It wasn’t so long ago that flapping goalkeeper after flapping goalkeeper could be found hesitantly floundering between the Emirates goalposts.
Thankfully for Arsenal fans Wojciech Szczesny has brought an end to Arsenal’s goalkeeping anxieties but one name that certainly doesn’t fill Gunners’ supporters with confidence is that of Lukas Fabianski.
While many in North London lost faith in Flapianski long ago, it appears that Arsene Wenger is to demonstrate his typically belligerent faith in misfiring players by offering the Polish number two the chance to rebuild his career with a loan move.
The Mirror is reporting that the Arsenal manager is set to loan out Fabianski next season with the hope that he will return to the club with renewed confidence, and hopefully for Arsenal fans vast improvements in temperament and concentration. The need for Arsenal to posses a reliable deputy to the impressive Szczesny will magnify in the summer as one time first choice ‘keeper Manuel Almunia looks set to leave on a free.
One issue where Arsene Wenger has traditionally not been so supportive of his players involvement is when it comes to international football. Last Summer Wenger and his sports science staff talked Jack Wilshire out of participating in the Under 21 European Championships on grounds of the increased risk of an injury to the young midfielder.
Wenger is quoted by The Mirror as stating that he is “losing confidence” that Wilshire will have recovered from the somewhat ironic foot injury he suffered earlier in the season in time to compete in this summers European Championships.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
