“I really like what I heard in the interview. He speaks really well.
“It was refreshing to see him give such an honest assessment of the game because the team did not play well enough. Ramsdale is the kind of character I want in the Arsenal dressing room, 100 per cent.
“I was talking with Bob Wilson the other night and he was saying he has a lot of admiration for Ramsdale. He watched him a lot at Bournemouth and Sheffield United and said he was a top goalkeeper.
“To come into Arsenal with the mindset of ‘I want to be number one.’ And to take that opportunity when it comes is just brilliant.
“He’s played five games and he’s conceded just one goal. This is superb. That is really good.
“Let’s not forget, there were a lot of Arsenal fans who made his life hell when he signed. But, he is the type of character the club needs. He has the mental toughness.”
