Former-Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has admitted that it was not a hard decision to leave the Gunners this summer.
Speaking to The Sun as reported by the Daily Mail, the new Swansea keeper said he's focussed on his future at the Liberty Stadium and has already 'forgotten' his time at Arsenal. The Polish international spent seven seasons at the Emirates Stadium, and joined the Swans this summer after his Arsenal contract expired.
The 29-year-old made just 32 league appearances for the Gunners in seven years, and last season was largely restricted to cup appearances as international compatriot Wojciech Szczesny kept the number one jersey.
Fabianski was keen for first-team football, and with Wenger eyeing David Ospina, the Polish keeper decided to move on. He replaces Michel Vorm at the Liberty Stadium. Ospina has been signed by Arsene Wenger to back-up Szczesny.
But Fabianski has admitted he's already done thinking about his past in north London, preferring instead to focus on the future.
Not a tough decision
"It was not hard leaving Arsenal," Fabianski said. "I have already kind of forgotten about it. It's behind me."
He did go on to say that he enjoyed many 'wonderful years there' but it's telling that he didn't have to think twice about leaving when given the opportunity. Apart from a brief period during the 2010-11 season when he was first-choice, Fabianski played a bench role to Szczesny throughout his entire career.
A talented keeper in his own right, he probably became fed up with waiting for his chance, especially as Szczesny himself is not the most commanding of number ones.
But Szczesny retains Wenger's trust and with another keeper in the mix, Fabianski calculated it would be worth dropping down the Premier League for a more regular chance of action. Let's hope he makes it count.
