USA’s Matt Turner is the funniest player in Arsenal’s squad because of the Americans, says Aaron Ramsdale – he’s remembered telling Kevin De Bruyne to ‘relax the dog, it’s a dogfight out there’
USA and Arsenal goalkeeper Matt Turner has been crowned comedian at Arsenal by teammate Aaron Ramsdale…for his American bents.
The England keeper couldn’t keep a straight face when explaining why Turner was the funniest member of the Gunners locker room.
Ramsdell noted in part with NBC Sports That his friend is “unintentionally” funny.
When asked: “Do you think you’re the funniest guy on the team?” Ramsdale, who was hailed by Arsenal fans for his ‘controversial home’ after Leeds fans were liquidated in 2021, replied: ‘No, tell the truth’.
He was asked again: “Who is the funniest guy on the team?”

“Turner died, unintentionally,” his response, laughing, was. He said that “only American tendencies” were the cause.
Ramsdale went on to tell the story of Turner speaking to Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne during an FA Cup match.
And he continued, “Kevin De Bruyne went to talk to the referee and Matt Turner’s response was, ‘Relax dog, it’s a dogfight out there.’”
Ramsdell burst out laughing as interviewer Ayu Akinwoler tried to contain him.
The Englishman then apologized to Turner before the joke could continue.
“I mean, he’s going to put up a fight,” Akinwoler added.
“He’s going to a man of war,” replied Ramsdell, as they both laughed, “It’s a dogfight there man.”
The goalkeeper couldn’t help but laugh again.
