Arsenal legend David Seaman back training with club as he helps Under-23 keepers and youngsters to improve

DAVID SEAMAN has been pictured at Arsenal’s training ground passing on his expert knowledge to the Gunners’ young stars.

He’s been snapped alongside Aaron Ramsdale who has impressed since his £30million move from Sheffield United in the summer.

According to Goal journalist Charles Watts, Seaman is at London Colney carrying out ‘informal work’ with the U23s goalkeepers.

He’s been invited to the club’s London Colney base by academy manager Per Mertasacker.

But it seems as though the 58-year-old has also been working with Ramsdale after the pair were pictured smiling together.

Ramsdale has seemingly stolen the no1 spot between the sticks from Bernd Leno, having started the Gunners’ last three league games.

And Mikel Arteta’s side have won all three of the Premier League games the 23-year-old has played in, keeping two clean sheets in the process.

Now it seems he’s under the tutelage of one of Arsenal’s greatest ever goalkeepers.


Seaman played 490 times for the Gunners, keeping an impressive 201 clean sheets.

In that time he helped the club to win two Premier League titles and one old First Division trophy, as well as FOUR FA Cups and the one League Cup.

He was also capped 77 times by England.

And Arsenal fans have reacted with excitement to the picture of Seaman and Ramsdale, with one fan responding: “[He] should replace [Inaki] Cana.”

Cana is the current goalkeeper coach at the club, joining from Brentford in 2019 after being handpicked by Arteta.

Another praised Mertesacker’s decision to invite Seaman into training, saying: “Per is doing wonders for our youth.”

One Arsenal fan gushed: “David Seaman has such great energy. Arsenal should keep him very, very close.”

Fans will see if his advice to Ramsdale sticks when the Gunners travel to high-flying Brighton on Saturday.

After three defeats to start the season and the club being rock-bottom of the Premier League, three wins on the bounce including a North London derby mean there is now a cautious hint of optimism in the air.
