Ospina proves he’s too good to sit on Arsenal’s bench!
Although there is little debate about who should be Arsenal’s number one next season, with Petr Cech seemingly having that in the bag for sure. There is instead much debate surrounding who will be Arsenal’s goalkeeper on the bench for next season.
It has raised the question of whether it will be Szczesny or Ospina, and although Szczesny arguably has more potential to keep growing into a better keeper with experience, Ospina on the other hand seems to seal the win according to many, with his performances for the Gunners overall. Although that’s not something I necessarily agree with,
Tonight Ospina proved his worth in Columbia’s international match against Paraguay. He pulled off a few fantastic saves and really kept his side in the game. Ospina has proven on many occasions just how good of a goalkeeper he is. When he had his first solid run in the Arsenal team after Wojiciech Szczesny was dropped, Ospina proved to be a fantastic keeper that Arsenal had just sitting in the stands. Sadly for the Columbian, he is extremely inconsistent and his biggest flaw is on set pieces, especially catching.
Despite his inconsistencies many believe Ospina may be too good to sit on Arsenal’s bench and therefore it comes as no surprise that he may be considering his future at the club. According to reports, the 27 year old is being linked with Turkish side Beskitas, in a deal rumoured to be under £2 million, after two seasons with the Gunners.
Is Ospina too good to sit on Arsenal’s bench? Or should Arsenal try even harder to keep him at the club?
