Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has praised goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.
After a shocking start to the season (three straight defeats and no goals), Arsenal took their first win of the season and beat Norwich City 1-0 in the Emirates.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the only goal in the second half when the Gunners took all three points against the Canaries.
Arteta made several changes to the site. He picked Ramsdale for that summer game over Bernd Leno and the 23-year-old impressed.
The Arsenal manager has been deeply impressed and spoken about the former Sheffield United goalkeeper. Corresponding Reports from BBC Sport, the deal for Ramsdale, 23, is valued at $ 24 million.
Arteta suggested after the game that Ramsdale was just great yesterday and his energy and body language throughout the game was impressive.
“I think he was great. Not just what he’s done on the technical side, it’s what he’s transmitting, it’s his energy. His chemistry with the backline, how he reacts, I think it’s great. ” said Arteta, quoted by football.london.
“We have two fantastic goalkeepers. Never forget what Bernd did for us and what a good goalkeeper he is. I had decisions to make today and I thought Aaron would be the right one. As in any other position, we had to choose and that was decided today. “
Leno is a very good goalkeeper but there was speculation in the media about his future this summer. Arsenal, on the other hand, spent a lot of money on Ramsdale with the idea that it would become their first choice in the years to come.
Right now, Arsenal desperately need points on the board and Arteta should pick players who are consistent. Ramsdale can expect to play in the next few games, at least after yesterday’s brilliant performance.
