Szczesny: I just want the trophy - Nevermind if I don't play

Wojciech Szczesny has admitted he would rather Arsenal picked up the FA Cup than play in the final himself.

Arsenal's first choice goalkeeper has yet to play in any of the matches in the FA Cup this season

Instead compatriot Lukasz Fabianski has been picked by Arsene Wenger to start in all five games which have seen him produce man of the match displays in four of the ties.

And with May's Wembley final on the horizon, Szczesny has admitted he'd rather the club picked up their first trophy in nine years than play in the show piece event himself.

The 23-year-old said:
"As an Arsenal fan, I just want to get the trophy. 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."
He added:
"It is up to the manager. Lukasz has done really well and he deserves a lot of credit.  
"I would love to play, obviously, but it is the manager's decision."
The Gunners face Hull City on May 17 at Wembley in the final.
