Szczesny apologises to Arsenal, Wenger

21 March 2013 17:14

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has apologised for the comments made by his father, who blamed Arsene Wenger for the shot-stopper's form.

The 22-year-old recently lost his place in the Arsenal starting 11 due to what Wenger described as 'mental fatigue'.

It prompted the player's father to complain to a Polish newspaper over the manager's treatment of his son.

The Poland international has issued a statement on the Arsenal website distancing himself from his father's comments.

"I would like to apologise for the comments made by my father which have been used by both Polish and English media," Szczesny said.

"I'd like to make it clear that those were the views and opinions of my father and not mine, and although I respect his views I cannot accept them as I find them disrespectful to the club I truly love.

"I have been at Arsenal Football Club for seven years now and I have always shown my full respect to the club, Arsene Wenger, all the coaching staff, my team-mates and the fans.

"I've always felt that I received great support from the manager and the fans and I am fully focused on getting back to my best.

"I am proud to be a part of Arsenal and I see my future at this great club."

Fellow countryman Lukas Fabianski replaced Szczesny in goal for Arsenal's 2-0 Champions League win over Bayern Munich, and kept his place in the for Saturday's English Premier League trip to Swansea City.
