Aaron Ramsdale says 21-year-old Arsenal star is such a funny guy
Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has praised Gunners teammate Emile Smith Rowe for being such a funny guy.
At the same time, the summer signing poked fun at his teammate by saying he’s “not clever” at all, which is what makes him so hilarious.
Ramsdale took part in an Ask Me Anything session on Arsenal’s Twitch channel on Thursday.
He was asked about who he felt were the funniest players at the club.
“There’s a couple,” replied Ramsdale (27 mins in). “Emile Smith Rowe’s funny because he is not very clever whatsoever… he is funny.”
He also name-checked other “funny characters” including Bukayo Saka, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Nicolas Pepe, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Kieran Tierney, Rob Holding and Calum Chambers.
It’s a good sign of camaraderie and friendship when a group of lads can poke fun at each other, and at Arsenal it certainly looks like there’s great team spirit.
The Gunners began the season poorly, but after the international break, they’ve been in top form.
Ramsdale has been a revelation in goal since replacing Bernd Leno, while Smith Rowe is, alongside Bukayo Saka, one of the biggest Hale End success stories in recent years.
And the 21-year-old is certainly clever on the pitch, boasting an incredible footballing brain which has seen him hit such heights at such a young age.
Arsenal are next in action on Saturday evening when they head to Brighton in the Premier League.
