It is, as far as many are concerned, beyond doubt that Wojciech Szczesny has the talent – but does the goalkeeper have the attitude to cut it at the top?
It seems to be Szczesny’s last chance at Arsenal, with the club signing Petr Čech from Chelsea this summer.
Čech will surely come in as first choice but the signing provides Szczesny with a mentor that he has never had, and he will get his chance sooner or later. What he has to do is take himself a bit more seriously and work with unrivalled motivation and focus.
The teachings and competition that Čech could provide should spur Szczesny on, and the Polish goalkeeper is already in the gym before pre-season begins on Monday. This could be a new start for Szczesny, and it is good to see him focussed ahead of the new season.
