Gunners Video Ranking: 4 / 5
Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has come out with a public apology after jokingly calling his teammate Aaron Ramsey as a rapist. Aaron Ramsey posted a picture of himself taken in golf clothing, to which Wojciech Szczesny responded by saying that it made him look like a rapist.
Even though it was meant to be a funny comment, it has drawn a lot of attention on Wojciech Szczesny. This comment comes at a time when there have been a number of racist remarks in the Premier League. Luis Suarez has already been found guilty of racism, while John Terry has been accused of racism.
Even though this is technically not going to be considered racist, it is something that is capable of distributing the Arsenal season as a whole. After suffering a poor start to the season, Arsene Wenger will now be relieved that Arsenal are capable of finishing in the top four, which will guarantee Champions League qualification. Finishing outside the top four will in that Arsenal will have to settle for just the Europa League place. Hence, the Frenchman will be looking to avoid any controversies at this stage of the campaign. Fortunately, Wojciech Szczesny has come out with the apology stating that it was a comment that should never have been made.
“I’m sorry if anyone was offended by my previous tweets. There are some thing we should not joke about and I have crossed the line. Sorry!’” said a new tweet from the Arsenal goalkeeper, who has had tremendous response after performing so brilliantly. His performances recently have almost eliminated any talk of Arsenal looking to sign a new goalkeeper. Wojciech Szczesny finally seems to be the goalkeeper Arsene Wenger has been searching in order to replace David Seaman. This is not the latest incident involving an Arsenal player on Twitter.
