Arsenal star training for return

Published Add your comment

Arsenal's star goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is preparing for a return to Arsenal, with the Polish international desperate to comeback 'stronger than ever'.

Szczesny hurt his finger in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 match with Barcelona, and has not played for Arsenal since. But the 20 year old is still working on being match fit so as soon as his injury heals he can return to the squad.


“I work in the gym everyday, working on my lower body and my distribution as well which will be very good for me,” Szczesny told Arsenal TV Online. “I’m not getting bored, I can still do a lot of stuff.”

While the injury was disappointing for Szczesny, the goalkeeper is concentrating on his comeback for Arsenal.

“There’s nothing you can do when it happens - you have to move on, work hard on your fitness and make sure you come back stronger than ever.”

Szczesny is hoping to be back in the Arsenal squad within six weeks of being sidelined. “There’s not a lot of joint damage, the tendon is ruptured. So basically I have to keep my finger in a splint for four weeks and let the tendon heal. From then it will be a couple of weeks before I can be back in the squad,” he said.
