Emile Smith, according to Rio Ferdinand, is a good player. Rowe has been compared to former Arsenal midfielders Robert Pires and Alexander Hleb as a vital component in the club’s impressive unbeaten run.
Arsenal have gone on a 10-match unbeaten streak in all competitions following a poor start to the season that saw them drop to the bottom after three games, with Mikel Arteta’s team surging up the table into European contention as well as the League Cup quarter-finals.
While former Manchester United defender Ferdinand lauded Arsenal’s entire team spirit, he singled out Smith Rowe for his outstanding performance.
‘There’s a team, there’s a united team,’ Smith Rowe stated on the Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE YouTube channel before his England call-up on Tuesday. There’s a sense of belonging at Arsenal that I haven’t seen in a long time.
‘Right now, no one is doing more than Emile Smith Rowe.’ Ferdinand compared the midfielder to Robert Pires, who was a vital player of Arsenal’s last title-winning team, the ‘Invincibles,’ who went the entire season without losing.
