Why Arteta made Ramsdale the first choice ahead of Leno

So far this season, Aaron Ramsdale, the summer addition, has established himself as Arsenal’s first choice goalkeeper, a decision taken by manager Mikel Arteta.

Last season, Bernd Leno was Arsenal’s first choice ahead of Emi Martinez, but he made numerous errors that the Spanish manager seemed to find inexcusable.

This could explain why Arsenal signed Mikel Arteta, a teenage goalkeeper from Sheffield United, in the summer, oblivious to the fact that he would go on to become the club’s number one.

After becoming the club’s number one stopper, experts have discovered that goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale appears to be outperforming Gunners colleague Bernd Leno in the shot-stopping department.

“What I said to the goalkeepers in the last two or three years is that we don’t want to do that,” the Spaniard remarked in September (make assurances).

“We want to empower performance and ask them to train, behave, and play as well as they can.” How can I ensure that someone will accomplish something? It wouldn’t make sense given what we’re asking of them.”

Former Arsenal striker Alan Smith, though, has suggested that Bernd Leno may attempt to leave the club in the January transfer window.
