Former England international and Premier League star, Danny Mills has urged Arsenal manager, Unai Emery to feature goalkeeper, Bernd Leno, instead of Petr Cech in their Europa League final clash against Chelsea on May 29 in Baku.
Mills wants Emery to play Leno and drop Cech, who has been tipped to take up a newly-created Sporting Director role at his former club, Chelsea.
Emery’s men reached the Europa League final after defeating Napoli in the semi-final encounter, while Chelsea dumped Frankfurt out of the competition.
Speaking on who Emery should drop between Leno and Cech ahead of Arsenal’s clash against Chelsea, the former Norwich and Leeds United Defender, he said:
“You start to call into question the player’s integrity, his ability to perform.And I don’t think that’s in question, but the problem is if Cech makes a mistake, if something happens in that game against Chelsea. Go back to the start of the season where I think they played against Manchester City and he [Cech] tried to play out from the back and he gave it to some of the Man City players”.
He added that he wouldn’t play him in that situation but instead he would go for Leno.
