Ian Wright says the ‘mocked’ Arsenal player can now ‘laugh’ at critics who wrote him off

Ian Wright has claimed Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, previously ‘ridiculed’, can now ‘laugh’ at his critics who wrote him off.

The Highbury legend referred to how Ramsdale was viewed when Arsenal first signed him. as he told Premier League Productions (5/19/22 at 12:25 p.m.).

Ramsdale was signed by the Gunners after suffering back-to-back relegations with Bournemouth and Sheffield United.

Add to that the fact that the 24-year-old wasn’t an England international, which raised further questions as to why the London club would want to secure his services.

But to this day he remains a regular England player and Wright believes his rise to the top has been “very, very quick”.

“Aaron Ramsdale, when he went to Arsenal, he was kind of mocked,” Wright said. “They said ‘Oh he was relegated twice,’ which I can’t take as a negative at a young age.

“He came in there. We saw his appearance. He was very, very fast – and he plays with him regularly (Pickford for England) that will make him understand: “Yes, I play with a top keeper. I have to fix myself’.

“Aaron Ramsdale seems to put it (his feelings) with more fun, while Jordan Pickford, to whom you probably attribute it, gets a lot of criticism.

“Whereas Aaron Ramsdale can now look at people and laugh at them because he’s been written off to an extent.

“He can now laugh at his own expense and laugh with the fans because he’s more relaxed about the way he plays.”

It looks like no Champions League football will be played at Arsenal next season which will be a real slap in the face for the fans.

But it shouldn’t hide the fact that under Mikel Arteta, Ramsdale was one of their standout players – also praised by Alan Shearer.

The Gunners now have a long-term goalkeeper and if they continue to progress it won’t be long before they return to the Champions League.
