Before heading to training, is there anything else that you generally do?
I have a quick shower and that’s about it.

How long does it take you to drive to the training ground?
20 minutes or so.

And what car do you drive there?
An Audi four wheel drive.

Do you listen to music or the radio on the way in?
In the morning I always listen to the radio – Kiss 100.

Do you always travel on your own?

Are you usually one of the first in training – or one of the last?
Generally the first!

What do you keep in your locker?
Not that much – my gloves, my iPod and a Polish flag!

On the training pitches do you have any special warm-up routines?
Not really, but before going out there I warm up my shoulders and ankles as a result of recent injuries.

What aspect of training do you enjoy the most?
Shot-stopping – but that’s the same for any goalkeeper.

Which team-mate do you think is the best trainer?
Apart from me?! Probably Per or Tomas Rosicky.

Who do you tend to sit with at lunch?
Again, Per and Tomas usually.

Do you always head home straight after training?
No – I stay and do a lot of work to keep myself in shape. I’ve changed my approach a lot and now put a lot of extra hours in trying to manage my body better.

What do you tend to do when you get home?
I’ll rest up and spend some time with my girlfriend – perhaps watching TV or a movie.

Tell us three things that you might do in the evening?
It’s pretty much what I just said – I like to watch a film if I can.

What’s the last thing you do before going to bed?
Brush my teeth.

What time do you go to bed?
About 10pm – I’m shattered by then!
