In-form Arsenal star has revealed to the public the reason for his recent good fortunes in front of goal ahead of the Gunner’s weekend clash against Watford.
Arsenal and England striker Theo Walcott insists his recent blistering form for both Arsenal and the Three Lions side has been due to coach advices and tips from former teammate and Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, who is at Arsenal currently coaching the Under-18s.
Walcott said: “Having Thierry at the club now, I have been chatting to him on a personal level behind the scenes to learn things from him.
“He’s with the under-18s and, at times, I think some of them don’t even know who he is! I’ve had quite a few words with him about some of the games I’ve played.
“He has just given me his analysis on myself and, if I’ve needed to ask him some questions about it, he’s always there. That’s what coaches are there for.
“I think, sometimes, you see this generation of players, they’re actually scared to go up to coaches and ask something.
The 26-year-old England international also added that manager Arsene Wenger played a key role in his recent goal form, after the boss told him to more ‘aggressive on the pitch’.
“Going back to the question about when it clicked about going up front, that was one of the things Arsene wanted me to do – to be more aggressive on the pitch.
“And maybe he’s sensed that I’ve had more aggression.”
Walcott has scored seven goals in his last ten games for Arsenal and England and looks very sharp ahead of the Gunner’s clash against Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday.
