Szczesny hopes for Arsenal future

by Setanta Staff , 24 March 2013

Wojciech Szczesny feels that he still has a long-term future at Arsenal despite losing his place to Lukasz Fabianski.

The Polish goalkeeper was left out of the Gunners squad for their Uefa Champions League trip to Bayern Munich and was on the bench for the Gunners’ 2-0 Premier League victory over Swansea City.

The 22-year-old accepts that he will have to move if he has lost the confidence of manager Arsene Wenger, but says he is keen to stay and win back his place.

Szczesny told Gazeta Wyborcza: "Physically, I can imagine myself at a different club, yes, but mentally, absolutely no. I'm too happy here.

"What guarantee do I have that I will win trophies somewhere else? Arsenal will win things again, I trust the club's philosophy, I have a debt here.

"I don't want to be anywhere else. My contract runs out in 2015. I have played my 100th game for Arsenal and I hope to play hundreds more."

Szczesny concedes that the campaign has been tough for Arsenal, but he hopes both he and the club can end the season on a positive note by finishing in the Premier League top four.

He added: "I know that Arsenal should not play as badly. We're not even through March and we have lost everything. We have only nine games to save the club and not humiliate ourselves.

"Arsenal have been in the Champions League for the past 16 years and it would be horrible not to qualify this time.

"Those are our most important games in our careers. It's our hardest time since I got here."
