This statement by the shot-stopper has been well-received by the fans, who have been longing for a goalkeeper to call their own for a number of years.

In addition to the clean sheets, he has a save percentage of 72.9 per cent, which is among the best in the league.  He is also adept at playing with his feet, having completed an average of 1.65 defensive actions out of the penalty area every 90 minutes. In other words, he is excellent in his role as a sweeper keeper.
