Lukasz Fabianski has made more saves than any other keeper in Europe, so why did he struggle so much when he was at Arsenal?
The 33-year-old spent seven years at Arsenal and it’s safe to say he wasn’t universally loved by the Arsenal fanbase.
Speaking to the Guardian at the weekend, Fabianski is clear about what happened at Arsenal, and why he has improved so much since he felt he had to leave in 2014.
“When I played for Arsenal, like once per month, you always had this feeling you had to perform,”Fabianski told Stuart James.
“Then you end up either having a good game or a really bad one [because of the pressure]. And that was the biggest difference.
“Now there is pressure but in a different way, because you focus on the things that, for example, the people are demanding from you, rather than just trying to show yourself, so you kind of flow with the game rather than force the game.”
