Former Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny says joining Juventus was the “right choice” for him, and says he saw no improvement in his game tactically as Arsenal first choice goalie.
The 27-year-old safe hand spent 10 years with Arsenal before leaving to join the Italian Serie A giants this summer transfer window, having spent the previous two League seasons on loan with AS Roma.
Juve signed the Poland international goalkeeper on a four-year contract worth £3.5m per year and, three months on, the goalkeeper revealed he has since improved in his technical goalkeeping ability since making the move from the English Premier League to Italian Serie A.
Wojciech Szczesny joined the Gunners academy from Legia Warsaw back in 2006 and went on to make 181 first team match appearances, before he fell down the pecking order after the signing of Czech star Petr Cech and David Ospina.
The Polish is understudy to club legend Gianluigi Buffon, the most featured international in Italy’s history, and claim he is enjoying learning off the FIFA World Cup-winning 39-year-old safe hand.
But, with club and country legend set to retire at the end of the current season, the Pole knows he has a massive boots to fill if he is to seal the No 1 spot.
