Ben White pulls off outrageous Zinedine Zidane-like roulette spin against Luton Town

Ben White pulls off outrageous Zinedine Zidane-like roulette spin against Luton Town

Arsenal's number four pulled off a superb piece of skill in Wednesday's Premier League clash.

Ben White executed a near-perfect roulette turn during Wednesday night's Premier League between Arsenal and Luton Town, with fans describing the skill as Zinedine Zidane-esque.

The 26-year-old defender, who recently made headlines after turning down a call-up to play for England, isn't exactly known for his ability to weave his way out of trouble with a moment of brilliance.

But he delivered at the Emirates earlier with a cracking piece of skill.

As you can see from the footage below, White wrong-footed Luton defender Alfie Doughty with a roulette turn before passing to Reiss Nelson – a moment that brought plenty of "oooos" from those in attendance.

"Look at that from Ben White," said TNT Sports commentator Ian Darke, before Robbie Savage gave his approval in the gantry.

Here's how fans on social media reacted to White's moment of brilliance.

One said: "I’ve lost words for Ben White man. Incredible player. So so underrated," while another commented: "Arsenal fans don’t hype Ben White enough. This guy is not normal."

A third wrote: "When I watch Ben White play football, I smile at how easy he makes the game look."

A fourth commented: "Shout out to Ben White's quick feet there," while a fifth added: "Ben White got bored and decided to go Zidane mode."

As mentioned earlier, White's decision to snub an England call-up made headlines last month.

Arsenal teammate Declan Rice said he would try and convince the former Brighton defender to reconsider his decision – and even revealed plans to speak on their return to North London.

Speaking in a press conference alongside Gareth Southgate, Rice said: “I think the biggest thing is it’s Ben’s life, it’s Ben’s decision."

He added: “Obviously people are going to have opinions, people are going to write stuff about it but ultimately he’s content with his decision. We had a few days off before we came here so I’m sure Gareth and him spoke in that period. So I don’t know the ins and outs of it.

“But all I can say is that I would love him to be here. Playing against him and now playing with him, seeing how he is … he is very quiet, keeps himself to himself but when he’s on the pitch, he’d do anything for his team to win."
