Arsenal correspondent Charles Watts has claimed that Aaron Ramsdale has really impressed everyone at the club on and off the pitch so far.
However, in a short space of time, the Englishman has already claimed the number-one spot from Bernd Leno with a number of great performances.
This weekend, he made headlines again as Arsenal recorded a 2-0 win over Leicester City in the Premier League. Ramsdale’s save from a James Maddison free-kick was a particular highlight from the match.
Now, while talking on his YouTube channel, Watts has explained how the 24-year-old’s ‘infectious’ personality has impressed many within the club.
He said: “At full time, he turned around, he’s banging his Arsenal badge, he was bowing down to them, just giving it back to them. And I just love that character about him.
“That’s what he’s brought into the team since he’s arrived. He is just this really infectious sort of character.
“Everyone that I’ve spoken to at Arsenal about Aaron Ramsdale has got nothing but good things to say about what he has brought to the place since he’s arrived, and the character, the mentality that he’s brought – and fair play to him, because we all doubted him massively.”
TIF thoughts on Aaron Ramsdale and Arsenal…
It’s safe to say there were certainly those who had their doubts over the signing of Ramsdale. Indeed, some fans were so angry at the transfer they sent abuse to the ‘keeper before he’d even stepped onto the pitch in Arsenal colours.
Impressively, it has taken no time at all for the 23-year-old to silence such doubters and earn the praise of former club legend David Seaman along the way.
Should Aaron Ramsdale be the new England number one?
Since making his debut with the Gunners, Ramsdale has kept four clean sheets in seven league outings, conceding just four times as well.
Not bad for a guy who was so heavily doubted after his move to north London.
