At 15 years and 181 days old, he is the Premier League’s youngest player. Ethan came off the bench with his team leading 3-0.
He received a glorious chant from the Arsenal faithful at the end of the game, singing “He’s got school tomorrow.”
Nwaneri has been compared to City and England midfielder Foden by United legend Ferdinand. He stated on his YouTube channel:
“There’s no doubting this kid’s ability. I’ve heard from coaches that are at the club and from various different people in the game at that level that there aren’t many 15-year-olds in the last 10 or so years that have got the ability that this guy’s shown on a consistent basis.”
“We are talking the Fodens of this world. At 15, he’s at a similar level they’re talking.”
