Emile Smith Rowe, an Arsenal midfielder, has revealed why he chose the Gunners over Tottenham Hotspur.
Smith Rowe said he turned down a move to Tottenham Hotspur as a child because he was never interested in the club.
Smith Rowe has been in excellent form for Arsenal this season, scoring four goals and assisting on two occasions in eleven Premier League appearances.
Last Sunday, the 21-year-old midfielder scored the game-winning goal in Arsenal’s 1-0 triumph against Watford at Emirates Stadium.
His goal against Watford moved Arsenal to the fifth position on the Premier League table with 20 points from 11 games and Ferdinand believes that the England youngster has already proven how important he is to Mikel Arteta’s side.
“Tottenham wanted me when I was 15 or 16, but, as an Arsenal fan, I was never interested,” Smith Rowe was quoted by Metro UK as saying.
“I joined Arsenal at 10 and I was determined to make the grade at my club.”
