David Ospina: Living in London is a nice challenge


Arsenal reserve goalkeeper David Ospina says he fully recovered from the thigh problem he suffered in the World Cup Finals against Brazil.

The 26-year-old joined the Gunners during the summer transfer window but is yet to feature in Arsene Wenger's side as he now makes himself available for the French manager.

The Colombia international also revealed that it didn't take him long to settle down at Arsenal thanks to the help of Spanish-speaking team-mates like Santi Cazorla, Nacho Monreal and Mesut Ozil.

"I feel very well and already settled," he told the club's official website.

"At Arsenal you can really focus on your job since the club provides with anything you may need. Once settled, I am trying to make the most of this opportunity I've been given.

"London is great. It's a beautiful enjoyable city in which there are many things to do.

"Besides, there are very good schools, which is a positive thing for my daughter. Living in London is a nice challenge for both my career and life.

"It helps a lot having Spanish-speaking team-mates. I remember that during my spell in Nice no one was able to speak Spanish with me.

"That made things a bit more difficult for me. I am glad I have Spanish-speaking footballers around.

"Physically I feel strong and one hundred per cent recovered.

"I was injured when I arrived to the team and that's not an ideal situation. Injuries don't help at all when you are trying to settle in, but thank God now I am in a good condition."
