After Arsenal missed out on the Premier League title in heart-breaking fashion, their skipper Martin Odegaard is focused on looking at the positives. Even though the Gunners have finished second for a second successive time, a lot of improvement can be found in their performances. Not only did they get more points than last season, Arsenal reached other milestones this campaign despite missing out on the league title on the final day of the season.

Ahead of the final Premier League Matchday of this campaign, both Manchester City and Arsenal had the chance to lift the coveted trophy. As it turns out, City won 3-1 over West Ham United to seal the top spot. Even though the Gunners also won, beating Everton 2-1, their victory mattered little, as they had to settle for the second spot yet again. Despite the final-day disappointment, Martin Odegaard is optimistic about the team’s future.

It’s been unbelievable: Martin Odegaard

Odegaard is happy with the progress they made this season, in comparison to the last one when they also finished second. Hence, he feels it will not take long before they win a major trophy. “I’m glad we got the win, to finish with a win at home was the only thing we wanted to do today. We did that but unfortunately we didn’t have the luck needed and were so close. We’re making big steps all the time,” Odegaard, quoted on, said after the game.

He added: “If you compare it to last season, we were a lot better and more mature with a new record of wins in the league, so we’re doing a lot of good things and it’s just a matter of time until we win some big trophies. We’re just going to keep pushing every day to do that. We’re allowed to feel a little bit disappointed at the moment, we came so close. But if you look at the season, it’s been unbelievable. I think the steps we are taking all the way feels so much stronger than last year.”

The Norwegian star then went on to praise the effort put in by his teammates and expressed how proud he is of the team. He also went on to praise the supporters for the part they played. “I’m proud of the boys and I’m proud of the team, the club, the fans and everyone. The support we’ve had throughout the whole season away and at home – everywhere it’s unbelievable. We love them so much and hopefully next season we can come back and give them a good trophy to celebrate,” he explained.
