Ramsdale told to scrap heart-stopping conduct as Arsenal footage emerges - Campbell
Kevin Campbell does not want to see Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale dummying opposition attackers in his own 18-yard box.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Highbury favourite heaped praise on Ramsdale but admitted his heart was in his mouth when the 23-year-old dropped his shoulder to take the ball past Teemu Pukki.
Ramsdale replaced Bernd Leno to make his Premier League debut on Saturday.
The English keeper kept a clean sheet as Mikel Arteta’s side picked up their first points of the season with a 1-0 win over Norwich City at the Emirates.
As quoted by the Evening Standard after the victory, Ramsdale revealed he is relishing competing with Leno for the number one jersey.
When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of Ramsdale’s first league start, Campbell said:

“Ramsdale got the nod over Leno and whatever he had to do he did it very well.
“In truth, he did not have an awful lot to do but his distribution was very good. He used the ball very well and quickly when it was at his feet.
“That dummy he did to Pukki… Now we don’t want to see too much of that this season! But I understand that he did it because he had to.
“They put him in a difficult situation so he dropped the shoulder. He got away with it once but not again please.”
