Former Arsenal and Manchester City defender, Bacary Sagna has expressed his admiration for the Gunners’ midfielder, Martin Odegaard.

Sagna praised Odegaard’s playing style, adding that he sees similarities with former Arsenal player, Mesut Ozil.

Odegaard has played an integral role in Mikel Arteta’s squad this season, scoring nine goals and providing eight assists.

Speaking to Paddy Power, Sagna said the Norway international plays with passion and is technically gifted, which is reminiscent of Ozil’s playing style.

Moreover, the former France international noted Odegaard’s intelligence on the ball and his ability to anticipate the movements of his teammates.

“I love Martin Odegaard and the way he plays. He plays with passion and technically, he is very good and smart on the ball,” Sagna told Paddy Power (via The Mirror)

“He reminds me of Mesut Ozil with the left foot and the way they turn players and anticipate the runs of their teammates. He is very clever because whenever he dribbles, he looks at the body shape of every player and tries to get away from trouble when he is under pressure.”
