Was it just coincidence that more women ask Arsenal’s goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny questions on his latest Twitter interview? We’ll never know, but it made up for an interesting session, in which Szczesny might establish himself as Arsenal’s womaniser.
Q: “If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 items would you take with you?”
A: “I'd take the missus, I'm not going to lie. Also a football and definitely my iPhone, just for music.”
Q: “Who would play you in a movie of your life?”
A: “Definitely Matt Damon! Theo [Walcott] sent me a picture where he looked just like me. We basically brothers!”
Q: “What is the last movie you watched?”
A: “Oh no, that's embarrassing! It was Love Actually. The missus made me watch it, I swear!”
Isn’t that sweet? However there were also football questions.
The 23-year-old backed up Bayern Munich’s keeper Manuel Neuer by saying that the German international is the best in the world. Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini might agree with that, reporting to be preparing a bid for the German.
Recently the Polish international got a long-term contract extension, which will establish him as the number one in Arsene Wenger’s starting line-up. Transfer rumours that his colleague Lukasz Fabianski might want to leave add to this. But it seems that Wojciech thinks he has still a long way to go.
He displayed himself as a humble guy answering a question how he celebrates a clean sheet: “I try not to celebrate them now. I enjoy them but don't celebrate really.”
Asked what is best save was Szczesny said: “The one at West Brom away from a deflection. That was technically the most difficult.”
It is interesting that he chose that game, because Arsenal only recorded a draw despite his great save. Szczesny had played better games like the Champions League game against Olympique de Marseille in mid-September, where he was awarded with man of the match or his recent Premier League game against Cardiff City, where he was tested with four crucial shots but was able to enjoy a clean sheet.
