If the Arsenal transfer rumour mill has got it right, then Arsene Wenger will soon complete the signing of the brilliant and vastly experienced Petr Cech from Chelsea. And it appears as though the player that will then be our second choice keeper is Wojciech Szczesny, not David Ospina.
I am not sure exactly what the Colombian international has done wrong to warrant this, because he had overtaken his Polish rival in the pecking order. In fact you could say that it was his calming influence and lack of mistakes between the sticks that convinced the boss how vital it was to have a top class keeper. His reward could be to be sold.
Imagine the situation; you play brilliantly for a French club that never gets close to a trophy and then concede the fewest goals of any keeper in the World Cup finals and this gets you a dream transfer to the Premier League and Arsenal. Niggling injury problems disrupt your career at the new club but when you get a chance you grab it with both gloves and post the best stats of any keeper from then on.
However, you still miss out on playing at Wembley in the FA cup final and when you come back from the Copa America you are surplus to requirements. How unlucky is that? And speaking of the tournament in South America, Ospina has conceded just a single goal in his three group games and there was nothing he could do about that bullet header.
Because of Colombia´s struggles at the other end though, Ospina and his team mates only just crept through to the knockout stage as a third placed side and will now play Argentina and that will probably be that for arguably thye unluckiest man in football right now.
