He’s got absolute velvet left foot, can do anything – Joe Cole hails Arsenal midfielder
Joe Cole, a former Chelsea player, praised Arsenal's Fabio Vieira, calling him a player with a "velvet left foot" and someone who can do anything with his feet.
This came after the former Porto star scored one of the three goals in Arsenal's 3-0 Europa League victory over Bodo/Glimt on Thursday night.
Eddie Nketiah and Rob Holding also scored at the Emirates Stadium last night.
Vieira, who was brought in a £34 million deal from Porto, has started just one game in the Premier League this season as he competes for the midfield positions with captain Martin Odegaar.
But Cole has been impressed by the midfielder’s early performances in Europe.
“Everything he does, he’s one of those technicians where everything is with purpose,” Cole told BT Sport.
He’s one of them, an absolute velvet left foot. This kid can do anything.
“He’s got competition in Martin Odegaard, one of the club’s captains, part of the leadership group, but this guy is a fantastic player.”
