I'm still learning - Chamberlain

BY foxsports • November 10, 2011

The 18-year-old, who is set to feature for England's Under 21s against Iceland on Thursday, has been tipped for a senior call-up after catching the eye of Fabio Capello. Oxlade-Chamberlain has made only four appearances for Arsenal this season as Wenger looks to bed the youngster into the team. The former Southampton ace admits he is working hard to impress Wenger, but he trusts the Frenchman's judgement in developing him as a player. "I think there's a lot more to come from me so I am just going to keep working hard, keep learning in training and get some more appearances to do well," Oxlade-Chamberlain told Arsenal Player. "It's down to me at the end of the day, I've got to put pressure on the boss to select me. I can only do that by training well and, when I do get my chance, impress him. The boss has said it's up to me, he's going to work with me the same way I have to with him. "It's a work in progress and I don't think there's any need to rush into things. I trust the boss and he's going to develop me in the same way." Oxlade-Chamberlain added: "I knew that when I signed here it would be hard for me. "I was playing more week-in week-out at Southampton and I knew that maybe in my first season I wouldn't get a lot of game time. "But I'm learning so much in training from the likes of Robin van Persie and the rest of the boys - and the manager as well. I've only had a few appearances but I've scored two goals and I'm happy with that."
