"I Didn't Want to Save. I Covered My Head" Whenever He Got the Ball

Wojciech Szczesny during his Foot Truck episode with two Polish journalists said that he never wanted to save whenever Lukas Podolski got the ball.

You would agree that when picking ex-Arsenal players with shots like a bomb, Podolski is one of them.

Our former goalkeeper who now plays for Juventus was as scared as any other opposing shot-stopper when the German is in possession of the ball and is in a position where he could shoot.

Sczesny said: "I remember, and I'm not lying to you now. In training, when Poldi got the ball inside the box, 10-11 metres, I didn't want to save... 

"I covered my head. I swear, I just protected the head. He was a really funny guy and just a normal person."

Hahaha! Who won't protect his head when Poldi attempts a shot? Even if you don't, you'll be shivering deep inside while praying for the ball to just go in rather than hit you.

Aside giving his take on the characters of Robin van Persie, Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky, the 28=year-old glovesman also talked about some others.

on Samir Nasri
He always thought he was some kind of gangster. Everyone has this person at school, who had strong and big friends and it made him think he was cool. In Poland there's a saying - to fart higher than your bottom.

on Nicklas Bendtner
One of the most intelligent guys I played with. You see Nick: well-organised, neat, in-form, it seems everything is going great for him. The next day you open a newspaper and read 'Drunk Bendtner driving the wrong way' and you're like, 'WTF'. I dont know, he's a guy with two personalities. The most confident guy I played with.

on Gervinho
Who thought he might be in my top 40 I played with?! Add one more zero.

on Santi Cazorla
We were on a training camp in Cologne when Santi joined us. During the first training session we played small-sided games. After training everyone gave Arsene a big applause for signing Cazorla.

"Slow, small, one of the best I played with. Unbelievable mind and technique. I can't tell what was his best asset, but you played with him and were like: 'Oh my God, he's so good.' Loveable, friendly, always smiling. Although I'm not wanting to insult, he had a tendency to gain weight.
