Arteta: “Tierney could captain Arsenal

The Scotsman is a born leader.

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta believes Kiran Tierney could become the captain of the Gunners. As a reminder, the 23-year-old Scottish defender moved to Arsenal in 2019 from Celtic.

“I think he can become the captain. He is respected and admired by every employee and every player. Tierney displays her qualities naturally. He is a humble guy, but he has everything that we want to see in players, and that is part of the DNA of this club.

It took him some time to play here, he suffered a serious injury. But he is a born leader. You see how he behaves on the field, and when he speaks, he says the right things, and this is exactly what we need. ” said Arteta.
