Kieran Tierney is fastest player at Arsenal by hitting over 23mph ahead of Aubameyang, reveals Jack Wilshere


ARSENAL defender Kieran Tierney is the fastest player at the club over captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, says former midfielder Jack Wilshere.

Free agent Wilshere is back at his former club to regain fitness, in hope of continuing his playing career at a decent level.

The midfielder is also working on his coaching at the club.

Wilshere has admitted that since returning to Arsenal, he was surprised to learn club captain Aubameyang isn’t the fastest player.

It is, in fact, Scotland international Tierney who clocks in the fastest speed at the club.

And Wilshere has backed ‘natural leader’ Tierney to captain the Gunners in the future

Wilshere told talkSPORT: “He’s not been there the last few weeks, he’s been away with Scotland, but everyone has spoken about him being a great lad, a natural leader, so potentially yea [the next captain].

“We were doing a sprint test today and I asked the fitness guy ‘who is the fastest player, is it Aubameyang’ and he said ‘no it’s Kieran Tierney’ – it surprised me.”


According to STATSport on Twitter, Tierney has clocked in a speed of 23mph.

Summer signing Martin Odegaard thinks the opposite to Wilshere, and says Aubameyang is the fastest at Arsenal.

He said: “I would say Aubameyang, I think he’s the fastest player in the team, and I don’t see any other players being on his level.

“It is difficult to be faster than him I think.”

But the Norway international did give Tierney a special mention as someone who could give the captain a run for his money.

He continued: “I don’t think I stand a chance, but some of the other players maybe, Kieran Tierney said he might beat him, but I don’t know, we’ll have to see.”
