Bernd Leno admits he felt nervous before joining us…


Arsenal’s latest signing Bernd Leno spoke of the honour at joining a club he’s always admired after the club confirmed his arrival on Tuesday.

Rumours were rife over the past week that the Leno talks had reached an advanced stage, and Unai Emery has now got the man he sees as the future No.1

Leno has solidified his spot between the sticks for Bayer Leverkusen since the age of 19, and the now 26-year-old has made the biggest move of his career.

He comes with a solid reputation with a record of keeping the second-highest clean sheets in the Bundesliga since the 2014/15 season.

Now, following on from one his idols in Jens Lehmann, Leno cannot wait to get started.

“It feels very good,” Leno told Arsenal Player.

“I’m happy, I’m proud to sign for Arsenal. For me it’s a dream to play for Arsenal.

“In Germany, Arsenal are so famous and when I heard it, I was a little bit nervous but at that moment it was clear for me: I wanted to sign for Arsenal.

“I spoke to Unai Emery and he said that he believes I’m a good goalkeeper, and that he wanted me to join,” Leno added.

With a new backroom staff in place, it will be interesting to see how Emery’s trusted goalkeeping coach Javi Garcia improves Leno’s game and implements him into the incoming philosophy.
