Szczesny issues statement


Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny released the following statement today after comments from his father were released in the English media:

"“I would like to apologise for the comments made by my father which have been used by both Polish and English media.“I’d like to make it clear that those were the views and opinions of my father and not mine, and although I respect his views I cannot accept them as I find them disrespectful to the club I truly love.“I have been at Arsenal Football Club for seven years now and I have always shown my full respect to the Club, Arsène Wenger, all the coaching staff, my team-mates and the fans.“I’ve always felt that I received great support from the manager and the fans and I am fully focused on getting back to my best.“I am proud to be a part of Arsenal and I see my future at this great club.”"

Szczesny has lost his place in the team recently and that was one of the things that upset his father. As well as this, he was not pleased with how he played whilst injured or just after recovering from an injury. His father stated that these were the main reasons for Szczesny’s dip in form this season and basically slammed the club and manager.

Wojciech released the above statement today following his father’s comments.
