Arsene Wenger has hinted that Lukasz Fabianski will continue in goal after his solid display against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.
Having not played for over a year the Polish stopper kept a clean sheet against one of Europe’s best sides, and the manager says there’s been a change in the player’s approach which bodes well for his future.
“He has changed a lot, there has been a complete mental transformation in Lukasz’s attitude,” he told Arsenal Player. “He is more vocal, has more authority and mentally he absorbs the pressure of the game much better.
“He has a huge talent, which we know all about. Sometimes to go out of the game for a while helps people to mature and think about their own game. If they really want to become a better player, they think, ‘How can I become better’.
“He works on all the aspects of his game.”
It was something of a gamble to include him after such a long spell on the sidelines, but it paid off on Wednesday night at least. It seems that Fabianski is now the man with the jersey to lose and compatriot Wojciech Szczesny is going to have to work hard to get his place back.
True competition? We shall see, Swansea may tell us more, but for now it’s in Fabianski’s hands.6,047 views
