Arsenal is doing good this season after a horrible start that saw them sitting at the bottom of the table after a few games. However, they are now in fourth place and will look to play in the UEFA Champions League next season, and it’s all thanks to their summer signings, mostly their new number one, Aaron Ramsdale.

Aaron Ramsdale hauls in £17

Ramsdale appeared in a video on Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster’s YouTube channel The Cycling GK. He talked about Arsenal’s away game against Leeds United and revealed how the fans were trying to get to him.

After the first goal, there was some bottles and stuff thrown, a few lighters. Chucked them to the side. The next thing you know, money started coming on. I’m looking around and there was one £2, and I collect £2s, so I took that,” Ramsdale said.

Ramsdale revealed how much he earned from the away trip to Leeds United

The Englishman revealed that he also collected more denominations of money and put them in his towel. He picked all of it up and took it all in his towel to the dressing room. Ramsdale had enough time during halftime to count it all, and revealed that he had a conversation with Leeds United and England star Kalvin Phillips to joke about the Leeds faithful.

Then there’s quids and 50ps, so I’m picking them up and I put them by my towel, and at halftime, I put them in my towel, I run off and put them in my changing room. So I’ve gone back in and I’m speaking to Kalvin Phillips, like, ‘Your fans must be loaded.’ It was about £17 I pulled off the pitch,” the goalkeeper added.
