Lukasz Fabianski has admitted that he has no problem in helping Tottenham to the title even though his Arsenal ties mean that he should know a lot better than that.
Swansea face Leicester after Arsenal play Sunderland on Sunday and with Tottenham five points behind and not playing (again) until Monday night, they could have the chance to close the gap should Fabianksi and his Swans do to the Foxes what they do to Arsenal with annoying regularity.
“It’s all right, I can’t say it’s tricky,” Fabianski said of the upcoming game.
“I don’t think they [former Arsenal team-mates] would stop talking to me if we help Spurs. But if there is a favour it will be done as a team and as a club.
“We just have to go out there and do our best to get a result,” he added.
Arsenal’s hopes of winning the title might be alive mathematically but in reality, they are gone, and it’s all about chasing down City and Tottenham and securing third place at the very least.
Fab’s comments probably won’t be received too well amongst Arsenal fans. We like to hear our former players speak as if they are still our players.
Once a Gooner, always a Gooner? Not when it comes to Fabianski it seems.
