Wojciech Szczesny admitted he still loves Arsenal after Juventus knocked Tottenham Hotspur out of the Champions League this week.
Szczesny clearly had a lot of fun watching his new side knocking out his old rivals, and didn’t hide that fact after the game.
“I enjoyed it a lot,” he said in Friday’s edition of The Guardian.
“There were a couple [of Tottenham] fans – very vocal – next to my bench, who went missing after the 80th minute. So yeah, I enjoyed it. Plus winning at Wembley is always special.”
You could tell the 27-year-old enjoyed getting a bit of revenge on the Spurs fans, when he made a ‘chin up’ sign at them as he walked down the tunnel.

When asked about Arsenal, the goalkeeper said he still loves his former club.
He wouldn’t be drawn into talking about what’s going wrong at the moment though. At the time Arsene Wenger’s side were on a four-match losing streak, but Szczesny insisted it wasn’t his place to judge.
“I’m focused on my job at Juventus,” he said. “I still love Arsenal, I love the people and I wish them the best, but to judge the situation is not appropriate.”
Despite saying all that, the former Gunner still decided to add a cheeky “NorthLondonIsRed” hashtag on his Instagram post after the match.
It’s nice to have former players who still so clearly care about the club. The only disappointing thing is that Szczesny left in the first place.
He has his flaws, but he’s performing a lot better in Italy than any of Arsenal’s current goalkeepers are over here.
It’s a shame the club didn’t decide to bring him back to show this same passion and talent in an Arsenal shirt.
