Brighton vs Arsenal: Leno lied about me – Arteta hits back

Mikel Arteta, Arsenal’s manager, has stated that he spoke to Bernd Leno about his loss of the No. 1 goalkeeper job to Aaron Ramsdale.

Arteta advised the goalkeeper to focus on reclaiming his starting spot.

Leno hasn’t played in the Premier League since August 28.

“There was no clear explanation why I was out, but it had nothing to do with my performance,” he said in an interview this week.

Ramsdale, who arrived in a £30 million deal from Sheffield United this summer, has quickly established himself as the side’s first choice, starting in all three subsequent league wins over Norwich City, Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur.

However, when asked about Leno’s comments ahead of Saturday’s trip to Brighton and Hove Albion, Arteta said: “I had a very clear conversation with him 48 hours before I was going to make the decision. Obviously any conversation I have with him is completely private and I’m not going to speak with any media about it.

“[I expect from him] the same that he’s done every single day. Train the way he does, be the way he is, the person he is, the way he handles himself, and try to help the other keepers and the other keepers try to help him.”
