Really shouldn't be dealing with this one day before the cup final but my father leaves me no choice. I have not spoken...

There appears to be trouble in Szczesny camp. Wojciech, the Arsenal goalkeeper, has launched an attack on his own father over comments made to a Polish newspaper about Arsene Wenger and his future at the club.

Szczesny, who is in a battle with David Ospina to make the starting eleven for Arsenal in their FA Cup final encounter with Aston Villa at Wembley, took to Facebook to defend his manager.

The 25-year-old was dropped by Wenger after a woeful performance against Southampton halfway through the season, after which he was reportedly caught smoking in the showers of the Arsenal dressing room, as per The Mirror.

Since then, Szczesny has only featured in FA Cup games, but since Saturday's tie is a final, that could change. The question is will Wenger stay loyal to the Pole or stick with established number one Ospina? There is no questioning the loyalty on the other side.

Earlier this week, Maciej Szczesny, father of the Arsenal goalkeeper, told Polish sports paper Sportowy Ring his son had been treated 'unfairly' by Wenger and that he should leave Arsenal.

His son has now hit back, stating: "Really shouldn’t be dealing with this one day before the cup final but my father leaves me no choice.

“I have not spoken to him in more than 2 years and just like everybody else I have had enough of his idiotic comments about The Football Club and The Manager I owe so much to! Therefore please do not consider his comments as my shared view. Thank You for your understanding!”
