Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny said he failed to develop during his time at Arsenal due to the gulf in coaching between the Premier League and Serie A.
Szczesny left Arsenal on a permanent basis in the off-season, joining Italian champions Juve, having spent two years on loan at Roma.
“I think in general, the coaches in Italy are much more tactical, that’s just how the league works,” Szczesny said.
“Whether it was [Luciano] Spalletti at Roma or Max Allegri here, the preparation for the game is different to what I was used to in England. You work on the shape of the team for a particular match all week. At Arsenal you’d just prepare physically for it, but here you watch film analysing a specific opponent before the game and afterwards we’ll watch again to see what worked and what didn’t,” he added.
