Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has defended his goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. The Poland stopper has not featured for the last two matches before the international break, dropped for Lukasz Fabianski against Bayern Munich and then watching on from the bench at Swansea, decisions which brought outspoken comments from his father.
"I haven't spoken to him (about his father's comments), but I believe he responded very well. There is a not a lot more to say," the Gunners boss told a news conference.
"We are in a competitive world, he has played 100 games for this club and at his age that is absolutely fantastic.
"For the rest, we have ups and downs in our form and we have to fight against that, that is what he said, basically.
"Wojciech has a great future. He is a very young goalkeeper. You do not find very many goalkeepers at his age who have the experience he has already, that is why I believe he has a great future, but he lives in a world where competition exists.""
