Top Gunner does not want to leave
Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny believes he will remain at the club for as long as his services are required.
The Polish international, who has racked up 13 appearances for his country, has witnessed fellow goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski keep two clean sheets in Arsenal’s last two games but has remained intent on staying loyal to the Gunners.
Szczesny said to Sky Sports: “I am too happy to go somewhere else. I believe in the philosophy of the club and that Arsenal will start to win again.
“I have a debt to pay here for the club, I owe them. I just do not want to go anywhere else. As long as they want me here, there is no ‘somewhere else’, and i have a contract until June 2015.”
Szczesny joined the Gunners’ youth set-up in 2006 and went on to sign his first professional contract at the club in 2009.
Following an impressive loan spell at Brentford, the Polish goalkeeper was soon making a name for himself in the Arsenal first team.
Since making his debut for the North London outfit in 2009, the keeper has gone on to make 100 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners, keeping 36 clean sheets.
There had been recent speculation in the press that Szczesny may look to leave Arsenal if he was kept on the bench by Fabianski or if Arsene Wenger was to bring in the likes of Pepe Reina or Victor Valdes, two goalkeepers the club have been heavily linked to.
When asked about Arsenal’s disappointing campaign, Szczesny added: “It is halfway through March and we have lost everything. There are still 10 matches left to save the club against humiliation of all times.”
“It would be a disaster not to be in the top four and without Champions League next year. We have the 10 most important games in our careers. We are going through the most difficult time since I came here.”
With Arsenal enduring yet another season without a trophy, their focus is now be on qualifying for the Champions League, which in itself is a challenge with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea looking threatening.
