When Kenny Greene becomes GK – ‘He is a man of principle’
The former Manchester United winger, who was also at United and Chelsea, will become the club’s second-choice goalkeeper.
GK John Ruddy is the man to fill in for Ruddy at the moment, after being dropped for Saturday’s Champions League qualifier against Porto.
However, it is unlikely that Greene will be in the starting line-up at the Allianz Arena, as Ruddy’s knee injury means he is unlikely to be available for the match against Portos.
“It is unfortunate that John Ruddies knee injury does not allow him to play this weekend,” manager Gianni Infantino said.
“However, Kenny is a good and hard-working goalkeeper and it is not something we would be willing to risk playing John Riddies knee for.”
Meanwhile, Infantinino has added that he is looking forward to the opportunity to work with Ruddy in the future.
“I am very grateful for John’s contribution to this club.
He has been at the club for 20 years and he has a very good reputation.
I will always be a fan of John and his work,” Infantini said.
The Italian’s record against Portuguese sides is also impressive, as he won three consecutive league titles with Porto between 1995 and 1998.
But despite the success, Infante is confident that his team’s season will be a success.
“It’s very important to win and I believe that we can do it,” Infante said.
“The Champions League will be our goal and we will try to win it.
This is an important game for us as we want to show the world what a fantastic club we are.”
