Wojciech Szczesny has had his words twisted and taken out of context recently in regards to his future at Arsenal.
The goalkeeper, who is currently enjoying his loan spell at Roma, recently said that he’d like to stay in Italy on loan for another season. However, the English media twisted this to mean that he didn’t want to return to Arsenal full stop, something the Poland international hit out at on his official Facebook account.
Now, in an interview with FourFourTwo, the 26-year-old clarified his comments and made it very clear that he has every intention of returning to Arsenal, whether that’s this summer or next.
“I didn’t mean it as a permanent transfer, but another one-year loan – sure,” he said.
“That would be probably the best option for both sides.
“I’m not sure if that’s what the clubs are discussing at the moment, but it makes perfect sense. I definitely like to be on the pitch every week, have that continuity of games played throughout the season. Roma is a good fit for me.”
On the town itself, he added, “The weather is much better here and people seem to smile a lot more. But London is London – it’s my town and I will always love it.”
Woj does seem to have his head screwed on right and what he’s suggesting does indeed make perfect sense. At the moment, he would be learning under Petr Cech and the former Chelsea man will still be in north London (hopefully) next season, if Woj does stay in Rome. If he feels as if it’s more useful to both teams having him there temporarily, it’s a good move, and he’s obviously enjoying it.
