Ex-Arsenal player, Per Mertesacker has come out to say that Ovie Ejeheri has the potential to break into the first team. He recently revealed that his goalie just needs to step up his game to make that happen.
According to him, if the youngster works hard enough, he definitely has what it takes to shine once given the opportunity to play in senior games.
He added that Ovie only has to go through his learning journey at the Emirates Stadium and grow from there.
His words, “Ovie has the chance to break into the first team, all of our young pros have a chance if they work hard enough, however understanding the stage of the journey that he is on is key at the moment.”
“There will be a lot of exposure to senior games needed for a young talented goalkeeper to gain trust and earn the right to be a first-choice goalkeeper at the highest level.”
“He will need to go through his learning journey, which will be based on hard work, a lot of mistakes and never stop driving to achieve his goal.”
“He will need to go through these in order to be successful in football and if not, we have a humble person with a multitude of skills who will find another place to be great at!”
