The 27-year-old’s signing by Arsenal this summer, according to a pundit, is “pathetic.”.

For bringing David Raya to Arsenal this summer, Mikel Arteta has come under fire from Ben Foster, who called the deal pathetic and unnecessary.

Foster made the comments on his YouTube channel after the Gunners’ opening goal in their weekend draw with Fulham, which hardly earned Aaron Ramsdale any praise.

Naturally, many people will now wonder if David Raya will start for Arsenal in their upcoming match. Many people were shocked when the Gunners signed the Spaniard on a loan in the summer.

Watching Mikel Arteta manage his two goalkeepers was always going to be fascinating. He initially remained loyal to Ramsdale. However, some people might be anticipating a change at this point.

Foster calls David Raya’s acquisition by Arsenal pathetic.

In the opening minute of Saturday’s match, Andreas Pereira broke the tie. Ramsdale was penalized because Bukayo Saka lost the ball while he was well off his line. Furthermore, Pereira’s mishit shot into the bottom corner suggested that he was unsure of his position in relation to his goal.

It would be unfair to say that Ramsdale made a serious error. However, some may be speculating that Arteta will now be ruthless and make a change now that Raya is on the bench.

Ben Foster then criticized Arsenal for signing the former Brentford player, claiming that having him as a rival does Ramsdale absolutely no favors.

“I detest it; it’s pathetic. It wasn’t something that needed to happen, right? According to him, they were not required to sign David Raya.

“He has excelled as a goalie for the past two years. With Jordan Pickford, he is edging closer to being England’s top goalkeeper. He’s as good as anyone in this country when he’s self-assured and has a manager wrapping his arm around him. “.

Arteta has demonstrated in the past that he is capable of being brutal with his goalkeepers. Before Ramsdale had his chance, Bernd Leno actually didn’t do much wrong.

At the beginning of that season, Leno did give up a few goals. But in those first three games, he was possibly Arsenal’s best player.

Leno was not Arteta’s signing, which might be helpful to Ramsdale. He might therefore be more inclined to stand by Ramsdale.

But it is undeniable that Arsenal’s decision to sign Raya was a puzzling one that might go wrong.

Gary Neville, a former Premier League defender, disagrees with Mikel Arteta’s choice towards Aaron Ramsdale and David Raya compete for the No. 1 position at Arsenal.

Last season, Aaron Ramsdale was Arsenal’s first-choice goalkeeper, but David Raya has since joined the team to give the England international competition.

Regarding the competition be the Arsenal’s No. 1. Neville declared: “I don’t like goalkeeper competition. I feel you require a resounding “No.1″. And a definite Yes followed by No.2”.

Raya, who was Brentford’s go-to goalie, has signed a temporary loan deal with Arsenal.

To be clear, Arteta chose Ramsdale to play for his team’s 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Monday, so he currently appears to be Arsenal’s backup goalkeeper.

Headache that wasn’t necessary.

Later on, when they are not playing, you could easily imagine Ramsdale or Raya getting upset.

Since both players are goalkeepers at the Premier League level, it should be challenging for Arteta to persuade one of the pair to sit out the game.

If this experiment continued for more than a year, it would be unexpected. Though it was clear that Arteta wanted two solid shot-stoppers, you can assume that the majority of managers would not pass up the chance to bolster their team.

Raya is an excellent player, so of course he does that. But if he stays Arsenal’s No. 1, how much will the 27-year-old actually gain from this move? if 2, not much.

However, the season is quite long. The England international demonstrated last season that he is way too good to be sitting on anyone’s bench, but still has time to take Ramsdale’s spot, which then raises the question, what happens to him? It will be interesting to see how everything turns out.
