Arsenal football club, Manager, Mikel Arteta has praised German goal keeper, Bernd Leno for his heroic performance in Arsenal’s Carabao Quarterfinal win against Liverpool.
Bernd Leno had an excellent performance through out the match and he stopped two spot kicks to hand the Gunners a 5-4 shoot-out win over Liverpool in the League Cup on Thursday.
“Bernd Leno was really good. When we needed him we had him. You need a top individual performance to win at Anfield, I really have belief in Bernd. I know him really well. We didn’t want Emiliano Martinez to go but it was probably the right thing. To come here and play with the determination and courage is a big step forward for the team. They are on the right path.” Arteta stated after the win.
Leno’s performances, unsurprisingly, earned him the Man of the Match award.
Joe Willock netted the winning penalty for the North London side after Leno saved from Divock Origi and Harry Wilson, sending Arsenal to the quarter-final of the competition.
