Juventus stopper Wojciech Szczęsny has laughed at the fact he used to keep the world’s best goalie Alisson out of AS Roma’s team – while currently starting ahead of the greatest of all time – Gianluigi Buffon – for the Old Lady!
The 29-year-old is a far more renowned and respected keeper now than during his Arsenal days, and in truth, he’d walk into Unai Emery’s side if he was still at the Emirates.
Szczęsny always came across as a good person during his time in England, and it’s nice to see him making such humble comments.
It seems the Pole knew his Roma understudy was probably his superior all along!
“I had the best goalkeeper in the world, Alisson Becker, as my understudy at Roma and now I have the best goalkeeper of all time [Gianluigi Buffon] backing me up at Juventus,” he told Sky, cited in the Echo.
After winning the Champions League with Liverpool and the Copa America with Brazil, Alisson’s not managed to begin this campaign as he left the last…
An injury to his calf picked up on Premier League opening night v Norwich has seen Adrian play the season for us so far – with our brilliant no.1 not expected back imminently.
Hopefully we can continue winning with the Spaniard, who is prone to an error, between our sticks.
