Goal has quoted former Arsenal goalkeeper Szczesny, currently of Juventus, as labelling Robin Van Persie ‘extremely arrogant’ and that his ‘big career’ would not have ended so soon had he remained at Arsenal.
According to the Football website, the Polish shot-stopper made these remarks while speaking to YouTube channel Foot Truck about a number of his past Arsenal team-mates, including Nasri and Hleb.
“He could have made other decisions and achieved lots more at Arsenal. He’s extremely arrogant – sometimes.
“I have to admit, he left for Manchester United and the following year won a title.
“However, after that, he got benched, moved to Turkey and his big career ended.”
About Nasri, Szczeny said:
“Nasri” always thought he was some kind of gangster. “Everyone has this guy at school, who had strong and big friends and it made him think he was cool.”
