Tony Cascarino explains why Arsenal fans should be worried about Bernd Leno in goal next season

Posted on


Tony Cascarino has identified Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno as a potential weak spot for the Gunners heading into the new Premier League season.

Arsenal have pulled off some impressive business this summer as they bid to improve on their disappointing fifth-place finish last term.

Nicolas Pepe has arrived from Lille for a club-record £72million and Dani Ceballos also joins on loan from Real Madrid.

However, the Gunners have not strengthened in defence, with William Saliba being loaned back to Saint-Etienne for the season after signing for the north Londoners.

Many fans consider the back four to be Arsenal’s main cause for concern, particularly with mistake-prone centre-back Shkodran Mustafi.

But Cascarino believes they should focus their attention elsewhere.


“The one position I’m a little bit concerned about with Arsenal, and it worried me watching them last season, is the keeper,” he told talkSPORT.

“I think Leno is a big player for them this year, he’s got to be better.

“Last season, he was punching balls that were quite easily catchable and I was thinking, ‘Wow, you’ve got to be better than that, you’ve got to be more commanding’.”
