After Arsene Wenger revealed that Wojciech Szczesny had been playing with a shoulder injury for the final months of the season, and had required pain-killing injections to help him through games, there were suggestions that the Pole could be a doubt for his homeland’s Euro 2012 campaign.
Looking to nip those suggestions in the bud, the shot-stopper has confirmed that, after a week’s rest, he’s in fine fettle and is aiming to play in Poland’s next warm-up game against Slovakia.
“Everything is fine with my shoulder, on Tuesday I report for training,” he told local press.
“I’m healthy and there’s no need to do any injections. Wenger’s words were true, for about five weeks I’ve played injured, but it hasn’t got worse during this time.
“For a week I’ve been resting and the pain has completely passed. I think it was a bigger scandal in the media than a real issue. Now I’d really like to play a match against Slovakia.”
The young keeper, who has apparently inherited his father’s willingness to shoot from the hip in interviews, also spoke to this month’s Polish version of Playboy giving an insight into some of the dressing-room badinage doing the rounds at the Emirates.
Asked for his views on Chelsea’s moronic shinpad-wearing, celebration hogging, cunny of a captain, Szczesny revealed that the Arsenal team regularly use ‘John Terry’ as a synonym for an ugly girl.
“At Arsenal it [the name John Terry] is another word for an ugly girl.
“If there’s a girl around that we don’t really like, we use it as a smokescreen/codename: ‘Have you seen John Terry recently?’
“He’s terrible. I recommend this, it really works!”
While suggesting any girl looks like John Terry is a little crude, unless of course you’re talking about this lass, we suggest any offended persons give young Wojciech the benefit of the doubt on this occasion. You can only imagine the questions he was having to field from Playboy…
