On Monday the news that Petr Cech was (finally) an Arsenal player broke and fellow goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is looking forward to learning from him.

The Pole took to his official Facebook to express his excitement over our new signing, saying, “Petr Cech, welcome to Arsenal FC! Delighted to have a chance to learn from one of the best GK’s in the world!”

Although it’s looking likely that David Ospina – who replaced Szczesny in the starting lineup this season – is on his way out of the club, Szczesny has made it very clear from the get-go that he has no intention of leaving, no matter who we bring in.

He wants to stay and, as he says, learn from one of the best.

Having a goalkeeper at the club who Szczesny can follow and look up to can only be beneficial for the youngster and I can see this being fantastic for his career.

I’m glad Wojciech seems to be viewing the opportunity the same way and not huffing off at the first sniff of competition.
