Arsenal fans are gushing over 26-year-old defender Carl Jenkinson

Few players at Arsenal have had it tougher than Carl Jenkinson. Despite all of his efforts, the defender has never really been able to force his way into the first team at the Emirates. He’s had good moments, and he’s clearly a hard worker, but often for one reason or another, it just hasn’t happened for him.

It’s a shame, as he’s clearly an Arsenal man through and through, yet even a managerial change hasn’t been able to change things for him.
