Seems things are finally starting to come together for Arsene Wenger and in more ways than one. The Arsenal manager says reserve goalkeeper, Vito Mannone was free to leave the club in the off-season and he was expecting the Italian to do just that before the season started. Luckily for Wenger, Mannone stayed and Arsenal are the better for it.
Arsenal could be in huge problems ahead of the final game of the season against WBA, as Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is struggling with a knee injury and is still in doubt for the weekend game.
The Pole was one of the most impressive players of the season for Arsenal, whereas simply putting it, Fabianski was NOT! He had a bad performance for the Gunners in the few chances he got, and seemed to be very eager for the season to get over and leave for a club where he could actually have some decent playing time.
The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger just found another possible candidate for the goalkeeper job which will open up at the club once Manuel Almunia and the Polish goalie Lukasz Fabianski will leave the club as expected.
The Pole wants to leave the club because he hasn’t been able to make the team lately, and now Wenger might have a go at Marseille’s goalkeeper Steve Mandanda, who just expressed his wish to join the Premier league “one day”
“Which league attracts me most? The Premier League,” he told French radio.
“One day I would like to discover another championship, so why not the English league?”
