Wenger Defends Recalling David Ospina For Arsenal’s CL Clash

David Ospina

Reports are out claiming that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger defended his recalling of David Ospina for their Champions League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb.

Ospina, Mikel Arteta and Kieran Gibbs started for the first time this season. Mathieu Debuchy was also starting his first game for more than a month.

“When you don’t win the game have to look at yourself and think you haven’t got it right,” said Wenger.

“I don’t believe the players who came in had a bad game but it didn’t work, it didn’t work.

“Ospina is a very good goalkeeper and he showed that again. Petr Cech not having played a full season (last season) I tried to give him some rest mentally. It is the same for goalkeepers as the outfield players.”
