Arsenal captain Odegaard appreciates praise from Haaland and Frank

Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard has appreciated praise from Brentford boss Thomas Frank and Norway teammate Erling Haaland.

Frank likened Odegaard to City star Kevin de Bruyne - something Haaland agrees with.

The City striker said: "You see at the start now, he looks hungry to score goals. That's something I like to see. He's taking steps, that's important. He is still young and still needs to develop. What can I say about De Bruyne? He's a good man, there really isn't much more to say."

Asked about the praise and his improved goalscoring, Norway skipper Odegaard told VG: "It is a skill I have wanted to develop for a long time.

"A lot of it is mental – being in the right positions and what you're looking for on the pitch. I feel there is a lot to gain from simply having the right focus. It is something I try to work on."
