Former Arsenal keeper, Wojciech Szczesny, has named five clubs that could possibly challenge Juventus for the Champions League trophy this season.
Szczesny stated that the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Liverpool have the quality to battle out for the cup against Juve.
The Juventus keeper stated this ahead of his side’s Champions League match with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
“We want to win the trophy and our rivals are the same as always in Europe right now, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern, Manchester City and Liverpool,” Metro UK quoted Szczesny as saying.
“Within that group there should be the names of the finalists. We believe we are good enough to do it.
“The Juve of this season aspires to win everything and not just because we’ve signed Cristiano Ronaldo. As a group, we have improved and are more consistent.”
He further stated “We feel that, if we win in Manchester, we are virtually in the next round and that has to be our main objective.
“And, for me, Old Trafford is a stadium where you like to play and win. At Arsenal, I played many matches against them and they were very special.
“Our challenge is to demonstrate in this Champions League that we can go a long way – and beating United would show we are on the right track.“
