Arsenal ace will consider January move

Published Add your comment

Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabiański believes he can overthrow his compatriot Wojciech Szczesny as the club's No.1, but admits he will consider leaving the club in January if his situation doesn't change.

The 26-year-old Polish stopper returned to first-team action for the Gunners in the Carling Cup victory over Shrewsbury Town, after a spell of almost nine months on the sidelines with a shoulder injury.

"That injury brought me back to the beginning," Fabianski explained. "It hurts, because I was No.1 and I lost that place not through poor form but through injury, which didn't let me play for 9 months.

"I have to fight from the beginning now and I think I can win it. Wojciech [Szczesny] wouldn't be here now if it wasn't for that incident in January. I can't complain though, that's football."


Arsene Wenger has publicly stated that Szczesny is now his first-choice stopper, which means Fabianski may be forced to leave the Emirates Stadium because he believes his Euro 2012 ambitions are being blighted by a lack of regular football at Arsenal.

"I know that if my situation doesn't change by January, I will be thinking about it [leaving Arsenal]," he continued. "I'd have to, because I want to go to the Euros.

"That's the only way I can convince the national team coach – by playing well and regularly.

"[But] I don't want to think about this now, because we have couple of months until the transfer window. Until then all I can do is work hard in training and take the chances I get."
