He became after Dirk Krüssenberg and Heribert Macherey the third goalkeeper in Bundesliga history to keep a clean sheet in his first three Bundesliga games.[5] When he played on 13 September 2011, at the age of 19 years and 193 days, against Chelsea in the 2011–12 UEFA Champions League group stage he became the youngest German goalkeeper to ever to play in a Champions League match.[6][7]

Arsenal[edit]

On 19 June 2018, Premier League club Arsenal announced that Leno had signed a five-year contract, £22.5 million, pending 'the completion of regulatory processes'.[12][13]

International career[edit]
