Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has insisted he had a conversation with Bernd Leno over him losing the No. 1 goalkeeper spot to Aaron Ramsdale.
Arteta urged the goalkeeper to concentrate on regaining his location in the side.
Leno has not made a Premier League appearance since August 28.
In an interview this week, he claimed “there was no clear reason why I was out, but it had nil to do with my performance.”
Ramsdale, who arrived in a £30 million deal from Sheffield United this summertime, has speedily established himself as the side’s foremost option, starting in all 3 subsequent league wins over Norwich City, Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur.
Notwithstanding, when asked in relation to Leno’s comments ahead of Saturday’s trip to Brighton and Hove Albion, Arteta said: “I had a real clear conversation with him 48 hours before I was going to create the choice. Apparently whatsoever conversation I have with him is totally private and I’m not going to speak with whatsoever media in relation to it.
“[I expect from him] the same that he’s done every single daytime. Educate the way he does, be the way he is, the individual he is, the way he handles himself, and seek to aid the other keepers and the other keepers seek to aid him.”
