Martin Ødegaard: 25-Year-Old Arsenal Skipper Hits Back at Critics of Him Celebrating the Liverpool Victory

Martin Ødegaard: 25-Year-Old Arsenal Skipper Hits Back at Critics of Him Celebrating the Liverpool Victory

Arsenal, led by their captain Martin Ødegaard, beat current English Premier League leaders Liverpool at their home stadium of Emirates a couple of days ago, and that monumental 3-1 victory shortened the Gunners’ gap on Jürgen Klopp’s Reds to only a couple of points with 15 games remaining in the English top-flight football in 2023/2024. The win stole the headlines for the world of football the next day, but what also made the news were Arsenal skipper Martin Ødegaard’s celebration after the heavyweight matchup, as it attracted mixed reactions from others, especially those from the losing end of the clash of the titans.


What Did Martin Ødegaard Do During the Aftermath of the Arsenal-Liverpool Clash?

Arsenal managed to beat Liverpool thanks to goals from Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard that cancelled out Gabriel Magalhães’s own goal, and Martin Ødegaard was there to lead his team in celebrations. The Norwegian player even took a camera from the official photographer of Arsenal’s to capture the ecstatic moments on the club’s second home win over the Reds in the previous six trials.

Jamie Carragher’s Comments on Martin Ødegaard’s Actions

What Martin Ødegaard did during the post-match celebration of the Arsenal-Liverpool encounter in the Premier League immediately drew reaction from others, and it certainly did not sit well with football pundit and ex-Liverpool star Jamie Carragher. The 46-year-old, who spent his entire 17-year professional senior career in football at the Reds, said this out of his dissatisfaction over Martin Ødegaard: “You’ve won a game, you’ve got three points – get down the tunnel. They’ve been brilliant, back in the title race… get down the tunnel. I’m serious, honestly.”

Martin Ødegaard’s Response Towards Carragher’s Over-Celebration Claims

The 25-year-old captain for both the Norwegian national football team and Arsenal certainly was not going to apologise for claims that he had over-celebrated the Gunners‘ victory over the Reds. In regard to Carragher’s comments, Martin Ødegaard said: “No. I think everyone who loves football, who understands football, they know how much it means to win this game. We keep working hard and we prepare for the next one, but of course you have to be happy when you win. It was a massive game. We showed up. The fans were unbelievable. I think we all did this together. You see the club, how together we are, all the players, staff, supporters, everything. Brilliant to see.”

Martin Ødegaard’s words echoed Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta’s post-conference statements of that Liverpool victory. “There was a lot to play for and we went out and suffered a bit. They were attacking open spaces and that is a bad thing to concede against them. They changed their shape and we had to bring a player inside. Basically, the message was that there were going to be difficult moments and we had to navigate through those moments,” said the Spaniard.

Arteta also added: “We were ruthless when we had a chance and it feels like a big win. At the moment they [Liverpool] are probably the best team in Europe. They are in incredible team. We have come so far and now it is about doing it consistently. Liverpool have done it for six to seven years. It gives us momentum and the way we have done it, we are back on it. Really excited.”
