Arteta’s Selection is based on Politics not performance – Leno


By Sportgister Ng

Bernd Leno has hit out over his treatment at Arsenal and the “politics” which left him with no option but to “get out of here”.The goalkeeper, 30, left the Gunners after four years this summer to join Premier League rivals Fulham in a deal worth up to £8million.

Leno was first-choice shot-stopper throughout much of his stint in North London but lost his place to Aaron Ramsdale early last season following the Englishman’s arrival from Sheffield United.

Leno did not mask his frustration at being dropped and, speaking last autumn, insisted the reasons behind his loss of No.1 status were not related to his performances on the pitch.

In a fresh verbal barrage aimed at Arsenal, he has doubled down on those comments in no uncertain terms.Thierry Henry bursts out laughing as Tottenham named Champions League dark horses”When I realised that it wasn’t about performance or quality, I knew I had to go,” the German told BILD Sport, per Sportbuzzer. “During the preparation, I saw that it’s not about performance, it’s just about politics. It was clear to me:

I have to get out of here.”Leno appears to have hardened his stance against Arsenal after previously declaring it had been a “pleasure” to walk out at the Emirates in a heartfelt message to fans. He wrote on Twitter : “Hey @Arsenal fans, it’s time to move on for me. It’s been a pleasure to be part of this great football club for 4 amazing years. Thank you very much for your support. Also a big thank you to my team mates and the staff behind the team. I’m looking forward to see you soon
