Bernd Leno must be patient - David Seaman

Arsenal Legend David Seaman has advised the club summer signing Bernd Leno to be patient as he plans to replace Petr Cech in Arsenal goal.

Bernd Leno joined Arsenal from Bayer Leverkusen during the summer transfer window and the German is yet to be handed his debut by Arsenal coach Unai Emery has he preferred Petr Cech in goal.

Seaman has however backed Unai Emery's decision to stick with Petr Cech and reveal it would have been wrong for Emery to throw Bernd Leno into the starting eleven immediately.

'Just because he cost a lot of money does not mean he goes straight into the team,' Seaman said

'He has to be patient. Petr Cech has done nothing wrong in goal.'

'Ok, so he is adjusting to playing with the ball from the box. But he has been able to contribute to the team and has down nothing to cause him to be left out.'

Seaman also added that Leno's absent from the team also means he has the chance to learn from Cech and see how the game is played in EPL.

'This could be a learning curve for him, you have to be patient in football.. I know,' He added

'I had to be in the past when I was playing. Leno has to bide his time.'

Do you think Unai Emery need to bring in Leno quickly into the starting eleven?
