Martinez: I did consider leaving Arsenal

Emiliano Martinez admits he considered leaving Arsenal before this season.

Martinez has kept three successive clean sheets with Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina injured.

"I spoke to my agent and my family about it and they said: 'let's wait one year to see if you get the opportunity, don't rush it'," said Martinez. "Arsenal is one of the biggest clubs in the world so I am in no rush to leave.

"I know I'm young and I need to wait for my opportunity. When that comes, you need to be confident and show the manager that you can play. I think I'm doing that."
