Gary Neville claims Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe is ‘more clinical’ than Cristiano Ronaldo at the same age

Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe, according to Gary Neville, is’more clinical’ than Cristiano Ronaldo was at the same age.

Smith Rowe, who joined Arsenal’s academy at the age of ten, has established himself as a vital role under Mikel Arteta and took over the No.10 shirt after Mesut Ozil’s departure earlier this year.

Arsenal has had a bad start to the season, losing their first three Premier League games, but Smith Rowe’s performances have been one of the few bright spots in Arteta’s squad.


The Arsenal midfielder, who is 21 years old, has scored two Premier League goals so far this season, according to Neville.

Cristiano was the first person I ever heard express he aspired to be the best player in the world,’ says the author. Sky Sports quoted Neville as saying.

‘It’s rare to hear a player express anything like that since everyone talks about the team and the collective.’ It’s refreshing to hear Mo Salah say it.

‘I believe you can say these things when you deliver, and these two have constantly delivered.’

‘Ronaldo has been with us for 10, 15 years, and Mo Salah has been with us for five, six years, and beyond. They are completely lethal. They are harsh and clinical in their approach.
