Wojciech Szczesny says he’s hoping Arsenal can win the title this season, even if it makes him look like ‘a bit of idiot’.
The Polish international is currently on loan with Roma, but is obviously following what’s going on back in London by the miracle of television. With Petr Cech one of the team’s top performers, he quipped that an Arsenal title win might make him look bad, but that he’s hopeful his temporarily ex-teammates can go the distance.
“I watch all Arsenal games, of course,” he said. “And I hope they will be champions, honestly. I spoke to Theo Walcott yesterday and told him they have to win it, but it’s gonna make me look like some kind of idiot.
“They never won it when I was there and now, ‘Oh look, Szczesny is gone so it’s obvious what the problem was’. I’m joking, but maybe it’s true after all. I was there for four seasons, there were other goalkeepers before me and they didn’t win the title either.
“Of course it stings a bit, but I won’t say it hurts because I’m an Arsenal fan and when I watch the games I always want them to win.
“I really hope they will be champions.”
That makes all of us.
