Sam Allardyce believes that Aaron Ramsdale may have his confidence destroyed after Arsenal dropped him as first choice goalkeeper. He suggests that Ramsdale may end up not being good enough for the Gunners. Speaking to No Tippy Tappy Football podcast, the situation of goalkeeper remained a key talking point at the start of this Premier League season. Though, Ramsdale has been the first choice goalkeeper since his £30m move to the Emirates Stadium. However, it was a real surprise when Arsenal were linked with David Raya in the summer. Consequently, they ended up bringing the Spaniard on loan.

Sam Allardyce is concerned about Ramsdale situation

Aaron Ramsdale kept himself as the first choice until the International break. After that, Raya has been the first choice for Mikel Arteta. He started in their Champions League opener as well as the North London Derby against Tottenham. Moreover, it is still not clear who will be the first choice of Mikel Arteta in long-term. But it seems that Ramsdale may sustain his spot in the near future as Spaniard’s loan move will be over next season. However, Sam Allardyce feels that it may have a negative impact on Ramsdale. He told No Tippy Tappy Football,

It could also destroy his confidence and he could end up not being good enough to play for Arsenal if he can’t handle it.”

“I always felt that the second goalkeeper; there would be the number one, but the biggest choice on number two would be could he handle it?”

Sam added, “This situation could be a real problem. Clearly, they’ve found a goalkeeper much better than they thought he was going to be.”

The good news is that Ramsdale’s performance against Brentford in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday suggested that his confidence had not been knocked. But there is surely some way to go before anyone can safely say that both men are content with the roles they have.
