Arsenal and Polish goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has come out saying that his performance at the Allianz Arena was not an attempt to prove anything insisting that he is just trying to do his job and help the team.
The 28-year-old goalkeeper started the second leg of the gunners UEFA Champions League last-16 tie against Bayern Munich on Tuesday replacing suspended first team keeper, Wojciech Szczesny.
Fabianski, who put up a wonderful show on tuesday night against champions Bayern is expected to leave the Emirates Stadium, having joined the club from Legia Warsaw in 2007.
The Polish man made his stand on the match clear after saving a late penalty from Thomas Muller as the game finished 1-1 in the Allianz Arena.
The goalkeeper had this to say: “I don’t think I have to prove anything”.
“Like I have said many times, I am just enjoying the games and trying to help the team in every situation they expect me to help.
“With the penalties, it is either you get it or not, and I was lucky so I am pleased with that.”
He also said: “Hopefully it will give us the same as it gave us last season where we went on a really good run,”
“We are still competing for the title, we are still competing for the FA Cup so hopefully it will give us a massive boost for the rest of the season”.
“I think [the confidence from this performance] is crucial for every player. All the players were disappointed we couldn’t get the result we wanted but on the other hand they didn’t beat us”.
“Maybe the first half was more for them but the second half I think they had chances, we had chances and it was more open. I think you could see they were nervous until the last few minutes of the game so you can see that we showed our pride. We are looking forward to the final games of the season.”
With such brilliant performance shown by the Polish goalkeeper, it will not come as a surprise if Wenger offers the 28-year-old with a new contract to keep him at the Emirates in case of emergencies and also as on-loan goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano has fallen down the pecking order in the Arsenal team.
