Mikel Arteta reacts to Charlie Patino’s Arsenal debut with fans already chanting his name
The Metro says Mikel Arteta says it was a ‘beautiful moment’ to see Charlie Patino score on his Arsenal debut in their 5-1 win over Sunderland.
The Gunners secured their spot in the Carabao Cup semi-finals as Eddie Nketiah’s hat-trick and Nicolas Pepe’s strike proved decisive.
Patino came off the bench with just 10 minutes to go and the highly-rated 18-year-old netted the fifth goal of the night in injury-time, converting from Pepe’s cross.
‘A beautiful moment. He is a kid that is coming through our system, a lovely kid,’ said Arteta.
