David Ospina has revealed that while he wants more game time, he’s happy at Arsenal.

- Arsenal goalkeeper hints he could stay after massive FA Cup win
Ospina recently claimed that he had asked to leave Arsenal this summer as he wasn’t satisfied with the playing time, or lack thereof, he was getting.
Despite playing second fiddle to Petr Cech all season and only making 13 (now 14) appearances overall, the goalkeeper was picked for the Gunners’ FA Cup final clash against Chelsea on Saturday.
Speaking after the 2-1 victory, the 28-year-old suggested that he could be persuaded to stay if he can get more game time.
“I am happy, but I want to have more continuity,” he explained.
“We will have conversations (about my future) to make those decisions, it would be difficult to repeat a season like this.”
The Colombian was widely reported to have agreed a deal with Turkish club Fenerbahce just recently, which obviously isn’t the case if he’s open to the possibility of staying in north London.
While Ospina does have two years left on his contract, it would be foolish to keep him. Although he made four saves in the FA Cup final to keep Chelsea’s goal tally at one, he also should have saved the one Diego Costa did score, which basically sums Ospina up.
He’s not good enough.
