Wojciech Szczesny may have only been on the bench when Juventus beat Tottenham in the Champions League in 2018, but he enjoyed every moment of it.

Speaking on the Arsenal Nation podcast, our former goalkeeper says he was feeling the heat from the home fans until the Italians claimed a late victory at Wembley Stadium.

"I really enjoyed that, let me tell you," Szczesny told our In Lockdown podcast. "We beat them at Wembley and I was getting stick. 

"I was on the bench because that first year [for me at Juventus], Gigi played all the Champions League games. It seemed like the whole stadium was just everybody against the second-choice keeper of Juventus. 

"I was like, 'Guys, just watch the game, you're about to get knocked out so just enjoy it'. And they did, so I really enjoyed that. 

"I was quite scared because they were very good that night! We just managed to knock them out. In the future, don't worry - I'll make sure nothing goes past me if we have to play against them. 

"Hold on, hold on, Harry Kane did score against me from the halfway line in a friendly this year, so... I was being friendly to him basically!"
