Official: Getafe Signs Arsenal Shot-Stopper



One of Arsenal goal keepers has momentarily taken a walk away from the Emirates to pitch tents with Getafe, It has been affirmed that shot stopper will spend the 2017-18 season on loan with the Spanish side.

Be that as it may, Emiliano Martinez his decision to leave Arsenal briefly is not down to something besides a desire to enhance his skill and come back to the Emirates Stadium prepared to attempt and secure his place in Arsene Wenger’s starting XI.

The 24-year-old Argentinian made five first-team appearances for the Gunners last season and has previously had loan spells with Oxford, Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham, and Wolves.

Martinez hopes he can return from Getafe in a year’s time and be challenging for the gloves.


The 24-year-old told Arsenal Player: “I’ve always wanted to improve. It’s never enough for me. My kicking is good but I want to have the perfection of a goalkeeper, even on crosses. I know I’m good on crosses but I still do 50 crosses in training.

“It’s in my blood to train hard. When you’re not in the squad and you have to train the day after, sometimes it’s hard because you want to be involved in the team and you want to play. I always tell myself, ‘The chance will come and I won’t let it run’. That’s what keeps me going and motivated all the time.

“I came from nothing and I’m at Arsenal now, one of the biggest clubs in the world, but I’m never satisfied. I was third choice fighting for the second spot, so maybe the season after I will fight for No 1. You always need to give more at Arsenal. It’s never enough and that’s what I try to do.”
