Retired Arsenal goalkeeper spoke about the Egyptian midfielder and his participation rate with the Gunners since he joined the team.

In the last few matches in the season, Elneny either watched his team from the bench or was left out of the squad. Overall, the player played 24 matches in all competetions since he moved to London and scored two goals.

When asked about his opinion regarding the young Egyptian, Seaman said: “I saw him play a few matches but it is hard to assess his potentials right now because he is not playing regularly.”

England’s former goalkeeper thinks that what is happening with Elneny now is normal given the fact that this is the player’s first experience in the English Premier League which is one of the most competitive leagues in Europe. “Players like him who come to the Premier League need some time to adapt,” he added.

Seaman pointed out that the team’s coach Arsene Wenger gives good attention to training sessions and starts with players who are performing well in those sessions. “Elneny needs to perform well in training sessions so he can get the opportunity he wants,” he explained.

“You don’t need a lot of game time to secure a spot in the line up, I know how Wenger thinks, you just need to give your best in training,” Seaman concluded.
