Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger claims he has always believed in Joel Campbell.
The Costa Rica international scored his first goal for Arsenal on his first Premier League start as the Gunners beat Swansea 3-0 at the Liberty Stadium.
“He had to wait, to be patient, to get a chance and he was always on the waiting list,” he told the club’s website.
“He got through a few countries but he is still very young and I never let him go as I feel he is a good player and on top of that he is a team player.
“[Against Swansea] he scored one but he could have scored more so that is something very interesting. You see when he has good players around him he is a good player.”
