“I am really impressed with Feyenoord“ – Arsenal forward on his time on loan

Arsenal star Reiss Nelson says he’s learning about the slower part of the game during his loan stint with Feyenoord this season.

He joined the Dutch outfit on loan in the summer transfer window when it was made clear he wasn’t a part of Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta’s plans this season.

The Englishman had something of a turbulent start to life at De Kuip, with him barely featuring at the beginning of the term because of injury and then concerns about his fitness.

Nelson’s been slowly turning things around, but, acting as a substitute in both the Europa Conference and the Eredivisie.

The player’s minutes have been increasing match by match, with two 23 minute appearances against Twente and PEC Zwolle in the last two games.

And now, the England youth international insists he’s learning plenty regardless of his lack of regular first-team football.

“In the months that I am here, I am really impressed with Feyenoord,“ FR 12 report Reiss saying to Hand in Hand.

“I knew the name Feyenoord when I came to De Kuip, of course, and I also knew that the game against AZ was a bit loaded.

“I thought it was fantastic to come on in a packed stadium with a great atmosphere. When Dessers scored, we all went crazy.”

“When I compare English football with Dutch football, I see that in England, it’s more about running and switching quickly. The pace of the matches is higher. Here it is more about tactics, I notice.”
