Kroenke wants to keep hold of Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger is in the final year of his managerial contract with Arsenal and questions have been emerging in relation to the future of the French coach if he will be offered yet another contract extension or if he will be finally making his way out of the Emirates Stadium where he has stayed in for over 20 years.

The 67 year old manager is a coach that has been able to keep Arsenal in the top 5 spots of the Premier League for the past years which is a very impressive thing to accomplish in every single season. (more…)

Ospina Left Out

David Ospina has lost his place in the Arsenal line up and is spending most of his time on the bench these days, but, the boss Arsene Wenger still has got faith in him.

Wenger believes Ospina would become the first choice shot stopper at the club at some point of time.

Ospina had been used ahead of Petr Cech in Europe at the start of the season, but, one of his mistakes against Olympiacos cost Arsenal big and pushed them to the brink of elimination.

Since then, the 27-year old is out of the reckoning for the European and Premiership games and it’s Cech who is playing in both the competitions.

And, given how skilfully Cech has performed between the sticks in the recent times, he is likely to retain his position as Arsenal no. 1 in near future.

Ospina has got a couple of opportunities in the Cup, but, it seems he will have to wait for his time in the bigger competitions.

However, Wenger has no doubt that the Colombian’s time would come.

The boss was quoted as saying, “My decision to sign Cech had nothing to do with Ospina’s form.”

“It’s not that he was not meeting my expectations and that’s why I went for Cech. That was not the case at all.”

“But, you know when you have the opportunity to get somebody of the quality of Cech, it’s almost impossible for you as a manager to deny it.”

“It’s unfortunate that Ospina’s had to suffer a little bit because of that signing, but, without a shadow of doubt I can tell you that he is a fantastic goalie and surely our man for future.”

Ospina has got 18 Arsenal caps under his belt till now.
