Wayne Rooney, former Premier League player, has expressed his admiration for Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale.
The goalkeeper made headlines when his gaffe against Southampton on Friday gave the visitors a 27-second lead.
Ramsdale was outstanding in Arsenal’s match against Liverpool two weeks ago, and Wayne Rooney is convinced the Arsenal man will put up a strong performance when they face Manchester City on Wednesday.
As quoted by Metro, he said:
“Normally, with goalkeepers, you want them to have character and presence but you want them to have calmness as well.”
“If you’re going to be as vocal and extrovert as Ramsdale, you have to back it up with your performances, because otherwise it all looks a bit cocky.”
“Well, he does and he reminds me of Peter Schmeichel.”
“Obviously, Ramsdale has to keep improving to get near Schmeichel’s levels but the whole package makes him the closest thing I’ve seen for a long time to the Great Dane.”
