David Ospina: Arsenal ended the season in best way possible

Arsenal

Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina is content with his first season in the Premier League.

David Ospina is determined to make the most of playing for Arsenal after declaring himself content with his debut season at the London club  in an interview with Pulzo.

The Colombian will feature in this summer's Copa America and after Saturday's FA Cup triumph over Aston Villa, Ospina will now meet up with his international team-mates in preparation for the tournament.

“I’m very happy and content,” Ospina told Pulzo.

“We have completed this season in the best way possible.

“We have achieved some of the objectives we set ourselves, like direct qualification for the Champions League, as well as finishing with the FA Cup win.”

Ospina now finds himself first choice at Emirates Stadium, ahead of Wojciech Szczesny just a year after the Polish goalkeeper pushed Lukasz Fabianski out of the club in search of playing time.

He added: “The experience has been very positive, in truth. Now I have to keep making the most of this fantastic opportunity I’ve been given.”

However, Ospina sat out the FA Cup final on Saturday as Szczesny was given the nod by Arsene Wenger.

In order to complete the season in the best possible way in England, you ought to be lifting the Premier League title at least.

Winning the FA Cup and finishing third in the league is not something to turn your nose up at but when you consider Arsenal and Ospina's expectations at the start of the season, they were probably fulfilled.

Arsenal now need to push further in the league and have a stronger campaign in Europe. Being knocked out of the Champions League at the expense of AS Monaco this term gave Wenger and his players the wake-up call they needed to go on a run in the league a secure a place in next season's group stages.
