Arsenal: Klopp's Question on Leno, Ramsdale Hints Debut Match, Arteta Talks on Xhaka's New Contract

Granit Xhaka

Mikel Arteta claimed that Arsenal decided to extend Granit Xhaka’s contract because the Swiss international has been very vital in Arsenal’s current squad and excluding him for the whole of this season and beyond would be very unrealistic. He also said that Xhaka deserved to be awarded because he has always been loyal to the club even when things went sideways for him.

Arteta mentioned that he was a standout voice in the dressing room and would often whip the team forward whether the team is winning or losing. Xhaka extended his tenure with the club for four more years and rumor has it that Arteta is grooming him to reclaim his position as Arsenal’s captain.

Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp recently asked a question on Bernd Leno, consequently raising eyebrows from football fans and pundits alike. Klopp asked one reporter whether he thought Leno was fouled in last week’s match during Brentford’s second goal.

By asking this question, he tried to show the reporters that a new football culture and rules have been adopted over the years thereby evolving the whole dynamic of contemporary football. In Leno’s case, he said that in the 80s the goal would have been disallowed because Leno was overprotected and could not see the ball, but he pointed out that now since there are a lot of cameras in the field, everybody thinks that Leno had a perfect angle and view of Pinnock who made the throw-in.

Aaron Ramsdale

Arsenal’s new signing Aaron Ramsdale had a message for his new fans earlier today. He informed the fans that he was exhilarated to join the historic club and that he could not wait to play for the Gunners tomorrow. This means that he is likely to make his debut tomorrow against Chelsea at the Emirates but it is yet to be confirmed by Mikel Arteta.
