'He could be a good choice if I got a red card' - Leno reveals Arsenal team-mate who’d make the best keeper

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can make a good 'stand-in' goalkeeper if the club ever needed one during a match, according to Bernd Leno. 

The Gabon international is the club's leading top-scorer and seems to have impressed the German keeper in training at the other end of the pitch. 

In an interview with the club's official website, Leno was asked which outfield player would do the best job in goal and he picked his captain.

"I think it's Auba," he said. "I don't really know about his quality as a goalkeeper - I don't know who could be the best - but I saw that many times Auba would make some good saves after training in free-kick challenges.
 
"He was flying very well. I was very impressed and he could be a good choice if I got a red card and we made three changes already.
 
"If I wasn't a goalkeeper, I would play as a center back. First of all, I don't like running! At center back, you don't run as much as anyone else. I also like to challenge, to tackle and I think that this position suits me because I'm a bit taller like a defender."

Leno has grown into a fan favorite ever since joining from Bayer Leverkusen back in June 2018, impressing with his level of consistency.
