Krystian Bielik Determined to Earn a Spot in Walsall's Starting XI

Krystian Bielik has spoken to club journalists and discussed his desire to prove himself as he looks to earn a spot in Dean Keates' starting line-up.
On-loan Arsenal defender Krystian Bielik, who has finally linked up with the Saddlers squad almost two months after joining the club on Transfer Deadline Day, has spoken to club journalists and discussed his desire to prove himself as he looks to earn a spot in Dean Keates' starting line-up.

Krystian, who had shoulder surgery over the summer, had hoped to join the Saddlers shortly after Deadline Day but suffered an injury setback which forced him to remain in London as he worked towards full fitness.

20-year-old Bielik, who was speaking via Saddlers TV, said; "I’m very excited and I’m getting better. The last few months were not good for me. In the winter transfer window I did my hamstring then my knee - but step-by-step I’m getting better. I’m on my third training session with the lads now and I’m looking forward to playing for Walsall, to get my confidence back and to help the team.

"I just want to play my football and help the team. My physiotherapist wanted to finish his job - which was to send me to Walsall fit. He did a great job, I feel better now and I’m focused on training and on the games. I want to deserve a place in the squad and play at my best.

"My body wasn’t ready in the season so far, and now I feel much better. I want to just do my best and forget about the stuff that’s already gone. It’s behind me. In every training session I try to do my best to impress the coach. Some people can say “oh, he came from Arsenal so he has to play” but no, I know I have to deserve it from training.

"If the manager puts me in the squad I’ll try to stay there for as long as I can and play the most games the best that I can - and that’s my target for this season. Arsenal told me ‘Krys, do your best and finish this season the best that you can.

"I’ve played just four games, which is not very good for me. We have eight more games now and I will do everything that I can to play all eight games for 90 minutes, and help Walsall. I just want to do my best and show my quality, and hopefully in the game you can see this."
