Arsenal coach Burton: NextGen great for our young players

Arsenal U21 coach Terry Burton is looking forward to their NextGen quarterfinal ageist CSKA Moscow tonight.

Whatever happens, Burton has been delighted with the impact competing in NextGen has had on his players.

"It gives them the belief that they are playing against the best, and that is what you want to match yourself up against," he told

"You match yourself up, whether it is a right back against a left winger and you have to win your duel against them. You hope the confidence that comes from competing against the very best proves that you are moving along in the right direction."
