Rio Ferdinand names Arsenal most talented youth star

Manchester Rio Ferdinand claims Arsenal wonder kid Charlie Patino would be better than all the stars that have come out from the club’s youth team. He described the youngster as a ‘joke’ and the best, adding that the midfielder can reach the very top of the game if he continues his development with Arsenal. Patino, 18, netted his first goal for Arsenal on his first-team debut against Sunderland in the FA Cup earlier last month. Many Arsenal fans had been calling for Mikel Arteta to give the youngster a chance just like the club gave the likes of Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka. Ferdinand believes Patino could be the ‘best’ to come out of the Hale End academy. “Go on YouTube and watch his clips. It’s a joke what you see, the talent he’s got,” Ferdinand told BT Sport. “I...

‘I want to get better, and I want more trophies’ – Roberto Firmino

Roberto Firmino’s thirst for self-improvement is far from quenched, with the No.9 detailing his desire to drive his game to new levels to help Liverpool win more trophies. A critical component in Jürgen Klopp’s Champions League-winning machine, Firmino is one of seven Reds included on this year’s 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d’Or and became the first Brazilian to reach the milestone of 50 Premier League goals earlier this season.
