Pundit gives Bizarre and Worrying comment on Arsenal ‘lunatic’

Despite the modern world of football, especially when dealing with a big club like Arsenal, being a lot more intrusive into the personal lives of the players, we still do not really know too much about what our stars are like away from the training and playing of games and the interviews they give to the media.

So football pundits normally restrict themselves to talking about a players ability or character that has an impact on the game. Not the Italian pundit Stefano Tacconi, though, as the 58-year old former Juventus keeper has come out with a pretty strange comment on the Arsenal and Poland international keeper Wojciech Szczesny who is currently plying his trade in Serie A while he spends a season on loan at Roma.

Metro has reported Tacconi saying, “He’s a good goalkeeper, there’s no doubt about that.

“But he’s an uncontrollable lunatic – he’s completely mad. And for this reason he’s a risk.

“What rating would I give him? 7.5.”

I am really not sure what to make of this. On the one hand it is good to hear that the on loan Gunner is performing well for his new club and the fact that Roma are just a single point off the leaders of the Italian league and are going along nicely in their Champions League campaign is great news for Szczesny and Arsenal.

But if Szczesny really is a dangerous madman, do we really want him back in the Arsenal dressing room next season?

    Szczesny needs to give up the smoking its probably affecting his head!

    Hahaha ???
    Well… We know that he is crazy enough to get caught smoking in the showers after a game.

    Maybe he was spotted at a petrol station with a cigarette in his gob, whilst filling up? ?

    No Seriously…. I think that the Italian pundits meaning of dangerous meant that Szczesny is a liability!
    But we already knew that to be the case.

    I would not trust the OPINION (and that is what it is) of one person with an accusation so damning as “uncontrollable lunatic.” Have we ever heard that from Arsenal players???

  4. I’ve heard it said many years ago that you had to be half mad to be a goalkeeper, if that’s the case. Szczeny is perfect as a stopper.

      Football pundits and other icons make comments each day and it does not bother me. I m happy for our players performing well on loan. One of the best qualities that a footballer can have is consistency in the quality of his game. This is the only thing that szcessny lacks. Hope he gets it wid Roma.

    rating a lunatic 7.5 is equally insane…

  6. Its okay by me. I sincerely appreciate the comment ” uncontrollable lunatic”. But then, we need him “szcesny” back after the loan spell.
