After a disappointing period at Arsenal, goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has been getting his career back on track at Serie A outfit Roma this season. 

With Petr Cech and David Ospina currently battling it out to be the Gunners' No.1 'keeper, it's far from certain as to whether Szczesny will be handed a shot at redemption in north London. 

Throughout an interesting stint on English soil, questions were raised over the attitude of the enigmatic shot-stopper.

Despite his controversies, there are still fans backing him to return and eventually become a top goalkeeper for the club, but, as it stands, that's a long way off. 

With Roma currently sitting 13 points behind rivals Juventus at the summit of Serie A, it's unlikely that he's going to get his hands on any silverware this term, but what does he think about the race for the title in England? 

Szczesny wants Leicester to win the league 

Well, he has now revealed his thoughts and explained why, despite supporting Arsenal, he wants Leicester City to win the title. 

He's insisted that Claudio Ranieri's side are an 'example and an inspiration to everyone' and deserve to be crowned champions at the end of the season. 

"No one in football can explain the Leicester miracle," he told Sky Italia, as per, before Leicester beat Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Sunday.

"Even though I support Arsenal in the Premier League, I'd like to see Ranieri's side win it. They're an example and an inspiration to everyone. It's exciting to watch them play."

Leicester miracle 

Arsenal fans may not be too impressed with Szczesny's comments, but they probably won't be too surprised by them. Ultimately, Leicester's remarkable rise has been one of the most incredible feats English football has ever seen and it's not surprising that it has captured the imagination of so many.

With five games remaining, there really appears to be no way of stopping them at this stage. Sunday's victory over Sunderland really was a huge step for the club, who secured their place in next season's Champions League competition. 

Following the encounter with the Black Cats, as per BBC Sport, Leicester boss Ranieri insisted that his side must stay focused as the season approaches its end. 

"You make this job for the emotion you feel inside but it is difficult for me to tell you what kind," Ranieri said.

"The fans must continue to dream but we must be concentrated and focused."

"We have to stay calm, be focused, strong, solid and keep going. Today we made some mistakes. We still have to look at what is not right."
