Wojciech Szczesny didn’t hold back in his analysis of the first hour of Juventus’ performance this evening.
“For the first 60 minutes we were unwatchable and we deserved to be losing,” the goalkeeper claimed. “Our character was in question but then we showed our mettle, managing to win without playing well.”
It is this capacity to self-criticise following a victory of this nature that helps the Bianconeri to be so relentless in the pursuit of their aims. It’s the sign of a winning mentality that ensures you emerge victorious from a game like tonight’s at the Olimpico.
“We only conceded one goal because we realised that we had to change our attitude.
“As for [Massimiliano] Allegri’s compliments, when you play with superstars like these it’s normal to expect that you’ll improve and acquire more experience. I follow the example of our leaders and maybe one day I’ll be one too.”
