Calum Chambers says working with Arsene Wenger has helped him ‘improve massively’ since joining Arsenal.
The defender moved to the Emirates from Southampton last year but the 20-year-old has had to be patient as he attempts to establish himself in Wenger’s first XI.
Chambers can play at right-back or centre-half but Hector Bellerin and Gabriel appear to have moved above the England Under-21 international in Wenger’s pecking order.
Chambers, though, has praised the impact Wenger has had on his game.
“He’s improved me massively,” the defender told the Arsenal Weekly podcast. “Over the past year I think I’ve improved in my game a lot. He goes through little things with me on the pitch and individual stuff.
“He gives me advice so over the past year my game has improved massively.
“I’d probably say the best piece of advice the boss has given me is just to relax and enjoy myself in games.
“Before the game or at half-time he would tell me to relax, to just play with confidence and enjoy it.
“I probably think that’s the best advice he’s given me because it helped me in my game. I can then relax, go onto the pitch and express myself which is useful.”
