Lukasz Fabianski vows to fight for Arsenal’s No1 spot
Lukasz Fabianski vows to keep fighting to win back his spot as Arsenal's number one goalkeeper from Wojciech Szczesny
Lukasz Fabianski has vowed to keep fighting to win back his spot as Arsenal’s number one goalkeeper from Wojciech Szczesny.
The Poland international replaced his compatriot as Arsène Wenger’s first choice between the posts towards the end of last season but Szczesny has returned to start every game for the Gunners so far this term.
And the 28-year-old is now determined to prove his worth to the Arsenal boss and win back his first-team spot this term.
“This season is massive for me personally because I am getting older and I really want to play on a regular basis,” Fabianski told Arsenal Player. “I want to be the number one keeper, that is my aim for the season.
“I want more games, I have been competing for a few years now to get that No 1 spot. I’m not going to lie, I really want it.”
Reflecting on his run in the Gunners’ first-team last season, Fabianski continued: “I was at my best physically, and mentally as well. I felt really confident, and still do.
“I put in a lot of work and changed my whole training schedule. I took care of my body in a totally different way and that helped me a lot – you could see that.
“I helped the team come back to a strong position and compete for a Champions League spot. Based on that, I don’t want to give up – I want to keep fighting for my place.”
