Wenger warns Ospina

LONDON. — Arsene Wenger has warned David Ospina that he’s not yet won the race to become his new No.1.

But Ospina wants to follow in the footsteps of David De Gea, Hugo Lloris and Joe Hart.

The trio have shone in the English Premier League and are now considered among the best in the business.

Ospina (26) has been given his big Gunners chance by Wenger and he’s desperate to make it count.

He said: “There are some very good goalkeepers in the Premier League.

“There’s De Gea, Hugo Lloris, Hart – they’re great keepers who’ve proved their worth over the course of many seasons and are continuing to do so now.

“At Arsenal we have very good goalkeepers in the shape of Wojciech Szczesny and Emiliano Martinez. The Premier League has always had top-quality goalkeepers.”

Ospina impressed Wenger with a string of impressive showings for Colombia at the World Cup.

He started the season off as the No.2 but has now kept four successive clean sheets after coming in to replace Szczesny. — AFP.
