He had taken up the inauspicious third keepers spot at a premier league club - no doubt decent wages but little chance of game time. Fabianski's injury and Roberto's disastrous deputisation gave him his chance.They will actually have played together under Les Parry. I bet they never thought they would be reunited in the Premier League.
