Former Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has revealed some very, very interesting anecdotes about his former teammates during an interview with Polish football journalists ?ukasz Wi?niowski and Kuba Polkowski on their YouTube channel ‘Foot Truck’.

The Juve stopper had something to say about everyone from Gervinho (barely makes his top 400 players) to Aleksandr Hleb (likes a bev), to Bacary Sagna (in his opinion once the best right-back in the Premier League) and Olivier Giroud (thinks he is handsome, obviously, because he has eyes).

The most telling, or at least the funniest story from Szczesny came when he was asked about Jack Wilshere:

"My best friend, next to Krychowiak. At my wedding he got so drunk. we were looking for him everywhere for two hours and found him sleeping in bushes. One injury, never fully cured caused next and then next. One of the greatest talent I've met. Because of injuries he now plays in West Ham and not a big European club."

Just a phenomenal little snapshot in every way, from the finding Jack Wilshere asleep in some bushes to the not-so-subtle dig at West Ham at the end.

In fairness, Szczesny was largely positive about all his former Arsenal teammates. You know, other than Samir Nasri, Robin van Persie and Gervinho.

Of Nasri he said: "He always thought he's some kind of gangster. Everyone has this colleague at school, who had strong and big friends and it made him think he's cool. In Poland there is saying - to fart higher than your bottom"

And of Gervinho, simply: "Who thought he would be in the top 40 I played with?! Add one more 0."

He also criticised van Persie for his move to Manchester United, saying: "You have to admit, he left to Man U and next year won a title, but year after that he got benched, moved to Turkey and his big career ended. He could have made other decisions and achive lots more at Arsenal. He's extremely arrogant - sometimes."

The last nugget we'll leave you with concerns the one and only Nicklas Bendtner, who Szczesny sums up better than any amateur psychologist ever could.

"One of the most intelligent guys I played with. You see Nick, well-organized, neat, in-form, seems everything is going great for him, next day you open the newspaper and read 'Drunk Bendtner driving wrong way' and you are like what the fuck!? I don't know, a guy with two personalities. The most confident guy I played with."

Huge credit must go to Reddit user 'hochmvn' for his translation of the interview on the Gunners page. Thank you hochmvn. And thank you, as always, Jack Wilshere.

The only person in the world that could boss a Xavi-Iniesta Barcelona midfield at the age of 19 but also fall asleep in a hedge at his Polish goalkeeper's wedding. We honestly don't deserve him.
