An upset Arsenal fan today admitted that he’ll miss not fully understanding exactly how he feels about Wojciech Szczesny, as the goalkeeper officially departs the club on a permanent basis.
Speaking shortly after confirmation was made of the Polish international’s move to Juventus, Gunners supporters Hugh Reemer revealed that he’ll be sad to say goodbye to a player who, after 8 years at the Emirates, he is still unsure is actually any good.
“It’s weird, saying goodbye to someone who has been with the club for such a long time. Even though he’s been on loan for the last two year, it’ll still be odd not knowing whether I think he’s a liability or the best keeper at the club,” said the 37-year-old bank manager, adding that he doesn’t who at the club will, if anyone, will be capable of stepping up and filling Szczesny’s role.
“He was really a once-in-a-generation kind of footballer. One who, in my heart, is just great but actually, on the pitch, can be so bad he makes your eyes bleed. I’ll miss him, and I think other Arsenal fans will too.”
