Arsenal custodian Wojciech Szczesny has revealed that he would love to play the FA Cup final against Hull City, but will leave it to manager Arsene Wenger to make the final decision.

The Gunners were able to secure a hard-earned victory against holders Wigan Athletic after their second choice goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski managed to make two brilliant saves during the penalty shootout to hand his team a semi-final victory.

His impressive performance on the day means that Wenger will have to decide on whether to continue with Fabianski or resort to his number one.

The Poland international however, is more concerned with seeing his team get their hands on their first trophy in nine years.


"As an Arsenal fan, I just want to get the trophy", the 23-year-old told the FA's official site.

"It is not so much, for me, playing in the competition.

"Lukasz has been doing really well and he was the penalty shoot-out hero at Wembley. I was very happy for him. For us it is massive to get a trophy and I hope we can please everyone at the club.

Speaking about his wish to be part of the manager's first team Szczesny said: "I would love to play, obviously, but it is the manager's decision."
