Not happy to be out with an injury, Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny confessed he will be back and stronger than ever after he fully recovers from a finger injury.
Speaking to Arsenal’s official website, the Poland International explained it is not easy to bounce back from an injury as contrary to a lost game it means you’re out of action for weeks so you cannot just look forward to the team’s next game. Asked about his recovery, the 20-year old said it’s a challenge but added that he is confident of returning even stronger.
Saying on Twitter that he will know when he will be back in action next week, Szczesny said that he would have never expected to feature so much for the Gunners this season as he admitted that he is doing quite well to deal with all the pressure.
On his recovery and his season, the goalkeeper said:
If you lose a game, you can pick yourself up as you know you have another one in a few days and need to recover – but when you are injured, you cannot just miraculously come back, you know it will take some time to get fit and you won’t actually have a game for a few weeks, so that is the biggest challenge.
But I am confident I will get through it and come back stronger than ever. If you told me before the season started that it would go like this, I probably would not have believed you.
I was confident I could live up to expectations, but I did not expect it to happen as fast as this.
I am enjoying it – and it is not like I was thrown in at the deep end and could not cope with it, because I think I am dealing quite well with the pressure.
