Wojciech Szczesny has explained why he felt he had to leave Arsenal to join Juventus in the summer.

Szczesny completed his permanent switch to the Serie A champions in July, having spent the previous season on loan in Turin.

The Pole had not featured for Arsenal since the 2015 FA Cup final, and says the decision to join Juventus, where he is understudy to Gianluigi Buffon, was easy.

“I came here because I need to win everything,” Szczesny told Mediaset Premium.

“I chose Juventus for their winning mindset. Every day in training I feel stronger and more ready to play for this club.

“It seemed a normal choice to me, when Juve call you, you have to go. When you play for Juventus the goal is always to win everything, and it’s no different this year.

“Scudetto rivals? There are a lot of strong teams, Napoli seem the most dangerous because of the quality of their play.

“But there’s also Roma, and [Luciano] Spalletti’s Inter have started very well this season. We have to be ready to win every game, but with our mentality we will be.”
