Juve stopper Szczesny tips former Arsenal team-mate Ramsey to thrive in Italy

JUVENTUS goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has predicted former Arsenal team-mate Aaron Ramsey will be a huge success in Italy.

The Welsh midfielder, 28, has agreed to join the Serie A giants this summer on a four-year deal worth £400,000-a-week.

Szczesny, 28, played alongside Ramsey in North London before he left to join Juventus in 2017.

And he has predicted that the midfielder will be a great addition to Massimiliano Allegri's squad next season.

When asked about Ramsey on YouTube channel Foot Truck, Szczesny said: "He never considered football as a tactical game.

"He is the guy who runs for the whole 90 minutes.

"He runs more than any player I've played with, 13 kilometres per game with no problem.

"In my opinion, he'll be a great addition to Juventus."

Juventus will high expectations of Ramsey as he will arrive to Turin as the eighth best paid player in the world.

Ramsey will leave the Gunners after 11 years when his contract expires because Unai Emery's side did not offer him a new deal.

Szczesny also took the chance to reflect on some of his other team-mates from his eight-year stint with Arsenal.

Speaking about Thierry Henry, he said: "The best player in Arsenal's history. The best player in Premier League history.

"He was very demanding, especially on the youngsters. The guys always said they were afraid of him in training."
