Former Liverpool star, Graeme Souness has issued advice to Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale as he urged him to learn from Manchester United duo Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay by fighting for his place in the Gunners’ squad.
This comes after Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta dropped Ramsdale from his lineup after the North London club signed David Raya on loan from Brentford.
Souness has now urged Ramsdale to toughen up mentally and fight for his place in the team, just like Maguire and McTominay did at Old Trafford.
“It is time for Aaron Ramsdale to do his own fighting, rather than his dad doing it for him after his appearance on a podcast this week. The Arsenal goalkeeper has to show what he is made of and deal with the situation in which he finds himself,” Souness was quoted by Sportskeeda as saying.
“I would ask him to look at the example of Harry Maguire. He took all the criticism on the chin, all the disappointment. He dealt with it and finds himself back in the team at Manchester United. Scott McTominay, too. He was being pushed out the door at the start of the season, and now he’s in the side. That is football. For Ramsdale, this a tough, mental challenge.”
