Arsenal fans bemused by Szczesny departure


Arsenal have confirmed that Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has joined Italian champions Juventus for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old joined Arsenal in 2006, and made 181 appearances for the London club before joining Roma on loan in 2015.

The stopper has spent each of the last two seasons with Roma, but will now turn out in the colours of Juventus after moving to the Serie A giants ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.

It does seem to be a strange move when considering that Petr Cech is approaching the final stages of his career with the Gunners, and many Arsenal supporters are bemused that the club have sold a goalkeeper that is seemingly approaching his best years.


Deemed not good enough to turn out for Arsenal, Juventus have obviously seen enough over the last couple of years to bring the Pole to Turin.

Szczesny’s Arsenal exit was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon, and it would be fair to say that the majority of Arsenal fans were not pleased with the news.
