Polish goalkeeping legend Jan Tomaszewski says Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger "didn't tell the truth" about the future of goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.
The 67-year-old revealed that the Frenchman told Poland manager Adam Nawalka that Szczesny would have featured more in the year leading up to next summer's European Championship.
But the arrival of Petr Cech from Chelsea will almost surely mean that the Poland international will be on the bench next season as well.
"In January I spoke to [Poland manager] Adam Nawalka and he said that Arsene Wenger had told him that if Szczesny worked hard in training he would play again soon," Tomaszewski is quoted as saying by the London Evening Standard.
“It turned out that he didn't tell the truth.
I'm sure that when Szczesny said that he was going to stay at Arsenal, he didn't know that Cech was going to come because Wenger didn't tell him about his plans.
"Szczesny should leave, because it will be waste of time for him, if he stays."
