West Brom Retains Confidence In Arsenal Starlet

Reports are out claiming that West Brom coach Ben Garner insists they haven’t lost faith in on-loan Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry.

The 20-year-old has not started a single Premier League match this season while his one and only top flight appearance was against Chelsea in August.

“I had a couple of chats with Serge when I came in because we played against him with the youth team I had at Crystal Palace when he was at Arsenal,” Garner told the Birmingham Mail.

“He’s a phenomenal talent.

“I’ve seen him play for Germany and obviously he had a great spell in the Arsenal first team.

“I think for him it’s an adjustment to a different style of play and a different culture to what he’s used to at Arsenal and his national team.

“They are used to having 60/65 per cent possession of the ball.

“At a Premier League club of our size you’re not going to have that as much.

“It’s adapting and understanding what he’s got to do without possession and functioning as part of a defensive unit.

“That’s really the learning curve for Serge.”
