He reminds me of Dennis Bergkamp – Gallas identifies important Arsenal player

Former Arsenal defender, William Gallas has identified captain Martin Odegaard as an important player in the Gunners.

Gallas said the Norwegian reminds him of the club’s former midfielder Dennis Bergkamp.

He said this while expressing his happiness at Odegaard’s new contract with Mikel Arteta’s side.

Odegaard, who joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in 2021, recently signed a new long-term contract with the Premier League North London club.

“It is good news that Arsenal are signing Odegaard to a new contract,” Gallas told Genting Casino.

“He is a playmaker, and he is the player in this Arsenal team that is expected to unlock tight matches with his quality.

“The pass that he produced for Saka to then set-up Trossard in the Everton game was magnificent.

“He is such an important player for Arsenal. If you take him out of the team, Arsenal are not the same.

“I think you can compare Odegaard to Dennis Bergkamp. He is not on Bergkamp’s level yet – Bergkamp was an unbelievable player for Arsenal – but Odegaard reminds me of him. Odegaard can make the difference with his quality.”
