Speaking of Highbury Squad YouTube channelKevin Campbell has spoken out about Cedric Soares and his recent performances for Arsenal.
The Portuguese full-back has replaced the injured Takehiro Tomiyasu in recent weeks and has done an excellent job.
Indeed Arsenal have tightened their grip on fourth place in the Premier League since Cedric came in and he has hardly made a mistake.
Though impressed with Cedric, Campbell says he will be dropped once Tomiyasu is back in action.
what was said
Campbell commented on Cedric.
“No disrespect to Cedric, I think Cedric was excellent, he exceeded my expectations in this team and he did a really good job but Tomiyasu is our number one, it’s similar to when Tavares came in earlier this season and Tierney came back as number one,” Campbell said.
know your role
Cedric has done a better job than many expected in recent weeks but with Tomiyasu’s return he needs to know his role and return to the bench.
The Japan international has not lost his place through poor performances, injuries have kept him out so far and once he returns Arsenal will be better off with him in the starting XI.
That’s not to say Cedric will never be able to become a regular, but given Tomiyasu’s brilliant form early in the season, leaving the summer signing on the bench is hard to justify.
In other news, the club, who are debating the Everton heist for £21million star Harry Redknapp, claim ‘can’t run’.
