Bernd Leno has performed well in Arsenal training since being abandoned by Mikel Arteta, Athletic says.
Get a reaction
they pretend that Leno and Rob Holding have impressed observers at London Colney, although they haven’t been much of Arsenal’s starting lineup this quarter.
For Leno, it could have been particularly difficult to bear.
The German has been a constant player for Arsenal since joining the club.
However, he was taken out of the squad to give summer signing Aaron Ramsdale a chance and the England international has not regretted.
Ramsdale has been one of Arsenal’s stars of the season, his imposing presence clearly helping the Gunners’ defense.
Luckily for Arteta, Leno seems to have reacted well by losing his place.
He has not made a fuss and it is said that he is looking to return to Arsenal’s side.
It seems unlikely, despite his strong performances in training, but the fact that he continues to show such dedication to impress is a real testament to his professionalism.
Holding is in a similar boat, as he could struggle to break Arsenal’s center defensive pair.
Gabriel and Ben White have been preferred to him this season and for good reason.
Their partnership has been one of the main reasons Arsenal have been so successful lately.
But Arteta will at least be content with knowing that if an injury does occur, his substitutes are showing signs that they are ready to return to London Colney.
