Joe cole told BT Sport as Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney came out after a full time and practiced his crossing.
Tierney replaced Arsenal in their 3-1 win over West Bromwich Albion.
However, the left-back clearly didn’t feel he had enough practice in the final third during the game.
Tierney instead wanted to warm up after Arsenal players listened to Mikel Arteta’s full-time squad speech.
And Cole was very impressed with the attitude of the Scotsman.
He said, “Just a little mention, Tierney came out after playing 30 minutes and practicing his crossing.
“We talked about the characters Arsenal need. Many Arsenal fans have called on him to be captain of this club and to do so when you come back from an injury shows that he has his finger on the pulse and that he has the desire to do well for this club. soccer. . “
Tierney has been one of the few Arsenal players to come out this season.
The former Celtic may have missed part of the season with injury, but his passion and energy have always been clear.
Tierney’s Arsenal teammates haven’t always shown the same level of dynamism and professionalism as him.
And if Arteta is to be successful in the future, he will surely count on Tierney to be a part of his Arsenal squad for years to come.
