As we are all well aware, Petr Cech has announced that he is retiring at the end of the season, but now it seems that the man who was his perpetual backup for all these years is now going to return as backup to Bernd Leno.
David Ospina believed that he would keep a first team place at Napoli this season and therefore earn a permanent move in the summer, but it now looks like his dreams are in shatters after just starting 17 games this campaign and he is now expecting to return to the Emirates next season.
‘My current situation is that I am on loan for this season and there’s a clause based on the number of games, so if I play regularly, it’ll become an automatic purchase,’ Ospina was quoted as saying.
‘When the situation doesn’t depend on me, all I can do is wait for the decisions to be made by Napoli.
‘The club had just spent a lot of money on Meret, a young goalkeeper with a great future ahead of him, so I knew that when he came back from injury, this might happen’.
I don’t about you, but I certainly wouldn’t object to having him back. In fact Emery may test him out in the summer and find he is a bit more reliable than Leno and start him more regularly.
What do you think?
