Cape Town - Wojciech Szczesny was lied to by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, according to former Polish goalkeeper Jan Tomaszewski.

The Independent report that Wojciech Szczesny's future at Emirates is in doubt after allegations the player was lied to by the club's manager.

"In January I spoke to [Poland manager] Adam Nawalka and he said that Arsene Wenger had told him that if Szczesny worked hard in training he would play again soon," Tomaszewski told Polish newspaper Przeglad.

"It turned out that he didn't tell the truth. I'm sure that when Szczesny said that he was going to stay at Arsenal, he didn't know that Cech was going to come because Wenger didn't tell him about his plans. "

Tomaszewski also thinks Szczesny must be devastated after the confirmation of Petr Cech's arrival from Chelsea and has advised him to leave Arsenal because if he stayed "it will be a waste of time for him". 

The former Poland international also fears that Poland's national team may suffer if their number one goalkeeper is not playing regular first team football.

The 25-year-old goalkeeper joined Arsenal in 2006 as part of the youth team before joining Brentford on loan.

Szczesny lost his place in the Arsenal's league lineup to David Ospina after several poor performances but was retained for Arsenal's defence of their FA Cup title.
