Although his signing hasn’t yet been made official, Arsene Wenger has more or less confirmed the arrival of David Ospina, and says that he’ll be coming on board to challenge Wojciech Szczesny.
Speaking in New York ahead of tomorrow’s friendly against the Red Bulls, the boss said, “You know at the start Szczensy will be the No. 1, then again we’ll be down to performances and, if Ospina shows that he is better, he will play.”
That kind of competition is healthy, especially in the goalkeeping department, although Szczesny himself paid tribute to fellow Pole Lukasz Fabianski who has moved to Swansea.
On his Twitter account, he said, “I’ll miss Lukasz Fabianski, he challenged me every day in training for the No 1 spot.”
Anyway, it seems that Ospina is done and dusted, another piece of next season’s puzzle put together.
