In an exclusive interview the Arsenal goalkeeper, on loan at Roma, talks about his love for his parent club and how his spell in Italy has helped on and off-field
Per Mertesacker recently got in touch with Wojciech Szczesny to invite him to the FA Cup final and the Arsenal squad’s end‑of‑season get-together. The gesture was genuinely appreciated. Loan players can easily feel out of sight and out of mind. The Polish goalkeeper would have gladly made the trip back to London but there is a clash with his last game of an accomplished season for Roma. It may well be his farewell to the Giallorossi after a two-year loan that has made its mark for both club and player and he is sure to get a warm send-off.
When he first arrived in the Italian capital the Romans had enough trouble trying to merely pronounce his name. Two seasons on and he is held in high regard for his authoritative performances and upbeat personality. Please excuse the simplistic formula to rely on a taxi driver as a barometer for local sentiment, but you will not find many who do not agree with the Romanista who turned from his wheel to proclaim affectionately that not only is Szczesny an impressive player, he is also “a good boy”.
