‘Lovey footballer, I admired him’ – Gary Lineker wows about this Arsenal star after Burnley win
BBC pundit Gary Lineker took to social media to share his reaction to the performance of one of Arsenal’s midfielders in the 2-1 win over Burnley on Saturday afternoon.
The Gunners were in action on Saturday after opening their season with a narrow victory over Newcastle United last weekend, courtesy of a goal from Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang in the second half of the game.
Burnley have always been a tough opponent for Arsenal, even though Unai Emery’s men did the double over them in the Premier League last season.
The Clarets gave the Gunners a tough test once again on Saturday, but thanks to a wonderful performance from summer loan signing Dani Ceballos, Arsenal found a way to secure a 2-1 win.
And after watching the Spaniard make his competitive debut at the Emirates stadium, Gary Lineker had praises for him on social media.
Ceballos is a lovey footballer. Admired him at Betis and wondered why it hasn’t really happened for him at Real Madrid.
