Juventus goalkeeper, Wojciech Szczesny, has lashed out at Arsene Wenger for overreacting when he was caught smoking.
Szczesny, 28, spent 12 years at the Emirates before joining the Old Lady permanently last summer.
Throughout his time at the club, the Poland international star showed great potentials albeit with questionable off-field behaviour.
Szczesny was even caught smoking by his manager, something that didn’t go down well with the Frenchman.
Both have since departed North London yet the 28-year-old can’t seem to ignore those unpleasant memories.
“I feel like I am a regular guy. I used to smoke. I can’t do too much about it. I got fined by Arsene,” he told BBC Sport:
“I have massive respect for him but because it happened at the same time as I lost my spot in the starting line-up, it got massively overblown. I was 20 years old when I started playing in the Premier League.
“Maybe mentally I wasn’t quite prepared for it and that has earned me a reputation. But then you grow up, you mature. Now I am a husband and a father so life changes a little bit.”
Szczesny also opened up on his Arsenal regrets.
“I wanted to be at Arsenal for my whole career. It is the club I love. It is the club I still support. But then you grow up, you mature. I gave everything to play there.
“I regret not having done more there. I won two FA Cups and a Community Shield but I would have liked to win at least one Premier League title. But sometimes you have to think with your brain, not just your heart.”
Szczesny appears to have made the right choice leaving the Emirates.
After two impressive seasons at AS Roma, he moved to Juventus where he has cemented his place as the club’s undisputed first choice
