Emirates hero backs another hero to become the best keeping coach in the world.
Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is grateful for all the advice Jens Lehmann has given to him and backed his mentor to become a top-class goalkeeping coach.
The 21-year-old has been taken under the wing by the 41-year-old since Lehmann’s sensational return to the Emirates in March.
The Polish international only joined the Gunners a few weeks after Lehmann left the club to return to Germany in 2007.
Szczesny’s emergence has been one of the big pluses of Arsenal’s season and he is very grateful for how the ex-German international has helped him develop his game.
“It’s very interesting actually – after every game he talks to me in great detail,” Szczesny told the Arsenal Matchday Programme.
“He also takes me to one side at training, or when we’re doing some stretching, and gives me a lot of advice about little aspects of my game.
“It’s not about big things, because I haven’t made many massive mistakes, but he spots little details and uses his experience to help me. That’s really useful and I’m very grateful for it.
“It’s been enjoyable, and I’m looking forward to working with him more because I do learn a lot from him.
“He definitely has the qualities to be a very good coach – he has an ability to give out information in a very clear way, so that you can understand all his advice.”
