Kevin Campbell has slammed Bernd Leno for his “shaky” performance against Liverpool and has called for a “serious shake-up” at Arsenal.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gunners striker said that he was “shocked” to see Mohamed Salah score past the 29-year-old shot-stopper from an acute angle on Saturday.
Leno conceded three in what was his 39th appearance of the 2020-21 campaign, as Jurgen Klopp’s side won 3-0 at the Emirates.
Football Insider revealed last month that the club fear they chose to offload the wrong goalkeeper last summer when they sold Emiliano Martinez to Aston Villa.
Mikel Arteta was forced to choose between Leno and Martinez, as the Gunners looked to recoup some cash in order to reshape their squad.
When asked for his assessment of Leno’s performance on Saturday, Campbell told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs:
“Leno is a good goalkeeper, but he is not at the top level and that is the level we need at Arsenal.
“I thought he was shaky at times and sometimes you need your goalkeeper to keep you in it and he did not do that.
“Salah’s goal, I was shocked that it went in, it went through his legs. It was very surprising that it went in, but then again am I really that shocked that Leno made another mistake?
“There needs to be a serious shake-up at the end of the season.”
