A Madrid 1 - 1 Arsenal - Match Report & Highlights

Aaron Ramsey Arsenal head coach Unai Emery makes big prediction amid contract talks

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone said the team's new signing Antonio Adan had "got off on the right foot" - after the new rojiblanco goalkeeper had a decisive role in his team's International Champions Cup penalty shootout victory over Arsenal in Singapore.

Arsenal released a statement from the chairman, Sir Chips Keswick, on Wednesday saying Gazidis remains fully committed to the club but reports in Italy continue to claim he is set to be appointed to a similar role at San Siro following the takeover of Milan by the United States hedge fund Elliot Management.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery gave action to new signings Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Matteo Guendouzi but it was 17-year-old Smith-Rowe who took his chance with a fine individual goal.

On Wednesday, he said Emery had convinced Arsenal's young guns that they can shine, and yesterday it seemed he took that to heart.

'This is the moment for young players to show their quality, like Emile has done today, ' he said. For me, I want him to stay with us, to work with us, to give the team the big performances with his quality.

Emery also insisted that while no-one has yet been chosen to succeed Per Mertesacker as club captain, he wishes to have "five captains" in his side for next season.

"There are lot of things I think he's done wrong". He's a very good person, a very good professional.

"It's been two or three weeks since Aaron started training, he's been in top form, working really hard, so we can see it doesn't affect him at all. Aaron has the condition to be one of the captains".

Former Real Madrid and Real Betis keeper Adan is expected to understudy first choice Jan Oblak, with Simeone telling the postgame news conference at Singapore's National Stadium that the 31-year-old was settling in very well at his new club.
