    Martin Odegaard says he is still adjusting to having a camera crew documenting Arsenal’s season while he has once again hit out at the Spanish press over his Real Madrid exit.

    The Gunners have made their worst start to a new season for 67 years, losing their first three matches and sitting bottom of the Premier League on -9 goal difference after getting well beaten by champions Manchester City at the weekend.

    To make matters worse, Arsenal’s disastrous start is being filmed by Amazon for the latest series of ‘All or Nothing’.

    Manager Mikel Arteta previously revealed that he was given no say in the decision to invite cameras into the Gunners’ dressing room and Odegaard admits it is quite hard to get used to.

    Asked about the documentary, the Norwegian revealed at a press conference on Tuesday: ‘I must admit that it’s not my favourite thing to have cameras everywhere.

    ‘You automatically think a bit more about what you are saying when there are cameras there, but the crew is discreet.’

    Speaking about the Amazon series, Arteta said: ‘That’s a decision made from the club and it’s with the best possible interests of the football club. We need to help as much as possible.

    ‘I experienced that a few years ago when I was at Man City. We’re going to help as much as possible to help everybody see what this club means; how things are done at the football club and to be as transparent as we can to show the values, integrity and the passions and where we are trying to drive this football club.

    ‘Hopefully, it’s a perfect year to show that. We need to make that happen. It’s down to us to produce the best piece that we can so everybody can feel part of what we do and our fans can be proud of what we do.’

    Odegaard, meanwhile, continues to be unhappy with the way he was portrayed by the Spanish press prior to his departure from Real Madrid over the summer and insists he is delighted to have joined Arsenal.

    He continued: ‘Absolutely everything that has been reported about me in Spanish media is wrong.

    ‘I am so happy to be back in Arsenal. I loved it here from the first day I came in January.

    ‘I wanted stability. I wanted to settle down somewhere with a lot of good players who want to establish the club back in the top, with a good manager. That’s why I think Arsenal is pretty perfect for me.’
