SUPPORTERS have claimed that “Aaron Ramsdale's days were numbered” after watching a clip of him leaving Arsenal legend Ian Wright looking shocked emerged.
Ex-Sheffield United and Bournemouth stopper Ramsdale, 25, arrived at the Emirates in 2021.
He instantly became No1 at the club and held that spot until September this year.
Spaniard Raya arrived on an initial loan from Brentford during the summer transfer window and the 28-year-old was preferred to the England international for the win at Everton in September.
The star has continued to be picked since by Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, with Ramsdale’s only outings since coming in the Carabao Cup.
Back in the summer, Ramsdale joined Gunners icon Wright, 60, for an interview on the Behind The Game podcast.

Ramsdale continued: “If someone’s giving me abuse I’ll turn around and I’ll give them a bit back.”

Wright looked stunned at Ramsdale’s revelation, before the goalie continued: “I’ve had my two/three minutes of sort of madness in my head, straight back to the football.
“I’ve got 10/15 minutes of total concentration again – next thing you know half time is around.”
The clip of the keeper’s admission has now re-emerged on social media, and it was shared by one fan along with several crying with laughter emojis and the caption: “Ramsdales days were numbered after he dropped this bombshell.
“He should’ve kept it to himself.”
A fellow Gooner shared a screenshot of Wright’s face during the interview and wrote: “This reaction from Ian says it all.”
Another agreed, writing: “Ian Wright's reaction and facial expression says it all.”
Posting the same shot of Wright, another wrote: “He wish he could stop him, but the words just kept coming out.”
However, not everybody was upset by Ramsdale’s remarks, with a host of fans backing him.
One replied: “People are taking this out of context. Obviously this is in a game when we are leading comfortably.”
