Arsenal boss Arteta: White very happy at right-back

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is delighted with Ben White’s form at right-back.

Speaking in his press conference ahead of the Chelsea game, Arteta said about White playing out of position.

The manager said: “I think he is very happy. I think he is really enjoying it. He finds himself with a bit of freedom and you can see, when he has space, how he likes to attack. I think he is happy there.”

Asked if he was surprised by his performances there, he continued: “Yeah, but he has this capacity. Physically he is a really special player. He is very intelligent and very gifted, and he has a lot of courage to play this game.

“If you tell him to play in midfield, he will. And he will give his best.”
