Arsenal keeper Szczesny still on learning curve

Wojciech Szczesny may have seized his chance to become Arsenal’s number one, but the Polish international is well aware he still has a lot to learn.

It was, though, not that long ago that the 21 year old was on loan at League One Brentford before he ousted Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski in the pecking order.

"I still need to prove myself at this club, to work hard every day and prove myself as a number one," said Szczesny, who insists the last-minute mix-up at Wembley which cost Arsenal the chance of Carling Cup glory in February is very much in the past.

"I am going to keep working hard and doing my best. I am satisfied, but you can always be much better.

"I can improve on every single aspect of my game. There is no finished article in football. I am only 21, so I try to improve every aspect.

"I am just focusing on doing my job properly and if my manager and team-mates appreciate it, then I am happy."

Szczesny added: "People still say I am over confident, but I am a big critic of myself.

"If I watch a game the day after I played it, I look at the mistakes I have made and I try to learn from them.

"I speak to the coaches and we analyse every little mistake and it's all to make me improve.

"There is a lot of room for improvement, I believe."
