Wojciech Szczesny revealed his aim to help Arsenal achieve success ‘in the years to come’ after signing a new long-term contract to keep him at the Emirates Stadium.
The 23-year-old Poland international, who joined the Arsenal Academy in 2006 from hometown club Legia Warsaw, has made 121 appearances for the Gunners since making his debut in a League Cup tie against West Brom in 2009.
Szczesny ended last season on a high note with four clean sheets in the final six matches and he has started this campaign in a similar fashion as Arsene Wenger’s side currently lead the Premier League table by two points after 11 games.
He will now remain with Arsenal for several more seasons and he expressed his wish to help end the club’s current eight-year trophy drought as quickly as possible.
Szczesny said on the club’s website: “I am very pleased to have signed a new contract. Arsenal is like my family and I’m so happy to be committing my long-term future here.”
He added: “I’m so proud to be an Arsenal player and am looking forward to helping our club towards success in the years to come.”
Wenger said: “We’re very pleased Wojciech has signed a new long-term contract. I have always believed he is an extremely talented player, with excellent reflexes and good mental strength.
“He continues to grow and improve all the time too, so he has the potential to be even better. He can be an important part of Arsenal Football Club for many years to come.”
