Polish goalkeeping hero Jan Tomaszewski believes that Wojciech Szczesny will not play another game for Arsenal this season and that he must look to leave the Emirates Stadium on loan in a bid to save his career.
The Gunners stopper has been out of Arsene Wenger’s first XI since his New Year’s Day antics at Southampton.
Szczesny was widely blamed for both of the Saints’ goals in the 2-0 loss before irking Wenger by smoking in the shower block of the changing rooms after the game.
Summer signing David Ospina has since been the Arsenal No. 1, while the Poland international has been fined £20,000 for his actions and confined to the bench.
Tomaszewski – who is regarded as one of his nation’s best ever goalies – has been watching the situation, and believes that the country’s national team’s manager, Adam Nawalka, must do all he can to help Szczesny get away from north London this month, with a loan deal the best option:
“It seems to me that Adam Nawalka (Poland’s national team coach) should go to London to find [him] a way out of the situation, because from what I know, Wojciech will not play again until the end of the competition,’ he is quoted by the Daily Mail.
“Wojciech should look for a loan. He won’t lose anything, he will continue to be bound by a contract with Arsenal, but will be able to count on regular gametime.”
