Wenger: Szczesny improving rapidly

Published Add your comment

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is impressed with the vast improvement made by goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

The Polish stopper has fought off competition from Manuel Alumnia, Lucas Fabianski and Vito Mannone to seal the No.1 jersey for the Gunners, and has produced a string of assured performances this season.

And Wenger, who put faith in the 21-year-old to end Arsenal problems in front of goal, says the Szczesny is improving all the time.

“It's difficult to say how much but what is for sure is that he has improved - especially in his confidence and his decision-making,” Wenger said.


“I think his determination to come for crosses is calm but commanding. Many aspects of his game he has improved and I expect more to come because he is a young goalkeeper.

“I think he has convinced people that he is at the level to play for us, along with Fabianski and Mannone who I believe are at the level to do that too.

“There is a good competition going on there.”

In the mid of Arsenal's worst start to a Barclays Premier League campaign, Szczesny was faultless between the sticks for the Gunners, with his penalty saved from Antonio Di Natale helping Arsenal qualify for the Champions League early in the season, while his save from Emmanuel Adebayor in the north London derby helped draw further attention to his merging talent.
