Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has described the save made by Aaron Ramsdale as one of the saves of the season so far. After earning a lot of doubters to start the season, Ramsdale has come into his own in recent games. The young English keeper put on a man-of-the-match performance in the 2-0 win at the King Power Stadium. He made a number of brilliant saves including one from a James Madison free-kick which was a sight to behold.
“My reaction when I saw the ball leaving Maddison’s foot was ‘goal’. I don’t know how it happened, it was incredible, and the timing of it was crucial.” Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said about the Aaron Ramsdale save. “We invest money in talent and people we believe can be great for the future of the club. We make that decision based on that. Aaron has had some encouraging performances, today he made some incredible saves. He needs to continue to do that. In football, you need to play 50 games for 20 years, and this is only the start.”
“It’s incredible [the save]. When I was watching it I said goal once, goal twice, and he saved them both, those actions are very necessary if you want to have momentum and consistency in results, and we are getting a lot of them,” he added. “I think when you dream big, it’s always positive. Keep your feet on the earth. He needs to be doing what he’s doing every day, trains the way he does, work as hard as he does and look after himself, have the mentality he has, and good performances, and the rest will come.”
