Szczesny: ‘Pirlo wants new things’

Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny insists the Old Lady's mentality won’t change without the injured Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci and praised Andrea Pirlo.

“We expect a tough game,” the former Arsenal goalkeeper said at a press conference ahead of the Ferencvaros clash in Champions League.

“They are tough opponents, we show good things against Cagliari.”

The Old Lady beat the Sardinians 2-0 at home on Saturday and had won 4-1 away against the Hungarians in the first-leg game on November 4. Szczesny believes Juve won’t miss the injured Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci.

“We always give the best on the pitch, it’s difficult not to find motivations in Champions League. It’s always tough when two big players like them are not available, but our mentality won’t change, we have lot of leaders and personality, nothing will change.”

The 30-year-old is enjoying the new course under Andrea Pirlo.

“I like the way we press high, we were very aggressive against Cagliari and we created many goal chances, we did well in the first half, we should do it for 90 minutes to become a big team.

“[Andrea] Pirlo wants something new, I have a good relationship with him. We press high, we are available for him and we want to improve to become a great team.”
