Szczesny: Determined to win a trophy

With the Gunners destined to end the 2011/12 campaign empty-handed, seven years have now passed since they lasted lifted a trophy.

Those inside the Emirates Stadium camp are doing their utmost to end the barren spell, though, and it is hoped that a brighter future awaits them.

Szczesny is determined to bring success back to the north London outfit, with the 21-year-old desperate to return Arsenal to the top of English football.

He admits that competing for a top-four finish year after year will not satisfy his desire to be the very best, but he has made it clear that he will not walk away from the Gunners until he has won something.

"I can't imagine myself in the next few years' time playing anywhere other than here. In fact, I won't move until we win something," Szczesny said ahead of Arsenal's home date with Wigan on Monday.

"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."
