Aaron Ramsdale has claimed that he received £17 from enraged Leeds supporters who threw coins at him during Arsenal’s 4-1 win against them in December.
The Gunners goalkeeper, who cost £24 million this summer, was commended for his’s***housery’ in provoking opposing fans by blowing kisses, winking, and celebrating in front of the Elland Road crowd.
And Ramsdale told Watford’s Ben Foster on his podcast that after being pelted with lighters, e-cigarettes, and coins, he brought the money back into the dressing room and nearly had £20.
‘There were some bottles and stuff thrown after the first (goal),… a few lighters, and I chucked them off to the side,’ he said. Then, all of a sudden, money started pouring in…
‘I’m looking around and there was one £2 – well, I collect £2s, so I took that. Then there’s quids and 50ps, so I’m picking them up and I put them by my towel, (then) at half time I put them in my towel, I run off and put them in the changing room.
‘Second half comes, a few more come, and then an e-cig comes on just before the penalty. So I’ve gone back in and I’m speaking to Kalvin Phillips, going “your fans must be loaded”.
