Could Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang play as an emergency goalkeeper? Bernd Leno thinks so.
Our No 1 took part in a Reddit AMA on Thursday and when he was asked which outfield player would do the best job in goal, he was quick to praise our leading goalscorer's reflexes.
"I think it's Auba," he said. "I don't really know about his quality as a goalkeeper - I don't know who could be the best - but I saw that many times Auba would make some good saves after training in free-kick challenges.
"He was flying very well. I was very impressed and he could be a good choice if I got a red card and we made three changes already.
"If I wasn't a goalkeeper, I would play as a centre back. First of all, I don't like running! At centre back, you don't run as much as anyone else. I also like to challenge, to tackle and I think that this position suits me because I'm a bit taller like a defender."
