Wojciech Szczesny hasn’t had the best luck between the sticks recently, having lost his place to David Ospina last season and now having to compete with Petr Cech for a starting spot as well. He is clearly far more lucky in love however, with the Arsenal star taking to Facebook to announce his engagement to his long-term girlfriend.
The Polish shot-stopper is clearly smitten with his now fiance Marina Luczenko, and can regularly be seen on social media declaring his love for her. It was fitting therefore that social media was where he revealed his engagement and upcoming nuptials.
Szczesny is a top quality keeper, and has shown in the past that he has what it takes to be a world class goaltender. Minor lapses in concentration have prevented him from already reaching his potential, and is the reason he is likely to have to settle for a spot on the bench behind Petr Cech this upcoming season.
He is still young though, especially for a goalkeeper. He has plenty of time to blossom into a truly great goalkeeper, and hopefully he does so at Arsenal.
