Arsenal goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale, has revealed that he has been playing with specially adapted gloves since after the World Cup.
Ramsdale said he has been playing with a broken knuckle for Arsenal.
The England international has been in outstanding form for Arsenal this season as they seek to win their first Premier League since 2004.
They are currently five points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.
Ramsdale, a second-choice England goalkeeper, was in Qatar but did not play a single match as Gareth Southgate preferred Everton’s Jordan Pickford.
“I’ll tell you something about those gloves, if you look at the two middle fingers there’s no gap,” Ramsdale said on The Fellas podcast.
“I broke my knuckle at the World Cup, so I’ve had to play since the World Cup with gloves like that.”
