Sunderland midfielder talks up goalkeeper.
Sunderland midfielder Alfred N’Diaye has said that he is not surprised that Arsenal are taking an interest in goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and believes that his teammate is a better option than Wojciech Szczesny, Sky Sports reports.
Mignolet is just one of a number of goalkeepers that Arsene Wenger is rumoured to be looking into and N’Diaye believes that the speculation is justified after enjoying a fine season with the Black Cats.
“Simon is a quality keeper. When I came here I had not seen him or heard of him, but every time he plays he is fantastic. The quality is there for all to see,” N’Diaye said.
“I can understand why he has been linked with other teams because this is normal. It is very normal for that to happen when you play as well as he does.”
“He is better than the keeper at Arsenal, Szczesny, he is better than him – no doubt about it.”
“Mignolet was brilliant against Southampton and he is like that every week. He is such a good keeper and that is why he is being linked with other clubs.”
Sunderland still are still in danger of going down and face a tough final day trip to White Heart Lane to meet Spurs.
