Arsenal’s new goalkeeper Bernd Leno has spoken out about his lack of first-team minutes under manager Unai Emery since moving from Bayer Leverkusen to the London capital
Bernd Leno is yet to make his full debut for Arsenal this season, having to watch on with Petr Cech preferred as the first choice in north London.
Speaking with German newspaper Sport Bild, Leno opened up about having to watch on from the sidelines since his £22.5m switch to the Premier League this summer.
Leno said: “I am convinced that my change was the right decision, I’m not crazy. It may take a few weeks or months, but my time here will come.”
Arsenal boss Unai Emery also responded to questions surrounding Leno after the opening day defeat to Manchester City, saying: “We want the competition with the goalkeeper and also every player in the squad, The position is the same. The same chances for all the goalkeepers.
“Petr Cech had a very good pre-season. He has experience of continuing to defend our goal. Leno is starting with us, he is working very well and also played very good in pre-season. He can wait his moment.”.
