Arsene Wenger keeps faith in Lukasz Fabianski, “He is a top-class goalkeeper”

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was not moved by Lukasz Fabianski’s horrible error at Wigan which technically ended all the Gunners’ hopes for the Premiership title.
It wasn’t the first mistake made by the 25-year old during his Arsenal career, as he was under fire after last season’s F.A. Cup game against Chelsea as well as after this season’s Champions League against Porto.
Wenger, however, seems determined to stick with the Polish, as he explained how the 25-year old is a very intelligent man, a conscientious guy and also sensitive. When asked if he is too “sensitive” for the English Premiership, Wenger replied with a determined “no”, adding how he is a top class goalkeeper and how one day he will be proven right.
I think it would have had long-term consequences for Lukasz if we had gone out against Porto. Mental consequences, because he is a conscientious guy, very intelligent but, as well, sensitive.
You can turn sensitivity to an advantage because he can feel and see things that others don’t see but, as well, when you have guilt, it can be a disadvantage confidence-wise. He is a top-class goalkeeper. I repeat that many times and you will see that one day, I am right.
