Arsenal defender, Shkodran Mustafi, has heaped praise on Folarin Balogun after scoring his first goal for the first team in Europa League win against Molde.
The teenage striker scored to lift arsenal into a 3-0 win against Molde from his first touches of the ball to set his goal account for the senior team.
“He’s a very hardworking and intelligent boy who’s hungry too.” Mustafi told Arsenal official website.
He said he know the feeling starting as young boy and how difficult it is to come to the first team and keep up with the form you have with the youth team, he said if he keep up with this form, it’s a sign for a better future.
“I think at this age as a striker you can always have that hunger to score and always want to do something in the box, and I think for him it was really nice. He came in the last game as well and this time it was his first touch he scored with, so I’m so excited for him because I think this is something that is very important.
