Arsenal number one goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny has said that he does not mind bowing out to Gunners number two goalkeeper Lukas Fabianski for the FA Cup final against Hull City at Wembley on May 17th just so long as Arsenal wins.
Fabianski was the hero in Arsenals semi-final win against Wigan Athletic saving two goals during a penalty shootout after the match was still 1-1 after extra-time.
When asked if he would mind if Fabianski played in goal for the final as he has for every other FA Cup match Szczęsny told the Daily Star: “I’m an Arsenal fan and I just want us to get the trophy. It’s not about me playing.
“Lukas has been doing really, really well and he was our hero at Wembley so I was happy for him.
“For us its important to get a trophy and hopefully we can appease everyone at the club.
“It’s up to the manager. I think Lukas has done really well and deserves a lot of credit. I would love to play, obviously, but it’s the manager’s decision.”
Besides the Cup Arsenal is still battling for a Champions League spot and the Polish keeper feels that their experience will help them pull through.
Szczęsny said: “I think it will be vital. Hopefully the experience of having a good run-in during the past couple of seasons will help us to get through again.
“Almost every game is a cup final for us now. And we will have to get a result every single time we play and wait for Everton to drop points.
“Against West Ham we showed we can respond. In the league we hadn’t won in four games so we needed to get back to winning games.
“It doesn’t have to be beautiful. I would take four of five wins like that from now until the end of the season. As long as we get three points it doesn’t have to be beautiful.”
