Amidst a flurry of media attention, Ben White’s agent, Alexander Levack, has issued a heartfelt plea for compassion towards the Arsenal defender. 

Levack took to LinkedIn to address what he described as a barrage of negative scrutiny directed at his client, urging football fans to consider the human aspect behind the headlines.

White’s standout performance on Tuesday night, where he netted twice in Arsenal’s commanding 5-0 victory over Chelsea, should have been cause for celebration. However, the 26-year-old’s achievements on the pitch have been overshadowed by off-field distractions, including his absence from the international stage with England.

In his LinkedIn post, Levack emphasised White’s resilience in the face of adversity, highlighting the toll that relentless media scrutiny can take on elite athletes. He urged people to exercise empathy and refrain from hasty judgments, regardless of their public profile.

Levack wrote: “I feel compelled to write this today after such a great performance last night, and all season for that matter, from client Ben White. For the past 4 weeks Ben has been in the press and media a great deal in that time with a large percentage of that being negative.

“Whilst I appreciate that Ben is in the public eye which brings it’s own connotations and leaves you open to criticism I wanted to make the point that every elite performer, whichever field that may be, is a human being who has the same feeling we all have and experience good and bad. 


“No one knows what is actually going on in one’s life so I really believe people should think before making a judgement or criticising these elite performers in public.”

He added: “Ben has an incredible temperament and attitude which allows him the ability to navigate through his working and personal life. I suppose the main message is be kind to people as you do not have the full facts, which in Ben’s case neither Ben nor I wish to vocalise publicly, and do not know what is going on in peoples personal lives so again please be kind.”

White’s journey at Arsenal has been marked by both triumphs and challenges. Despite signing a new long-term contract with the club in March and achieving a career-high in goals scored this season, he has faced criticism and speculation, particularly regarding his international availability.

While White’s absence from recent England squads has raised eyebrows, England manager Gareth Southgate has left the door open for his return. Southgate acknowledged the complexities surrounding White’s situation and expressed his willingness to welcome him back into the fold when the time is right.
