The young Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is disappointed that Arsenal didn’t manage to win a trophy this season, but he thinks that after the Gunners atrocious start to the season, Third Place can be considered a success.
He is also very happy that Arsenal have started the transfer window well by buying Lukas Podolski, but he still thinks that some more new arrivals are needed to make sure that the Gunners are back up at the top next time around.
“It is massive,” he said on Arsenal.com. “I said before that I don’t think people believed we could finish third.”
“Although I wouldn’t have taken it before the season, given the circumstance and the start of the season I think we will take it and we are very pleased.
“You want to win trophies. Yes we are happy we managed to finish third but when you play for this club you want to win trophies and we didn’t do it this year so it is disappointing.
“But we already have one signing coming in and hopefully with one or a couple more we can challenge for a trophy next season.”
Szczesny is obviously right of course, but knowing Wenger as we do, the extra couple of signings will probably be Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby!
