‘They Were Tough’ - Arsenal’s Martin Odegaard Names Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk and PSG's Sergio Ramos as Best Defenders
Ahead of Liverpool's game against Arsenal, Martin Odegaard has named the toughest opponents he's faced and there are some familiar faces.
Arsenal signed former wonderkid Martin Odegaard for a reported fee of £31.5million last summer.
The ex Real Madrid player was meant to be the heir of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo when he broke onto the scene at the age of 15.
Odegaard never really lit the world on fire at the Spanish club though and was sent on loan four times before signing for the Gunners.
However, he looks to have found his level at Arsenal and has impressed so far this season.
