 The Spanish strategist has decided to send the club’s potential player to practice.

Young talent Folarin Balogun receives great expectations from the Arsenal coaching staff. However, his immaturity in experience prevented him from finding a place in the first team and had to move to Middlesbrough on loan in January.

The decision from coach Mikel Arteta faced a lot of opposition, because a part of the fans said that Balogun has much more potential for development than Nketiah – a player who is being seen as a backup plan for Alexandre Lacazette this season. this.

 Balogun temporarily bid farewell to Arsenal.

However, according to former player Ian Wright, pushing Balogun to Middlesbrough is an extremely correct decision. Sharing on Sky Sports, he explained:

It will be a great opportunity for him.

Implant has had impressive performances at the U23 team. Obviously, the tournament at U23 is not for Balogun, he is too good for this age group. But at the same time we have seen that competing for a place in the first team is now impossible for him.

He had a chance to be in the Brentford game and a few other games but now, for him to get to a place like Middlesbrough under Chris Wilder, he has to learn, he has to learn faster when he’s playing. The tempo of the game pushes it much higher.”
