Wojciech Szczesny hits out at his father

Wojciech Szczesny has publicly responded to comments made by his father on the eve of the FA Cup Final, reports The Telegraph.

The incredible outburst appeared on the Polish goalkeeper’s Facebook page almost five months on from his dad’s scathing attack.

Szczesny’s father Marciej - a former goalkeeper himself for Legia Warsaw and the Polish national team - came out in support for his son, but criticised other members of the team following Arsenal's New Year’s Day fixture at Southampton.

Szczesny was at fault for the goals and was allegedly caught smoking in the changing rooms which lead to his omission from the starting line-up.

In January, Szczesny senior labelled Per Mertesacker a 'rhinoceros' for displaying similar agility to the animal and singled out the Arsenal defence, saying: “how these guys are playing is a disaster, but for some reason, nobody pays any attention to it.”


But Szczesny junior addressed the situation by distancing himself from his dad’s comments.

“Really shouldn’t be dealing with this one day before the Cup Final but my father leaves me no choice.

“I have not spoken to him in more than 2 years and just like everybody else I have had enough of his idiotic comments about The Football Club and The Manager I owe so much to! 

"Therefore please do not consider his comments as my shared view. Thank you for your understanding,” he wrote. 


Szczesny is sweating over his place in the team for the final with Arsene Wenger considering opting for Columbian David Ospina despite the Pole playing most cup rounds.

Should Szczesny be left on the bench, it is not inconceivable that he would have played his last game for the Gunners.
