Arsenal prospect Kris Olsson admits he regards senior teammate Tomas Rosicky as a role model.

Olsson enjoyed his first visit abroad with the senior squad and was thankful for the help he was given by one player in particular.

“Tomas Rosicky gives me a lot of advice in training and in matches as well,” Olsson told Arsenal.com. “It all helps - Arteta and Wilshere helped me too. They have played at the top level for a long time so they have experience I can learn from.

“The tour was a really good experience. It was different as it was the first time I have travelled with the first team. You go away and you see the star players and how the fans scream their name. You want to hear your name being sung like that one day."
