Calum Chambers: Why I’m so grateful to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger

Calum Chambers thanks Arsene Wenger for showing faith in him at Arsenal this season

Calum Chambers has thanked Arsene Wenger for the faith he has shown in him since his transfer to Arsenal from Southampton last summer.

The defender has been a regular fixture in the Gunners’ first-team since his £16m move to the north London club back in July.

The 20-year-old has netted one goal and made one assist in 23 Premier League games for the Gunners so far this term.

He gives everyone a chance and he gets the best out of all the players

And Chambers has spoken of his admiration for Arsenal boss Wenger after the Frenchman gave the youngster regular chances to impress at Emirates Stadium.

Speaking to Arsenal Player, Chambers said: “He’s been fantastic to me – really supportive and he’s given me an opportunity to show everyone what I can do and opportunities to play games. I’m very grateful for what he’s done for me.

“Everyone has expectations on things but he’s exceeded all expectations that I had. He has been amazing for me and I can’t thank him enough.

“I think he’s very thoughtful in everything he does. He gives everyone a chance and he gets the best out of all the players, which is a very good quality to have.”
