Jenkinson: I sometimes need to take a step back and remember I play for Arsenal

Arsenal youngster Carl Jenkinson admits he has to remind himself that he is playing for such a massive club.

The 19-year old was signed by Arsene Wenger from Charlton Athletic in the summer and has already made a number of appearances mainly as a right-back.

Jenkinson says it is a great personal achievement to be where he is but will certainly not take it for granted.

"Sometimes, I just have to take a step back and really appreciate where I am," he told Arsenal Player.

"From me to come to where I was to playing in the Premier League is obviously a big achievement for me.

"But the main thing I have to pinch myself about is that I'm actually playing for Arsenal.

"I can't really portray how special that is for a fan of the club and for someone who comes from a family that loves Arsenal so much.

"It's just a great thing to be becoming a part of Arsenal's history. Long may it continue."
