The father of Aaron Ramsdale, Nick Ramsdale, has recently given an explosive interview in which he heavily criticised the decision to drop his son in favour of former Brentford goalkeeper David Raya this season.

He said that Ramsdale 'did not have a clue' that he was going to be dropped from the starting eleven - additionally, he also criticised Raya's performances in the Premier League for the Gunners, saying that he 'has not pulled up trees so far'.

Ramsdale has made just four Premier League appearances for Arsenal so far this season, conceding four goals and keeping a single clean sheet. He has not featured in England's top division since the Gunners defeated Manchester United by a score of 3-1 back in early September - since then, Raya has taken his place.

What did Aaron Ramsdale's father say about his position in the squad?

Speaking on the Highbury Squad podcast, Ramsdale Sr said: "We did not have a clue [Ramsdale was going to be dropped]. I didn't have a clue, our family didn't have a clue, Aaron didn't have a clue that he was not going to carry on playing. All of a sudden, he's not been played.

"You just have to look at it personally and I'm probably saying too much, but Aaron is going to be the cup goalkeeper, and David Raya is going to be the main man unless something happens, an injury or a sending-off. And Aaron's got to live with that and he is living with that even though he's not been told it. By anybody.

"Squads evolve all the time, nobody is going to be there forever. David Raya has not pulled up trees so far, let's say he's not going to. Even though the way it's been done, in my eyes, it's been wrong."
