It has been confirmed that Wojciech Szczesny will spend a second successive season on loan with AS Roma.
The Poland international made 42 appearances for the Serie A outfit last season impressing between the sticks as the Giallorossi finished third behind Napoli and Juventus.
It’s long been rumoured that Szczesny would return to the Stadio Olimpico even though Roma pushed ahead with the summer signing of Brazil international goalkeeper Alisson from Internacional.
Speaking about his return to the Italian capital, Szczesny said, “I am very happy after a good season I had a chance to come back and I’m glad that the coach wanted me.
“I hope that we will improve what we have built in the last championship.”
Szczesny hasn’t played in the Arsenal first team since the 2015 FA Cup final after being replaced by Petr Cech as the club’s first-choice keeper last year, and rejoins Roma despite the fact they have already signed Brazilian stopper Allison this summer.
Good luck to him, we still have a szczoft szczpot in our hearts for Wojciech. It also means that David Ospina’s departure is now basically impossible, so the Colombian will understudy Cech again this season.
