Lichtsteiner: Juve for the CL!

Arsenal right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner has backed former club Juventus to win the Champions League this season.

Lichtsteiner won seven straight Scudetti with Juve between 2011 and 2018 but lost two Champions League Finals in that time, and the Swiss veteran believes the Bianconeri ‘deserve’ to end their 22-year wait for a European trophy.

“I hope Juventus win the Champions League, they deserve it after two losing two Finals,” he told Sky Sports.

“Ronaldo? I don’t regret leaving because that was what I wanted. I wanted a new challenge. Anyone would be happy to join Juventus, but now it’s Arsenal who count.”
