"It's a shame" - Club legend disappointed with Arsenal's star decision to leave the Emirates


Arsenal legend David Seaman says "it's a shame" to see goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny leave the club.

The Poland international left the Gunners to join Serie A champions Juventus.

He is expected to take over from one of the best goalkeepers ever, Gianluigi Buffon, when the 39-year-old retires at the end of next season.

"It's a shame," Seaman told Goal.

"I don't like quality goalkeepers like that leaving Arsenal.

"Arsenal obviously have Cech, Ospina is still there, and Emiliano Martinez is coming through who is doing well.

"I think it's good for Wojciech because it means that he's going to be playing at a big club in Juventus – but there's a certain issue of getting ahead of [Gianluigi] Buffon there!

"I don't think there's a place for him [at Arsenal] – Wenger has two experienced goalkeepers now so if he'd stayed at Arsenal he would've ended up playing reserve team football.

"You can't compare him [Szczesny] to Cech, because he [Cech] has been there and done everything, he's won everything – with Wojciech, he's at an age now where he needs to be playing because it's easy to stay as a number two, then it becomes too easy. You need to be testing yourself."
