David Ospina has once again admitted that he will consider his future at the Emirates at the end of the season after being left frustrated at being Arsenal’s second-choice goalkeeper.
The Colombian is set to play in the Carabao Cup final later this evening but insists being the club’s cup and European shot-stopper may not be enough to keep him at Arsenal beyond the summer.
Despite saying playing for Arsenal is ‘a dream come true’, Ospina is frustrated with his current role at the club
In an interview with DIRECTV, as reported by the Daily Mirror, the 29-year-old said:
“I am open to everything. Today I give everything for Arsenal, I like to be successful here, but you start to contemplate every alternative depending on each situation.
“I still have a contract, but as I say, I always like to have more opportunities, to have more continuity in the squad as every goalkeeper needs.
“Today, I am sharing my position with an excellent goalkeeper in Petr, but he knows that I like to play and I know he likes to keep playing, we have this competition between us, I just like to have continuity, I will think about the future at another moment.
“The manager has his reasons for deciding who does or does not get to play. Our position as goalkeepers is a very complicated one because you have less opportunities, in the team there is just one player who plays in that role, and who gets the support. I always try to do my best.”
Ospina has previously expressed his frustration with his role as second-choice goalkeeper and had the opportunity to leave last summer with several clubs interested in his services. However, Ospina opted to remain at the Emirates and will once again consider his future when the season concludes.
