Wojciech Szczesny says that he’s determined to win a trophy in 2014 after describing 2013 the best year of his professional life.
The Pole was given something of a kick in the arse by Arsene Wenger when he was dropped for compatriot Lukasz Fabianski, but when injury presented him with a chance to regain his position, he took it with both hands.
A string of fantastic displays at the tail end of last season has been backed up by a strong campaign thus far, and Szczesny is hoping that his, and the club’s, ambitions can be fulfilled at the business end of the season.
“I believe last year was by far the best of my career, on and off the pitch,” he said.
“What I am trying to do now is make sure that 2014 will be even better and that I can finally get my hands on a trophy. That’s something that has been missing, not just for me but for nearly all the players at Arsenal.
“When you play for such a big club, personal ambitions don’t really matter because you want to deliver for the fans and for the club.
“And that is definitely the aim for all of us this season.”
