Watch Oleksandr Zinchenko ‘put Arsenal squad to shame’ with incredible keep-up technique in training


ARSENAL new boy Oleksandr Zinchenko stood out in one training drill thanks to his amazing keep-up skills.

The Ukrainian along with the rest of the Gunners squad lined up next to each other for a kick-ups race to see who could juggle the ball while moving forward the fastest.

The 25-year-old blitzed his teammates powering away at some speed making keeping the ball off the ground look effortless.

While many players moved slowly keeping control of the ball with little touches, Zinchenko sprinted away with big kicks.

Fans could not believe what they saw and reacted online: “Zinchenko’s technique putting the rest of the squad to shame.”

Another said: “He’s actually a machine.”

More fans responded saying: “I’m convinced he is Brazilian” and “Zinchinho”.

The video shows both Gabriel Magalhaes and back-up goalkeeper Matt Turner have to start again after failing to keep the ball up.

The video also saw Granit Xhaka fail to stay in control of the ball to fan’s entertainment.

A supporter joked: “Xhaka can’t do it.”


Others highlighted good performances in the race from Takehiro Tomiyasu, Eddie Nketiah and Martin Odegaard.

Zinchenko is quickly becoming a popular figure with the Arsenal faithful following his £35million move for Manchester City.

So far he is being used as a left-back by Mikel Arteta although he could be used as a central midfielder in the future.
