Following Runarsson’s mistake against City, Arteta said the club were going to support him.
“He [Runarsson] hasn’t played a lot of games for us,” Arteta told Sky Sports.
“He’s just adapting to the league, and that’s it. We all make mistakes and we have to support him.”
However, Arteta surely knows Runarsson is not ready to compete in the English top flight.
It’s not often that goalkeepers of Romero’s quality are available, so the Gunners should not let this opportunity pass them by.
