The Arsenal loanee goalkeeper pulled off a spectacular save to deny the Italian champions in injury time.
Roma are indebted to their loan goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny after the Arsenal stopper pulled off a spectacular last-minute save to deny Juventus and ensure his temporary employers won 2-1 last night.
The Poland international fell down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium over the summer, with the acquisition of Petr Cech relegating the 25-year-old to Arsene Wenger’s third choice.
The chance to move to Roma is an excellent option for Szczesny, who will fight for the Serie A title and play in the Champions League with the Italian capital city side this season.
As can be seen above, the Pole made a stunning last-gasp save to help his side beat Juventus 2-1 yesterday and exact a second straight defeat on the current Italian champions.
The capital city side have high hopes for this term after a number of progressive signings in the off-season.
For Wenger and the Arsenal fans, the hope will be that Szczesny will rebuild confidence in Italy with the chance to play week-in, week-out and return to the North London club as a better player.
However, with Cech still having a number of years at the top level still left in him, it remains to be seen just when the Pole would be reinstated to the Gunners’ team.
