Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny’s father has criticised Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger over his transfer policy, injury-tackling policies and the way he treated his injured son.
Speaking to przegladsportowy.pl before their World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Ukraine, revealed that his son will not be able to play for his country, and then criticised Wenger for forcing him to play while he was injured. The man, himself, is known for his anger as he once punched Roberto Mancini in the head!
“Wojciech had two serious injuries,” he said. “He played with one in April and May. He shouldn’t have agreed to play that time but the coach insisted. Wenger was playing with the young man’s good health and Wojciech agreed foolishly.
“Last April and May Wojciech did not train the whole week and than a warm up on Friday and played the match on Saturday. He was naturally more susceptible to minor injuries and his form was going down.
“In my opinion Mister Wenger ‘bugged out’ a lot in April and May. I don’t blame the young man who went along with his coach, his current lack of form is a result of those two months.
“In addition to that in August there was an metatarsus injury after which he played almost instantly. After seven weeks out Wojciech trained for just seven days and played the match. How on earth can he be on his highest form?”
Now, Szczesny has been dropped and replaced by Lukasz Fabianski, and his father believes that Wenger will now have to answer some questions.
“Wenger already started to look for the scapegoat,” he continued. “It is not the way the boss should behave. His transfer policy is failing, there are a lot of injuries which is also significant. The guy is wrong permanently.”
