EPL: He’s hard to stop – Hasselbaink names ‘very important’ player in Arsenal squad


Former Chelsea star, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, has named midfielder Martin Odegaard as a very important player in the Arsenal squad.

Hasselbaink said it is very hard for an opponent to stop Odegaard when he moves with the ball.

He said this after the Norway international scored a brace in Arsenal’s Premier League 2-0 win over Wolves on Saturday.

“When he plays like that and especially in the second-half and he takes the ball and he runs at people he is very, very difficult to play against,” Hasselbaink told Sky Sports.

“He is hard to stop. Here, his first touch isn’t great, but he counter-presses and he wins the ball and then he is a danger, but he keeps his head up and gives it to Zinchenko, and then Odegaard finds a moment again and is very calm, and it is a great finish.

“It is not a simple finish, it is not easy, but he stays very calm. Here he gets the ball, gets a touch and gets it down and just puts it in the side net, and as Jamie already spoke about, he is very, very important to Arsenal.”
