Bodo/Glimt boss Knutsen: We were beaten by two world class Arsenal players


Bodo/Glimt boss Kjetil Knutsen sung the praises of two Arsenal players after Thursday's Europa League defeat.

Knutsen conceded he harbours plenty of admiration for Arsenal while also dubbing Gabriel Jesus and fellow Norwegian Martin Odegaard as 'simply world-class'.

"During the break we talked about how we were a bit passive,' he explained to Mareritt. "We stopped the ball and did not take advantage of the spaces we had.

"In the second half we looked a lot more like we should. But they are not kind to us when they put on Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard. Then we meet quality. It's world class, quite simply.

"They attack with a lot of people, they're patient and then suddenly they have that burst in the final third. If you only defend, you don't stand a chance against them."
