The commanding Polish goalkeeper has been with the Gunners since he was a teenager, with Arsenal's coaches having helped to mould him into the player he is today.

Szczesny appreciates that he owes the club a lot, with it unlikely that he would be playing Premier League football were it not for Arsene Wenger and his scouting network.

In fact, the 22-year-old says he has bought into the Arsenal way of life so much that he cannot see a day where he would consider turning out for another club.

"Ever since I signed for this club, I've become an Arsenal fan," Szczesny told Arsenal Player.

"It feels like it's more than just me playing and doing my best on a Saturday afternoon. I feel like I have a much bigger part to play at this club. It means that little bit more to me.

"I don't think about playing for any other club. I see my future at Arsenal Football Club.

"I committed to coming here at the age of 16, not to then leave at the age of 24. That's not how it works for me.

"I think coming over to England at the age of 16 was the most important decision of my life and probably the best one, to date."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
