Arsenal Had To Buy Petr Cech – Wojciech Szczesny

Reports are out claiming that AS Roma goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny doesn’t resent Arsenal’s signing of Petr Cech.

The Poland international is currently on-loan at Roma.

“I’m not stupid – if you buy one of the world’s best goalkeepers it’s not to keep him on the bench,” he told

“I actually wanted to stay and challenge him for the spot but after a conversation with Wenger it was obvious that I should be looking for new opportunities.”

Asked whether Arsene Wenger could have kept faith in him rather than buying Cech, Szczesny added: “Are you joking? For that little money? Of course he had to!

“If someone offered him Cristiano Ronaldo for a good price, he would have to buy him. The manager has to think about the club and its fortune.

“Why would Wenger not do it? Because Wojciech Szczesny, who grew up at the club, is here? Be serious here – Wenger has to consider the overall good of the club first.”
