REDMAYNE SHINES AGAINST THE GUNNERS
While the Sky Blues lost 2-0 in front of more than 80,000 fans at ANZ Stadium on Thursday night, it could have been much heavier if not for the 28-year-old gloveman.
Redmayne made a string of excellent saves, including a penalty to deny England international Danny Welbeck a goal in the second-half.
WENGER’S REDMAYNE REGRET
Redmayne had a two-week trial under Wenger in North London as a 16-year-old, with the Gunners boss opting not to sign the teenager at the time.
After watching his performance on Thursday night, he admits he might have blundered in not offering Redmayne a contract.
“I don’t remember — it’s such a long time I’m at Arsenal I do not remember all the trialists,” Wenger said.
“If he was with us, we made a mistake.
“At the end of the day I’d say their goalkeeper was man of the match.”
COULD REDMAYNE BE SYDNEY’S NO.1
With last year’s grand final hero and first-choice keeper Danny Vukovic no longer at the club, Redmayne has the chance to nail down the jersey if he keeps performing.
“I’ve always had a lot of faith in Andrew Redmayne,” Head Coach Graham Arnold said.
“I was very happy for him, especially against a team that he idolises.”
