Forgotten Arsenal man finally living up to Mikel Arteta's prediction ahead of summer talks


Discussing his recent renaissance in Rotterdam Nelson told The Athletic: “Coming through the ranks [at Arsenal], I was — not fearless — but I just didn’t care how many training sessions I would do outside of Arsenal. I didn’t really care what I was eating. I was maybe staying up too late and I was just doing a lot of different stuff. But now, I actually need those extra hours to recover.

“At the start, I hated going to the gym just to do little stretches. Now I literally have to come in earlier to do 15 minutes of stretching, then come back in after training to do extra bits on my groin or my hamstrings.

“Those extra little bits are probably the main factor of why my season went from not really playing, being on the bench, getting injured, to now being in the team and striving for more in the [Conference League] final. Just because of that little bit extra I’ve been putting in behind the scenes, which is a blessing. I need to just keep doing that and hopefully just keep elevating.”
