Aston Villa player claims around £ 25million for Arsenal man
Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings told his England press conference Tuesday Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney has shown “every week” how good he is.
England face Scotland on Friday night at Wembley, with a few players from Aston Villa and Arsenal hoping to feature.
Tierney missed Scotland’s opening Euro 2020 defeat to the Czech Republic last time around, while Mings produced an outstanding performance in defense as the Three Lions beat Croatia.
And ahead of that clash, Mings shared those thoughts on the Arsenal player and how he doesn’t want to be “disrespectful” to the player who could replace him if he is injured again.
“I think he’s shown it every week, how good he is and an offensive threat he is,” Mings said. “Very often as a left-back or left-center-back, regardless of the player he’s playing in.
“These are positions in modern football that are so important in attack and defense that if he plays there is one that we will need to be aware of.
“There are pros and cons to everything. If we play and win the game, people will say “it’s because Kieran Tierney didn’t play”. But he’s a fantastic player.
“Definitely for us, whether he’s playing or not. We will prepare for both eventualities. But I don’t want to disrespect anyone who will play in his place by saying that they will be weaker if they don’t play.
Arsenal fans will no doubt be interested if their £ 25million player (Celestial sport) indeed begins against England on Friday.
While Scotland does not have the quality or depth of the biggest nations at Euro 2020, it does have a left side that many nations would dream of.
Liverpool’s Andy Robertson teaming up with Tierney is a partnership and it’s a partnership the Three Lions should be wary of.
Mings is expected to return to his country, and if he does, then he will have to face many dangerous and potentially marked crossovers as Tierney and Robertson will attempt to go for it.
