Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger: ‘Calum Chambers was outstanding at centre-half today’ [Video]
Nominally signed as a right back, Arsene Wenger also has designs on grooming Calum Chambers into a centre-half.
The 19-year old Southampton product was thrust into the deep end today, given his first start at centre-half against Man City in the Community Shield win.
And he repaid his manager’s faith, putting in ‘an outstanding performance’, according to Wenger.
‘For a 19-year old, he was outstanding considering he hasn’t played so much in that position; all going well he has bright future ahead of him.’
After such an assured and mature display, who’s to say he Chambers won’t be a regular in the Arsenal central defence this season.
