Brentford manager Andy Scott, impressed with Wojciech Szczesny since he joined on loan from Arsenal, is ready to keep the goalkeeper for at least another season.
Szczesny, 20, has been in impressive form for the bees since joining in November 2009 as the above video compilation shows, with his best game coming against Leeds United after which he was awarded with the man of the match award.
But, with Arsenal’s current goalkeepers facing a lot of questions after a very disappointing season, it is not unlikely for Arsene Wenger – who last January described the Polish as one who will be #1 for his team – to recall the youngster in his attempt to find a proper goalkeeper for his squad.
And Scott, who hopes to have the services of the goalkeeper for next season, admitted chances for this to be true are very small.
We’ll always ask the question if we can have him next season. We’d like to think that the Arsenal goalkeeping coach who’s been at the majority of games has seen his improvement and they recognise what we’ve done for him and how it’s benefited him.
Whether another year out on loan is beneficial to his development we don’t know. We’d like to think we’ve shown we’re a progressive club who can be challenging at the right end of the league next year.
If that’s the right place for him to be we’ll think we have a chance. We’d love to have him back, but we understand the chances are very small.
