Wojciech Szczesny sees Arsenal future despite father's comments

The goalkeeper apologised yesterday

Wojciech Szczesny insists he is not looking for a move away from Arsenal after falling out of favour with Arsène Wenger.

The goalkeeper was dropped for the second leg of Arsenal's Champions League tie with Bayern Munich last week, with the manager claiming the 22-year-old had been "mentally affected" by playing too much.

Szczesny was then put on the bench for the league win at Swansea, where Lukasz Fabianski kept a second consecutive clean sheet.

But he said: "I've always received great support from the manager and the fans and I am fully focused on getting back to my best. I am proud to be a part of Arsenal and I see my future at this great club."
