Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale comments on his views after losing his spot to David Raya. Arteta signed Raya from Brentford on loan to give Aaron some competition in the squad. Consequently, Ramsdale is no longer the first-choice for Mikel Arteta. He has to adjust himself on the bench for a considerable time this season so far. Speaking during the international break, the 25-year old Englishman admits that it is hard for him to accept it. Though, his relationship with Raya is good.

Aaron Ramsdale speaks on his position and relations with Raya

Ramsdale, last season’s No. 1 at the Emirates Stadium, is now second choice this season with the arrival of David Raya from Brentford.

“Whether it is me or David who plays we need to be able to just focus and play. But at the same time, it’s a strange, big headline.

It’s one that we’re working through as a club and it’s one that the manager puts in front of us and we have to deal with it. That is what we are doing.

“We are with each other for three or four hours a day – there are four or five of us in that [goalkeeper] group so if we don’t get on it wouldn’t work.

“We work professionally really well together. We push each other in training and there’s days where I come in and I’m down because of the situation and he picks me up.”

For whatever reason there might be a day where he’s down and even though I’m suffering and hurting for not playing I have to stand up and be able to push him.”

“Because it’s one of the first times it’s happened with the situation, it has been difficult. There are times where you’re doing the right thing but it’s the wrong thing and if you don’t do it, it’s the wrong thing.

“So it’s a double-edged sword. There’s a lot … a lot of attention. It’s a position where it’s famously said if you’re not spoken about, it means you’ve done a good job. There’s a lot of talk at the minute.”
