BEN WHITE has revealed young children told him ‘You’re s***’ after his £50million move to Arsenal.
The Gunners signed the England defender from Brighton last summer.
On Prime Video’s All or Nothing Arsenal series, White revealed he took a stick immediately after the transfer.
He said: “I have some little kids who absolutely give me Stacks, they robbed me straight away.
“They were like ‘£50m? You’re shit.”
White, 24, also revealed how he got into football despite his father not being in love with the beautiful game.
He added: “It’s weird because my family doesn’t like football.
“You’ve never played it before. dad hates it He would never, ever watch a game.
“Actually, it was someone my mom used to cut hair for [who got me playing]. She came into the garden with me and went in goal and I fired the ball at her.
“That’s actually where it all started.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been as talented as ‘extraordinary.’ I just worked so much harder than everyone else.”
White went on to admit that he’s matured over the past few years.
He explained: “You can’t slip at a club this big, you can’t have bad days.
“Mentally it’s tough. I have high standards. I don’t need anyone to tell me if I haven’t done so well, I know that.”
“I used to be very up and down emotionally, but growing up I think I’m at a level where I can be okay with whatever happens.”
White made 37 appearances in all competitions in his debut season at the Emirates, mostly in central defense alongside Gabriel Magalhaes.
He started Friday night’s Prem opener at right-back in place of the injured Takehiro Tomiyasu – while William Saliba stepped in at center-back in the 2-0 win at Crystal Palace.
