There’s no denying of the fact that Rob Holding is one of the best upcoming talents in England, better than many other players of his age. But the claim becomes even more concrete with validation from the player himself.
Holding was warming up before the big game against Stoke City last Saturday when a fan from the stands called out for his attention and declared him to be better than young Manchester City defender John Stones.
The reaction? Holding could only laugh before a quick nod, as if giving his approval.
The 21-year old has impressed everyone with his explosive debut for the Gunners followed by a series of fine performances recently.
