Arsenal Legend Ian Wright has revealed he doesn’t understand Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger’s decision to opt for David Ospina between the sticks instead of Petr Cech.
Wright believes Wenger treats the Europe’s League competition like the League Cup by not featuring his strongest team available.
The Gunners were forced to a 1-1 draw in their opener of their Champions League game on Tuesday.
He told BT Sport before the game: “I didn’t like it the last time… I like the No.1 to be in for these big games.
“I could understand if it was the League Cup, with all due respect, but it’s the Champions League and Petr Cech is the No1 goalkeeper.
“I know that Ospina needs to get games, but for me, Ospina knows that he is a No.2.
“And I don’t think that Ospina is going to cause too many problems for Arsene Wenger if he is not playing in the first game of the Champions League away to PSG, where let’s face it, Arsenal need to get a result to build confidence.
“He’s shown a lot of faith in Ospina again. He did it against Olympiakos last season and it didn’t work out. We have to hope that it is going to work out today.”
