Arsenal goalkeeper Damian Martinez recently revealed it was his family who convinced him to stay with the London club, and he’s grateful that is so far paying off, reports Sky
“They said ‘let’s wait one year to see if you get the opportunity, don’t rush it’. I was still young – I was only 21, I just turned 22 – and I think I did good to stay here. I got the opportunity that my agent and family told me, so I am really pleased about that. Arsenal is one of the biggest clubs in the world so I am in no rush to leave. I love this club,” he said.
Martinez has played in Arsenal’s last three games due to injury to Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina, and has taken his chance with both hands, keeping clean sheets against Borussia Dortmund, West Bromwich Albion and Southampton.
