'I don't like it' – Wojciech Szczesny slams 'arrogant' Juventus amid season struggles despite 2-0 win over Cagliari

WOJCIECH SZCZESNY has fired a warning shot at cocky Juventus team-mates as the Serie A giants battle for a top-four spot.

The Poland international kept a clean sheet as Juve ran out 2-0 winners over relegation-threatened Cagliari.

But the 31-year-old was unimpressed by a lack of effort after his side went 1-0 up in Turin.

He told broadcaster DAZN: “We worked hard, but I think there's a lot we need to improve still, both in defence and upfront.

“Sometimes at 1-0 we relax and sit a bit too deep, but that's not good in the long run, we play arrogantly in those situations and I don't like it.

“It happened many times, including in Venezia when we conceded.

“We sit too deep in the second half, we can't keep lowering the level of intensity for 10-15 minutes every time.

“It went alright today, but we dropped two points against Venezia, so we can't keep doing that.'

Juve are clinging on to hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
