Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale aims to become a club legend and stay for 15 years
Aaron Ramsdale is determined to remain with Arsenal for the next 15 years and hopes to establish himself as an iconic figure for the club. The goalkeeper, who joined Arsenal for £30 million from Sheffield United in 2021, has been an outstanding performer for the team. He has been instrumental in Arsenal’s impressive run this season as they strive to win their first Premier League championship since 2004.
On Monday evening, Ramsdale was presented with the Goalkeeper of the Year award at the London Football Awards. Following the ceremony, the English goalkeeper made it clear that he intends to remain at Arsenal for the remainder of his playing career. Ramsdale reflected on the challenges he has faced in moving from one club to another, including his loan spells, and expressed his desire to stay with Arsenal for the next 10, 12, or even 15 years. He sees Arsenal as a long-term home and is committed to maintaining his level of performance at the highest level for an extended period.
‘Hopefully, I’ll never have to leave and I’ll become a real hero and legend at this football club.
When asked about Arteta’s influence on his career at Arsenal so far, Ramsdale said: ‘From the first phone call, from the first day he said be yourself, you don’t need to be anybody who hides behind an image, or to shy away from speaking up in changing rooms.
‘The first day I came in, thankfully I knew a few of the boys from previous clubs or England, so I was able to come in and joke straight away and people can see my character. It definitely allowed me to express myself on the pitch from the first game.’
