David Ospina likes it rough…
David Ospina has taken over as the Arsenal no.1 from Wojciech Szczesny, and while the 26-year-old lacks the ideal height for a goalkeeper, he is relishing the physicality of the Premier League.

After replacing Szczesny, following the Poland international’s series of poor performances and incidents, including being caught smoking in the dressing-room showers, Ospina has more than stood up to the task.
The Colombian international has kept three consecutive clean-sheets, which has silenced any critics who believe his lack of height could hinder his success in English football.
“English football is very direct. You have to be focused for the entire 90 minutes because you can score or concede at any moment,” Ospina was quoted by the Mirror.
“The football here is really physical and nobody wants to give an inch – that’s what I think makes this great league so exciting and special.”
Szczesny’s place with the Gunners certainly seems to be under significant threat with Ospina set to continue to grasp the opportunity between the sticks with both hands.
