Szczesny: Trophies are coming

SoccerNews in English Premier League, FA Cup 25 Apr 2012


Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny believes his side now have enough experience to win trophies and end their seven-year wait for silverware.

The Gunners last tasted success in the 2005 FA Cup with a win over Manchester United but Szczesny believes his club are in good shape to break that run next season.

“When you play for this club you want to win trophies,” Szczesny told reporters.

“This club deserves trophies and we didn’t get any this year so it’s always disappointing.

“I think the quality is there. We all know it – we have the quality to fight for trophies in Europe and this country. It’s just consistency that has been a bit of a problem for us this year.

“But the team’s getting more experienced and hopefully we’ve got the experience to win trophies next year.”

The north London side suffered a difficult start to their Premier League campaign, slipping as low as 17th following heavy defeats to Blackburn Rovers and Manchester United.

Wenger’s men produced a stunning second half to the season and now look in good shape to finish third in the league.

Szczesny, however, is not taking anything for granted and said he hopes the club can sign off for the season with three wins from their final three games.

“I think if you look over the last couple of months we’re probably one of the best teams in the Premier League,” he said.

“So we’ve got three games to go and we need to win all three and we’ll finish third.”
