Mikel Arteta hails Arsenal star


Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has hailed Leandro Trossard following his side’s Premier League win over Burnley on Saturday.

Arteta said Trossard connects everyone, adding that the Arsenal forward is so intelligent.

He was impressive for Arsenal against Burnley at Emirates Stadium.

The Belgian scored a goal as Arsenal defeated Vincent Kompany’s side 3-1.

Speaking about Trossard’s display, Arteta said at his post-match press conference, “That is the word – I think he connects everybody. He’s so intelligent.

“I think he moves in ways that attract people that generate spaces and options for people.

“Today he did that really good because it was so difficult and the spaces were so small to attack. He gave us a lot of threat and possibilities to connect and find spaces for us.”
