’s hierarchy have clearly seen enough to offer him a place in the first-team squad.

While many others were quick to react to the news of Nwaneri’s place in Premier League history, Lineker dropped a hilarious remark about it.

In a tweet via his Twitter handle, Lineker said, “15-year-old Ethan Nwaneri has come on for @Arsenal. Thankfully it’s an early kick-off so he can get his homework done after the game.”

Nwaneri was promoted into the first team after his performances for the youth team marked him as a standout performer.
