Arsenal’s Szczesny – “I Want To Be In The Stands With The Away Fans One Day”

published :


Arsenal shot stopper Wojciech Szczesny gave a personal interview for the Arsenal official website yesterday and guess what the Poland International had to say about Arsenal and their fans.

“I see my future at arsenal football club, I would actually like to one day be in the stands with the away fans.”
He is the kind off players that Arsenal need. Young players who are determined to play for arsenal and give their best every-time they step out to play. Szczesny is already one of the better keepers in the country now and he is still 22. By the time he reaches 27, which is considerably a normal age for a keeper to be in the prime of his career he will surely be a world class keeper.

Here is the full transcript of the interview:

“Ever since I signed for this club, I’ve become an Arsenal fan,” Szczesny told Arsenal Player.
“It feels like it’s more than me just playing and doing my best on a Saturday afternoon. I feel like I have a much bigger part to play at this club. It means that little bit more to me.
“I think there’s a lot of players in this team that are genuine Gooners. You’ve got people like Carl Jenkinson, there’s Jack Wilshere, Emmanuel Frimpong – a lot of young players who really feel it’s the biggest honour they could have, to play for this club.
“I think that’s very important for the future.”

“I think I improve with every single game,” he said. “I get the experience that is needed for a young keeper, so it’s important for me to play as many games as possible.
“I don’t think about playing for any other club. I see my future at Arsenal Football Club. I committed to coming here at the age of 16, not to then leave at the age of 24. That’s not how it works for me.
“I think coming over to England at the age of 16 was the most important decision of my life and probably the best one, to date.”

Szczesny is 12 games away from reaching a first milestone in his career – a century of games for Arsenal. The Gunners never really had a promising goal keeper after mad Jens left and the Polish lad is the ideal keeper to take over the spot and probably reach the levels of David Seaman who currently holds the record for most number of appearances for Arsenal as a goalie with 564 games to his name. Szczesny is far from that figure but he has time on his side and is growing in stature.
