Former Arsenal academy director Andries Jonker has advised young players to avoid signing for the Gunners, or any other English team.

“I have serious doubts if young talent are making the right step if they go to England at this moment. I would advise them not to go, but to play 100 games in first-team football on the continent first,” he told the Mirror.
“Young players in England, who have huge w88 Live Casino

“So Jadon Sancho went from Man City to Borussia Dortmund – and he is a sensation there. Reiss Nelson, of Arsenal, is choosing the same route. He is getting plenty of chances and minutes at Hoffenheim.”
