The Norway National team captain Martin Odegaard has been confirmed the official captain of Arsenal football club today. The 23-year-old took the leader role following the exit of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexander Lacazette. Odegaard had a terrific campaign with Arsenal last season after he sealed his permanent move to the club from Real Madrid last year.
Arsenal FC on their website acknowledged his new role and published that other appointments will follow up after their game against Sevilla.
“We are delighted to announce that Martin Odegaard has been named our new men’s first-team captain.”
“The 23-year-old has made a huge impact since arriving at Emirates Stadium from Real Madrid in January 2021, initially on loan, and has gone on to play 60 times, scoring nine goals.”
“Odegaard has experience of wearing the armband, having been Norway captain since March 2021, whom he has won 43 caps for.”
“We wish Martin every success as our captain.
We will have more on the appointment here after today’s match.”
