Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has been told to consider leaving the club by former Liverpool ace Jerzy Dudek, reports the Daily Mirror.
The Pole has been on the substitutes’ bench in the Premier League since making errors for both goals in a 2-0 loss to Southampton on New Year’s Day.
With replacement David Ospina doing well in his absence it doesn’t look likely that the 24-year-old will be making a return to the side anytime soon.
Dudek became a hero in the red half of Merseyside for his penalty saves in the 2005 Champions League final, and made over 60 appearances for Poland.
He believes the lack of first team action could harm Szczesny’s national team chances, with Lukasz Fabianski performing well for Swansea City and Artur Boruc playing regularly for Bournemouth, the keeper could have serious trouble getting in to the side.
The 42-year-old said: “It’s a serious matter. If I were in his place, I would wonder whether there are still opportunities to arise at Arsenal and wouldn’t wait as long as Fabianski, because you can see that Arsene Wenger is firmly set on David Ospina. Fortunately, [Poland] have two other goalkeepers who are able to provide an adequate level in our goal.”
