Jack Wilshere lauds ‘unplayable’ Ethan Nwaneri, 15, after watching Arsenal wonderkid net twice against Man Utd

JACK WILSHERE has heaped praise on Arsenal’s rising star Ethan Nwaneri.

The 15-year-old was watched by Wilshere during an under-18s game against Manchester United.

Ethan Nwaneri became the youngest Premier League player of all time when he played against Brentford

The former England midfielder is the current coach of the side and he was left impressed with Nwaneri as he netted twice in the 3-3 draw.

The young midfielder has already made his Premier League debut, coming off the bench in the Gunners’ 3-0 win at Brentford.

That made him the the youngest Premier League player of all time, aged only 15 years and 181 days.

But he has not let the appearance go to his head and is continuing to play well and starred in the game against the young Red Devils.

Wilshere said: “In the first half, he tried to find the spaces, playing in people’s backs and creating space for himself, and we couldn’t find him a little bit.

“In the second half, he was very good. He was unplayable at times. He had a few good moments.

“In the second half a lot of players stepped up a level, we found some more space.

“We spoke to them a little bit at half-time about a few tactical things which allowed Ethan to get free.

“We had a really good balance in the team and Ethan was good in the second half.”

Nwaneri has been playing throughout the age groups at Arsenal and has appeared in the Premier League 2, EFL Cup and the Under 18s.

His abilities have also attracted interest from England as he has turned out for the under-17 side six times, scoring three goals.
