Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny feels it will take “a couple of years” before Arsenal return to the Champions League.
Szczesny came through the club’s academy and made 181 appearances for the club, before a two-year loan spell at Roma in 2015 was followed by a free transfer move to Juventus in 2017. The Pole still keeps a close eye on his former club, though, and believes manager Mikel Arteta will steer them back to Europe’s top tier competition in the next “couple of years”

“As a fan, it was really disappointing. They gave it a good go and nobody would have said before the season started that they had a chance,” Szczesny said.
“They were still in it with two games of the season left. It’s disappointing but they have actually done a good job this year. I can see Mikel’s idea of football, he has a young team so they will be all right.
“Another couple of years and they will be back in the Champions League.”
