Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe has recently opened up about his emotional experience during the team’s first UEFA Champions League group stage match against PSV. The young player revealed that he was brought to tears by manager Mikel Arteta’s decision to substitute him into the game, which ultimately resulted in a 4-0 victory for the Gunners.

Smith Rowe expressed his pride in being given the opportunity to play in such a prestigious competition, stating that it was a significant moment for both himself and his family. However, he also acknowledged the challenges he has faced in terms of limited game time over the past two seasons. Despite feeling disappointed at times, he remains determined to persevere and continue working hard.

“Last week when I heard that in the Champions League, [it] was a really proud moment for me and my family. It’s been hard sometimes not coming on, sometimes I’ve felt disappointed. But this is life, this is football, you’ve got to keep going.” Emile Smith Rowe told CBS SPORTS.

Arteta’s decision to bring Smith Rowe on during the Champions League match highlights the manager’s faith in the young midfielder’s abilities. With Arsenal currently sitting in fifth place on the Premier League table with 14 points, Arteta has a wealth of options at his disposal. This has made it difficult for Smith Rowe to secure regular playing time.

In their most recent fixture, Arsenal secured a 1-0 victory over Brentford in the Carabao Cup third round, advancing to the next stage of the competition and Emile Smith Rowe started that game. Their upcoming Premier League match will see them face Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

As Smith Rowe continues to impress with his performances and dedication, it is likely that he will earn more opportunities under Arteta’s guidance. The midfielder’s emotional reaction serves as a testament to his passion for the game and his determination to succeed at Arsenal.

 

I enjoy football so much and I am in love with Arsenal Football Club. I always watch the matches and will always give you my opinions about the game here.
