Arsenal star Per Mertesacker’s message to Lukasz Fabianski

Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker wishes his former teammate Lukasz Fabianski the best of luck at Swansea City.

Lukasz Fabianski has officially left Arsenal. Signed from Legia Warsaw in 2007, the Poland international goalkeeper was expected to be a big hit in the Premier League.

However, Fabianski’s career took a different path and he ended up being largely a squad player at the Gunners.

In his seven years at the Emirates Stadium, Fabianski could only make 32 appearances in the Premier League.

First Manuel Almunia and then Wojciech Szczesny were preferred to him by manager Arsene Wenger, and Fabianski did not make his case to be the team’s first-choice goalkeeper by making some major mistakes.

Eventually Fabianski joined Swansea City on a free transfer this summer after his contract with Arsenal came to an end.

It appears that the 29-year-old is enjoying himself at the Welsh outfit and is relishing the prospect of featuring in the English top flight with the Swans next season.

Fabianski took to social networking site Twitter on Thursday to let his fans know how things are going for him at Swansea.

Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker, who is currently on World Cup duty with Germany, replied to one of his posts, wishing his former teammate the best of luck for the future.

Mertesacker joined Arsenal from Werder Bremen in the summer of 2011 and has established himself as a first-choice centre-back.

Much will be expected of the 29-year-old next season when Arsenal resume their quest for Premier League and Champions League glory.
