Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny stopped tweeting last month, citing a need to "grow up." But now he might want to stop granting interviews to magazines.

Milan dismantled Arsenal 4-0 in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie, making the second leg at Emirates Stadium an exercise in futility. After the game, Arsene Wenger admitted (via Reuters) that "we were beaten everywhere" and that "realistically we are out of this competition."

And so Szczesny's attempt to prod Arsenal's North London rivals in the latest issue of FourFourTwo magazine now seems all the more hilarious. "The draw is exciting," Szczesny is quoted as saying. "Tottenham beat Milan last year, so we're clearly capable of doing that!"
