Aaron Ramsdale needs to stop admonishing Arsenal defenders after mistakes, according to legendary former keeper and coach Bob Wilson. 

Wilson, who played for Arsenal between 1963-74, is a huge admirer of the stopper, who has been thriving at the Emirates since joining in the summer from Sheffield United

But his only criticism is that it can be unhelpful to yell at team-mates after they make mistakes, as Ramsdale has a habit of doing this season.

Speaking on David Seaman’s podcast, Wilson said: ‘I would have one word with him at this moment to say, “You’re doing brilliantly Aaron. The save at Leicester was sensational, one of the great saves ever… but there is one thing you need to restrain from doing and that is definitely yelling so publicly to those in front of you who make a mistake”.’

Seaman added: ‘Good point. I totally agree. I had this code with my defence, we don’t shout at each other. If you make a mistake, we talk about it afterwards.

‘He does need to be just a little bit aware. At the moment he’s not making mistakes. If he does make a mistake, then because he is having a go at his defenders, it gives them a right to have a go back at him.

‘I don’t feel that gains anything on the pitch.’

Wilson added: ‘It’s the only criticism I have of him. His distribution at the moment at times is amazing as well.

‘I’m sort of in awe of him. Although I was admiring the way he has dealt with the Bournemouth and the Sheffield United situations, I could never have predicted that he would hit the ground running the way he has and been instrumental in Arsenal being in a fourth or fifth position.’

The 23-year-old can be considered a real success so far even though eyebrows were raised at the fee, understood to be £30million with add-ons included. 

He usurped error-prone Berd Leno in goal and looks as though he will remain Arsenal’s No 1 for years to come.
