Walcott waits his turn
11 Oct 2006 - 17:45:57
Arsenal starlet Theo Walcott says he is content to learn from the master by training with Thierry Henry and is not concerned at a lack of first-team action.
The 17-year-old came on to score both goals in England Under-21s' 2-0 win over Germany on Tuesday evening, having made just four brief appearances as a sub for the Gunners this term.
However, Walcott is happy to bide his time and learn from watching French master Henry in training.
He said: "I'm not frustrated at all.
"When I come off the bench or when I start, I always want to make an impact. I'll play whenever, I've got plenty of time haven't I?
"I always work hard in training and show what I can do and hopefully I'll get my chance soon.
"It's best to learn from the best players and Thierry is there as the best.
"I've seen him play against top clubs, but to see him train up close is something else, when I first got there I was a bit star-struck, but I'm fine now.
"He's brilliant to train with, a top man, as all the Arsenal players are. He doesn't give me that much advice, I just watch him training."
