Lethal Lanzini reckons he was lucky

Give Manu a free role against the Gooners

Manu Lanzini’s amazing goal against Udinese on Saturday was one of those magic moments he has given us in the past,

Similar to the memorable effort against Spurs a couple of seasons back, it may not have been important but a worldy nonetheless.

As the ball broke to him following a half clearance from a half clearance he thundered the ball into the back of the net seemingly without a moment’s hesitation.

It’s probably fair to say that the midfielder hasn’t been at his very best over the season but the quality this guy possesses shone through in that magic moment and we of course wait for more of the same at premier League level.

It was one of those lethal efforts which takes the breath away and excited hiowever long one may have been watching this game of ours.

But afterwards the humble Argentinian played down his effort declaring: ” For my goal, I saw the opportunity to shoot, so I shoot and I think it was a little bit lucky!

I try to do this and when I see the moment to shoot, I shoot, and luckily for me it was a goal.

I work hard to be able to do this. In training, I practice and that’s very important, both for us and for young players who are trying to learn new skills like this.

Practice is important and that’s it. You have to practice in training, but also in games you need to not be afraid to try it.”
