 Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has revealed why he has promoted Nigerian starlets, Arthur Okonkwo and Folarin Balogun. Arteta believes both Okonkwo and Balogun are now mature to the point where they can’t play in the academy because they have raised the level of the Gunners’ academy. The Spaniard added that both players have the hunger and they showed the desire to stay at Arsenal and fight to become one of the first-team regulars. Arteta made this known ahead of Arsenal’s Florida Cup tie against Inter Milan on Sunday.Speaking on Okonkwo and Balogun’s promotion, Arteta told Arsenal TV;“It is great.“That is the first thing they have to realise, the hard work is not done yet. The hard work is going to start right now, and the expectations start right now and if they have this mentality, they have the potential, we believe in them and they will have the opportunities.”“Both of them are really different but at the same time very similar,” Arteta added.“They have both raised the level of the academy to the point that it wasn’t any more for them, so we had to look to create the space around the first team for them to be able to develop in the way that we want them to.“I think they are the right age and they have space in the squad to do that and they have the hunger and they showed the desire to stay at the football club and fight to become one of the first-team regulars.” The post Why I promoted Nigerian starlets Okonkwo, Balogun to first team Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta reveals appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.

  1. I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the
    layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it
    yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays.

  2. I am now not positive where you are getting your info, however great topic.

    I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more.
    Thank you for excellent information I was looking for this information for my mission.

  3. My developer is trying to persuade me to move
    to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am worried about
    switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
