Gedion Zelalem is enjoying being part of Arsenal’s squad.
Zelalem was a popular figure during Arsenal’s trip to New York, having spent seven years of his childhood in the States.
The teenager admits it was a “dream come true” to play against Gunners legend Thierry Henry.
“There’s been a lot of support from the fans which was good,” said Zelalem to arsenal.com.
“We haven’t been to New York before so going there was reality nice.
“At the moment I’m just trying to break into the Arsenal first team. I’m just trying to play football at Arsenal.
“I watched him [Thierry Henry] when he was in his prime and to play against was great – another dream come true.”
