Having started last season as Arsenal’s number 1, and subsequently lost his place to David Ospina, Wojciech Szczesny’s Arsenal future appeared in some doubt at times.
However, an FA Cup winners medal, and a pledge to stay at the club following the Wembley triumph, went a long way to quash rumours of his possible departure.
And now, following the signing of Petr Cech, Szczesny has welcomed the former Chelsea man to the club via his Facebook account:
The brunt of too much criticism in our opinion, Szczesny has never had an experienced quality goalkeeper to learn from during his time at Arsenal, so this might be just what he needs. And the post on Facebook is a nice touch.
It now seems more and more likely that David Ospina will be the one to depart, and the likelihood is that the Colombian wants to go to play regular first team football.
More on that when we have it.
