Former Arsenal goalkeeper Bern Leno has spoken about his experiences during the All or Nothing documentary on Amazon about Arsenal last season.
The documentary, which was released on August 22, 2022, covered the 2021/22 season and gave supporters an insight into Mikel Arteta’s way of working.
But Leno, who joined Fulham last summer from Arsenal, says not everything captured in the documentary reflected what was actually going on behind the scenes.
In an interview with GOAL, the German international said:
“I was there. You know, it’s nice for the fans and for the people to see everything. But at the end of the day, I have to say this is not the reality. Some things were not 100% true.
“This season there were also a lot of problems with some players and everything. And when you were inside and then you watched the documentary and then you see like I think, no, I’m not sure about that.
“But I think that’s part of the commercial stuff.”

The 31-year old spent four years in North London after joining from Bayer Leverkusen in 2018 for a deal worth £22.5 million and was Arsenal’s first choice goalkeeper before losing his place to Aaron Ramsdale early at the beginning of the season.
Leno added that he had four ‘great’ years at the Emirates Stadium and thanked fans for the support he received even in difficult moments.
“I had four great years at Arsenal. I still have a lot of friends in the team and I had a very good connection with the fans. Even in difficult moments. They supported me. Even now, when I go to the city, a lot of Arsenal fans come and say thank you for your service.
“Last year was difficult at Arsenal, but in general the time was very, very good and very nice, not only for my career, but for my life as well.”
