Szczesny talks up Juventus teammate Pinsoglio with Totti swipe

Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has talked up teammate Carlo Pinsoglio - with a dig at Roma legend Francesco Totti.

Pinsoglio is Juve's third-choice goalkeeper and played just 27 minutes of first-team football last season in Juve's final Serie A match, although it was enough to be awarded a new contract.

“Our squad is strong and complete in every department, even among the so-called reserves," Szczesny told Foot Truck.

“Pinsoglio? He's a good lad, he improves the atmosphere in the dressing room. I always fool around with him.

“He only played 22 minutes last season but won as much as Francesco Totti. I always crack this joke."
