‘Kieran Tierney started for the Gunners for the fifth time in their Europa League clash with Bodo/Glimt on Thursday night’
Arsenal legend, Martin Keown has said he feels for Kieran Tierney at the club, suggesting the player could be growing frustrated at the Emirates Stadium.
Keown feels that Arsenal are ‘not completely meeting the player’s needs’ in terms of game-time.
The defender started for the Gunners for the fifth time in their Europa League clash with Bodo/Glimt on Thursday night.
The Scot has now started both of Arsenal’s European games this season but has started just three of their eight league fixtures..
“I feel sorry for him,” Keown told BT Sport after Arsenal cruised past Bodo/Glimt. He’s a high-calibre player and he comes on in every game.
“But obviously, you’re not completely meeting his needs. It shows you the quality and strength of the squad when he’s not starting. You want to have that competition and the level gets higher.”
