Arsenal goalkeeper and Colombian David Ospina has officially parted ways with his National coach Jose Pekerman, who has been with the South American country for seven years.
Pekerman, 69, has been facing huge criticism from fans following his not-too-impressive outings at the Summer World Cup in Russia.
Despite leading the country past the group stage in two consecutive World Cups, the manager hasn’t done too well in the eyes of his employers and he was finally shown the exit door last month.
Having seen the manager- who made him the first-choice goalie – left the Colombian team, David Ospina took to his verified Twitter account to praise Pekerman and his backroom staffs.
According to his tweet, the coach has done a great job with the country and he deserves to be treated well.
Ospina, who is on loan at Napoli, further thanked the coach for the role he played in his career.
He, however, wished him and his technical crew well in his future endeavours.
It should be recalled that the 30-year-old goalie was made the country’s first-choice netminder despite his inactive role at the Emirates Stadium during Wenger’s reign at the club.
