Juventus coach Sarri: Buffon knows Szczesny situation

Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri insists Wojciech Szczesny will be his No1 this season.

Juve defeated Inter Milan in Nanjing on Wednesday with Gigi Buffon saving three Inter penalties in the shoot-out.

Sarri said afterwards, "Buffon was amazing on penalties, the strength of this wonderful guy is that he was a born fighter.

"In moments of difficulty, he is always ready.

"He will be held in high regard, but we were immediately clear with him: the starter for us is Szczesny."
