Watch: Arsenal’s Ramsdale talks Ben Foster through his save v Leicester
Aaron Ramsdale has been one of the signings of the summer, impressing fans and fellow players since his £23million move to Arsenal.
In a man of the match display against Leicester City last week, the goalkeeper made a world-class save to deny James Maddison from a curling free-kick, flying across his goalline to tip the ball onto the bar.
Following yet another win and clean sheet against Watford, he spoke to fellow England goalkeeper Ben Foster on his YouTube channel and explained his thought processes behind the save.
“I’ve watched it 100 times honestly, I’ve watched it so many times,” Ramsdale said. “He (Maddison) had a little sighting before which hit the wall. I’ve trained with him a lot. Been with him a lot.
“I thought he was going to reverse it, it was so close to the box and I thought he was going to put loads of pace on it my side.
“And our goalie coach is mad about saving your post so I’ve taken maybe a negative position my side, protecting my side and I’ve seen it has not come (to) my side, and I have just gone. I have just gone.”
Two quality goalkeepers chatting about their craft after facing each other is content we can all appreciate.
"I've watched it 100 times!" 🤣
"It looks better off the bar, doesn't it?" 😉
