The reason Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger allowed Wojciech Szczesny leave Arsenal on loan last summer has been revealed.
Corrire dello Sport via the Metro reveals that Arsenal’s decision to loan out the goalkeeper last summer was as a result of a disagreement between the goalkeeper and the Gunner’s goalkeeping coach Gerry Peyton.
The polish international who is currently having a tough time in Italy was caught smoking immediately after Roma’s loss to Barcelona and was subsequently dropped from the starting xi.
It was not the first time the goalkeeper had been caught in such an act as he was also caught with a cigarette in the dressing room just after the Gunner’s loss to Southampton in January. The 25 year old was fined by Arsene Wenger and also lost his place in the Gunner’s starting xi but it seems those punishment didn’t deter the Polish international.
The goalkeeper was then allowed to join AS Roma on loan last summer after the arrival of Petr Cech, it was thought that the signing of the Czech Republic international pushed the Szczesny out of the Emirates but it has been revealed by Corrielle dello Sport that the bad blood between himself and Gerry Peyton led to Arsene Wenger deciding to let the 25 year old leave the Emirates on a temporary basis.
