West Ham keeper Fabianski understands Martinez leaving Arsenal for Aston Villa

West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski can understand Emiliano Martinez leaving Arsenal for Aston Villa.

Fabianski also came through the Arsenal youth system before leaving for Swansea City.

"Obviously we left the same club so you can find a lot of similarities between us," said Fabianski.

"Emi is 29, which is exactly the same age I left for Swansea.

"Even though I'm not in contact with him, when you listen to his interviews he speaks a lot about having a chance to play week-in, week-out and that was basically the same idea when I left Arsenal."
