After the game, Olsson revealed to the Swedish press how Ceballos complained about his performance during the Euro 2020 qualifier:
He said to me to stop acting like I was Messi.
I can’t remember what I said back.
I thought it was strange. I don’t understand what he really meant.

Will Arsenal manage to keep Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos?
Returning to Arsenal and Dani Ceballos, rumours are flying about regarding whether the Gunners will manage to keep the midfielder at the club after this season.
Ceballos joined the Gunners on loan from Real Madrid in the summer.
Unfortunately for Arsenal, they failed to secure an option to buy Ceballos from Madrid when the deal expires.
However, this week, Spanish daily AS have claimed that Arsenal hope to sign Ceballos on a permanent deal next summer. AS reported:
(Arsenal) are aware that it will be very difficult to convince Real Madrid (to sell Ceballos), but seeing how quickly he has adapted to the team and the performance he is giving, they will definitely try to sign him.
