At the press conference, Szczesny said he joined the club due to its winning mentality and said the competition with Gianluigi Buffon will help him grow. The Polish goalkeeper, who was on loan at Roma during the last two seasons, has signed for Juventus until 2021 and for a fee of €12.2 million.

“What convinced me to come here was the idea of winning. Since I arrived in Italy, Juventus have won everything apart from the Champions League. Anyone who comes here, wins. And I want to too.”

Szczesny has been signed as a potential heir to Buffon and knows it will be difficult to displace him. “I respect him and will try to learn as much as possible from him,” the Pole said. Nevertheless he thinks he can play an important role for Juventus.
