'I don't want to talk about him' - Arsene Wenger's blunt response on disappointing star Wojciech Szczesny

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was in no mood to discuss Wojciech Szczesny after the loss to Southampton.

Arsene Wenger as clear on one player he did not want to discuss after the loss to Southampton - Wojciech Szczesny.

The Pole put in a disappointing display in goal as Arsenal lost 2-0 away from home, making two errors leading to goals in the defeat.

Quizzed about him after the game, manager Wenger told a press conference: "I don’t want to talk about [him]."

He went onto confirm Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina, healthy again after injury, will play in the FA Cup at home to Hull City at the weekend.

The Frenchman's refusal to comment on Szczesny may have been to protect the goalkeeper from the spotlight, or simply a case of him biting him tongue regarding his true feelings.

The Pole was excellent in the recent win at West Ham, but really let his standard slip against Southampton.

Curing his inconsistency is key to his development, but with threats to his position from Ospina and Martinez, his position is far from assured if he puts in any more performances like the one at St Mary's again this season.
