Seven years have now passed since the Gunners last tasted silverware – a penalty shootout victory over Manchester United in the 2005 FA Cup final at the Millennium Stadium.
And Szczesny, who has been one of the north Londoners’ outstanding performers this season, is determined to stay and bring back the glory days to the club.
“I can’t imagine myself in the next few years’ time playing anywhere other than here,” he said.
“In fact, I won’t move until we win something.
“Recently, one of the journalists asked me whether I have bigger ambitions than playing for the third place in the Premier League with Arsenal. God, sure I have! I look at the table and realise that is our maximum this year.
“It is seven years since Arsenal won something and it won’t change this season. But the next one? Who knows?
“I stand in front of a mirror and say to myself: ‘Damn, I’m interested in winning trophies only with Arsenal.’
“I want to be part of the team that show fans the bad times are over. I won’t leave until we achieve this.”
