The arrival of Bernd Leno has thrown all sorts of questions up into the air at Arsenal, notably with regards to who will be in Unai Emery’s plans ahead of next week. We recently made the case for David Ospina being the man to make way following Leno’s arrival, especially given that the Columbian is already behind Cech in the pecking order at the Emirates.
However, a fair chunk of Arsenal fans disagree, it seems.
We recently polled Arsenal-supporting readers on the topic, and instead of Ospina, it seems as though more fans would like to see Cech depart the club, instead.
In said poll, 55% of fans voted in favour of Cech departing the club, whilst 45% are calling for Ospina to leave. Granted, the results are close – but why are they so close?
Indeed, it likely comes down to Cech’s recent poor form. The 36-year-old has won every trophy available to him over the years, but last season, he was really poor.
Thus, it seems that whilst some fans are willing to accept his natural descent into second-choice, others are on the side of Ospina – who, to be fair to him, had a better campaign last time out during his limited chances.
It will be very interesting to see what happens to Arsenal’s goalkeepers this summer.
