Second choice goalkeeper Fabianski threatens to leave.

Arsene Wenger’s second choice goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is threatening to leave the London club if he doesn’t get more appearances in the team. Fellow Pole Wojciech Szczesny is currently the first choice goalkeeper at Arsenal and also at Poland’s senior national team squad, leaving Fabiasnky dwelling on the sidelines.

Lukasz was played in the last two friendly games the Polish national team had to play against Korea and Belarus, and after the double the goalkeeper expressed his wish to go to EURO 2012 with his national team.

“If my situation doesn’t change I’ll consider asking for a move. If I want to go to Euro 2012, the only way I can persuade the coach to take me is by playing well on a regular basis.”, said Fabianski in The Sun

Fabianski lost the contact with Arsenal’s first team after he was badly injured and had to spend some time off the pitch. Being now fit, the goalkeeper is currently sidelined and only managed to play one game this season in the Carling Cup match against Shrewsbury. Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger doesn’t like the situation at all. He would like to keep both goalkeepers at the club just to make sure he won’t have to go through goalkeeper problems once again.

Szczesny:”As a kid I always dreamed about exceeding my Dad”

Arsenal’s first choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny declared that it would be a dream come true for him to surpass his father’s call-ups for the senior Polish national squad. Szczesny senior, Maciej Szczęsny got 7 appearances for the Polish national squad between 1991 and 1996, and now the junior is after his father’s record.

Arsenal’s goalkeeper got his first call-up to the national squad in 2009 for a series of friendly games against Romania and Canada, and he made his first appearance in the second game coming in as a second half substitute. Since then Wojciech managed to become Arsenal’s first choice goalkeeper and he gathered 6 appearances for Poland’s national team.

He will probably be able to match his father’s record next month when Poland will play Italy in a friendly game, thus officially becoming the best goalkeeper in the Szczesny family.

“It will be a big success,” Wojciech told Arsenal.com.

“As a kid I always dreamed about achieving the same things as my Dad did but it doesn’t mean that my career stops then.

“Leo Beenhakker, a famous coach who used to be in charge of the national team, told me that when you stop believing you are good that’s when your career stops.

“Even though I will surpass my Dad I am going to keep working hard and get as many caps as I can for Poland.”

The Polish youngster made his breakthrough at Arsenal during the 2010-2011 season, when taking advantage of Fabianski’s and Mannone’s injuries and of Almunia’s lack of form he managed to become the first choice goalkeeper after he started the season as the 4th choice.

Arsene Wenger must really be happy with himself for giving the Polish international goalkeeper a chance to shine after the excellent performances he had in the start of this season, and Arsenal’s goal is secured as long as he will be able to have the same kind of performances throughout the season.
