Emery urges ‘improving’ Smith Rowe to stay ‘humble.’

Highly-rated Arsenal youngster Emile Smith Rowe scored his first Gunners goal last night during his sides 3-0 Europa League victory away to FK Qarabag.

There has been a massive buzz around the talented 18-year-old attacking midfielder since he put in some dazzling displays in pre-season and Gunners boss Unai Emery has used him in Europe and in the Carabao Cup so far this season.

However, the Arsenal coach has urged the England youth international to keep his feet on the ground and keep working hard every day in training.

“In pre-season, Emile Smith Rowe worked very well with us,” Emery told his post-match press conference.

“He knows how we want to play and he is very humble to continue improving and progressing with us and in every training and match, like today.

“A little bit of all the qualities he has: physical, mentality and quality with his right foot. Working in combinations with other players.

“If I can say one condition, for me, it’s his mentality. He is humble and he is humble to listen every day in training, in the video analysis and also before the match to continue improving and to keep taking one step more, like today.

“The last matches he played, for example against Brentford, he had three actions in the opposition boxes and didn’t score. But today, he had two and one was a goal.

“I think this is one step more for him. I prefer to not speak a lot about him, because I think it’s best for him to continue to be humble and continue working in every match to keep his feet on the ground.”
