Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny has revealed that he has been instructed by Arsene Wenger to take less shots at goal since arriving at the club.
The Egyptian has become a regular in the Gunners’ starting eleven after completing a move to the Emirates stadium from Basel in January.
But Elneny, who scored most of his goals from long-range during his time in Switzerland, has admitted that Wenger’s passing style of play has changed him.
“I used to shoot a lot when I was at Basel but sometimes that doesn’t suit our style here,” Elneny said in an interview with the May edition of Arsenal Magazine.
“[Wenger] taught me to be more of a team player and to be intelligent in terms of when I shoot. I also paid attention to my teammates and took their advice. That has helped me to improve my performances already.”
