Arsenal first-choice goalkeeper Petr Cech has been warned by Arsenal former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann to be very careful else he lost his place to Bernd Leno.
The former Chelsea goalie failed to live up to expectations against Manchester City on Sunday as he was at fault for many misplaced passes. The Czech international could have done better to prevent Raheem Sterling’s shot from sailing into the net.
However, Lehmann has told Cech to up his game if he wants to remain as the club’s No1 goalkeeper ahead of new signing Leno this season.
According to Lehmann in an interview on Sky Sports, Leno is a good goalie with huge potential to become the Gunners first choice under Unai Emery.
He urges Cech to improve on his performances else the former Bayer Leverkusen star, who joined the Gunners for £20m, would take his place in Emery’s starting lineup on the long run.
Bernd Leno, 26, joins the Gunners after spending seven years of regular football with Bayer Leverkusen and he is hoping he could bench Petr Cech in no time this season.
After his unimpressive display for the team in their first match of the season, Cech will be hoping to perform brilliantly against Chelsea in the second match of the season this weekend should he gets the nod to start ahead of his greatest competitor Bernd Leno.
“Bernd is a good ‘keeper, no doubt about that. The question is: can he show more than he did in the past? “He must take more risks and continue his development. He does that – good!” he said
