Arsenal fans were disappointed in Charlie Patino not making the club’s starting lineup in the EFL Cup squad against AFC Wimbledon on Wednesday night. Going into last night’s game, there was a lot of talk about what type of line-up the manager would select. And the 17-year-old was someone Arsenal fans were looking forward to seeing in action on the senior stage.
The manager's decision to leave out the youngster really made Arsenal fans unhappy and some even criticized him. Despite that the Arsenal was facing off against a League one club, many were hoping that it would open the chance for Mikel Arteta to give some youngsters time to prove themselves.
But the fact remains that, during his time at the Emirates, Arteta has given a number of youngsters like Emile Smith Rowe and Eddie Nketiah the chance, to prove themselves and a youngster like Patino should just continue to put his name up in lights and that knock will come one day because Arteta has always had that mentality of bringing up them. They are the future of Arsenal after Alexandre Luccazzete and Aubameyang time comes to an end.
