Arsenal’s Ramsdale Wins Castrol Save of the Month Award for Crucial Stop Against AFC Bournemouth.
Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has been awarded March’s Castrol Save of the Month for his sensational stop to deny Dango Ouattara during their match against AFC Bournemouth.
The save was a game-changer, as it prevented the Gunners from going 2-0 down after just 21 minutes of play. Ramsdale, who won his first Premier League monthly award, revealed that the save was a result of the hard work put in with the goalkeeping coaches on one v ones.
Speaking to Arsenal Official Website He said “On his save, Ramsdale told Arsenal’s official website: “We do quite a lot of work with our goalkeeping coaches doing spreads and one v ones. The ball came across the box and Dom Solanke couldn’t get on it, and the winger took it first time. I knew I needed to get on the end of it, and it managed to hit me on the forearm so it was a nice save.
“It’s probably better than what it was given the timing in the game. We were 1-0 down and if it went to 2-0 it would have been difficult. With what happened with Reiss [Nelson] and the comeback heightens the save even more, so it was a pivotal moment in the game.”
The save came at a pivotal moment in the game, with Arsenal trailing 1-0 at the time, and Ramsdale’s efforts proved instrumental in their eventual comeback victory. The award completes a hat-trick of accolades for Arsenal, with Bukayo Saka winning the EA SPORTS Player of the Month and Mikel Arteta named Barclays Manager of the Month.
