Arsenal goalkeeper Matt Turner thinks he can put up a good fight for a place in the starting XI on the PL side.

 

What did Matt Turner say?

The American player insists that he is not worried that he took the gamble by joining the PL team. Matt made the switch to Arsenal this summer from the New England Revolution and is confident he made the right move. Matt has been a regular goal scorer for the United States but is not guaranteed to be the undisputed No. 1 at this year’s World Cup in Qatar, with Steffen also in contention.

The American believes he can get regular playing time with the Gunners and boost his hopes of being the first choice to stopper shot with USMNT. Opportunities like this for US players are few and far between, according to Matt Turner. Matt wouldn’t say he’s worried or it’s gambling. The USMNT goaltender said it was a clear progression in his career.

Getting his foot in the door abroad is much easier said than done. For the last three seasons, Matt has played well in MLS and this was the first concrete offer he had. Consistent MLS play did not guarantee him a starting XI for Team USA. He needed to shake it up to take his game to the next level and playing PL with these guys has already shown him some massive improvements.

Matt Turner says they should think about their career. According to the American, decisions cannot be made based on one World Cup. Injuries happen and sports careers are finite. Turner wanted to take this game as far as he can, so being able to represent a club like Arsenal is a dream come true.

 

Matt is ready to fight

Matt Turner is looking to oust Ramsdale as the undisputed starter in the north London team, adding that Arteta told him he was here to challenge for a starting role. According to Turner, they’re not in the business to just accept being second.

They all want to fight for time on the pitch. So the mentality he wants for Matt is to push Aaron Ramsdale, push himself and push the guys in the locker room. There are a lot of young guys here, and Turner is the older player at 28. So Turner could be someone these guys can rely on for advice on and off the field.

Every step Matt has gone through in her career has been a big step. Matt Turner reveals he’s going from high school to Uni, then Uni to MLS, then MLS to the national team, and now to the PL. The players that Turner is with every day are very talented. They provide consistency, intensity and different intelligence in how they play the game. The other important thing is the standards that they hold for them every day. Coaching staff and players.

According to Matt, sometimes the learning mode can be a bit more casual in the US. Maybe what the American was used to in the revolution was a little more random. It was a small adjustment, but the American goalkeeper was hungry for a new challenge and that’s definitely what he has.
