Have learnt more in Roma than in England: Goalkeeper Szczesny

Rome, May 21 (IANS) Goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny on Saturday said he has “learned more in four months” in Roma “than 10 years in England” where he plied his trade with English football giants Arsenal.

The 26-year-old is presently on loan from Arsenal and has put in impressive performances for the Italian club this season.

“I know where I will be playing next season, but I won’t tell. If I stay at Roma, it’ll be the opportunity to grow and improve even more. If I return to Arsenal, I’ll make use of my experience,” Szczesny was quoted as saying by football-italia.net.

“I learned more in four months under (Roma coach) Luciano Spalletti than in 10 years in England. He puts a lot of importance on playing the ball to feet. One day we trained for over 45 minutes just on goal kicks.

“I really get on with goalkeeping coach Nanni too, as he is a great professional and I never get bored.”

The Poland international also had words of praise for Roma captain Francesco Totti.

“If there is a God of football, then Totti comes pretty close.”
