Szczesny wants to stay with Arsenal for life

Wojciech Szczesny has insisted that he wants to remain with Arsenal for his entire career.

The 22-year old Polish goalkeeper has been in North London since he joined the youth academy in 2006 and is planning to stay for at least another ten or so years.

"My ambition is to get a bigger contract at Arsenal. I admire players like Paul Scholes and Paolo Maldini, the ones that spent their whole career at one club," Szczesny told The People.

"I dream of a similar scenario. I hope that when we sit down to have a chat 14 years from now it will be about my two decades at Arsenal.

"My biggest problem is not enough focus in the games without huge stakes. I can't find the spark in myself. But when the stakes are high, I'm in top gear."
