Sead Kolasinac scored his first goal for the Gunners in the Community Shield against Chelsea, Arsenal went on to win the trophy on penalties, but that goal wasn’t what has impressed Theo Walcott the most about his new teammate.
Honestly, he’s an absolute animal. He’s incredible. I see him in the gym every day. You can just tell he looks after himself well. He eats the right food and he’s professional
the England international told reporters about Kolasinac, Arsenal’s first signing this summer, at the very beginning of it.
You can see the power he’s got when he’s got the ball, his pace and everything. It’s beautiful to watch and he’s a great addition to the squad
Walcott then said, before praising the Bosnia and Herzegovina international even more.
Trust me, he’s not easy to get around — he’s quite wide as well. He fits perfectly for the Premier League, he’s absolutely perfect. He’s going to show something different. I’ve seen glimpses of him in pre-season and he’s going to get fitter, stronger and quicker. This league is the best and I think he could be one of the best in this league. He looks an absolute tank
the 28-year-old winger said.
