Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has once again been snapped smoking in public which will certainly concern manager Arsene Wenger, The Sun reports.

Szczesny has already been at the heart of another smoking storm after he reportedly lit a cigarette in the showers minutes after he handed Southampton the victory at St Mary’s with two horrendous errors (via The Guardian).
The Polish international was subsequently dropped and didn’t feature in the Premier League for the remainder of the campaign, but Szczesny remained our cup keeper all the way to the final as we retained the FA Cup.
However, if the boss initially dropped Szczesny for his ill-discipline, he certainly won’t take too kindly to this latest episode which highlights a deeper issue at the club.

Arsenal transfer rumours
Jack Wilshere and Szczesny have both previously been caught smoking in public while Mesut Ozil was also snapped purchasing some shisha pipes (via the Mirror).
Wenger doesn’t have a reputation for being a serious disciplinarian, he tends to trust players to make the right decision and lead a professional life. However, his natural method is clearly not working and it’s time the boss got tough on the usual culprits.
Having this week committed his future to the club despite talk persisting regarding a move for Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech (via the Mirror), Szczesny’s future may be decided for him by Wenger and it could reside elsewhere.
