£75,000-A-Week Defensive Star Confirms He Will Be At Arsenal

 Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has pledged to return to Arsenal next season and fight for his place in the team.

Szczesny, who was farmed out on loan to Serie A giants Roma in the summer, was dislodged from his number one role between the sticks in the middle of last season after a series of shocking mistakes and, David Ospina took his place.

And the arrival of Petr Cech in the summer also meant Szczesny was demoted to the role of a third-choice goalie and this prompted a move to Roma, as the Italian side was a viable option for the 25-year old to earn enough game time.

The Poland international shot-stopper has been impressive for Rudi Garcia’s side, but he still dreams of returning to Arsenal to reclaim his place between the sticks.

“I saw Arsenal as my whole life and I do not hide that is still my dream,” Szczesny admitted to Sky Italia.

“For me it is a family, I owe so much to those people that if I were to be given a chance I would play for them again.

“With Wenger there is no love or hate – he’s always been fair with me.

“Nine months is a long time in football, things can change from week to week.”

While Szczesny has been performing admirably for Roma, Cech has also been in stupendous form for the Gunners – saving Arsene Wenger’s side on numerous occasions.

It is left to be seen how Szczesny aims to dislodge Cech when he returns at the end of his loan spell in the Serie A.
