Former Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has opened out about the chest qproblems he felt last season.
The quarterfinal meeting between Juventus and Sporting CP in the UEFA Europa League last year was marred by chest problems for the Poland international.
The Juventus goalie experienced chest pain and heart palpitations during the first half of the game.
Poland’s No. 1 was changed at halftime.
The goalkeeper believed he was going to pass away, according to Canal+ Polonia.
“Probably back or spine problems,” he added.
“It was scary. I really thought I was going to die,” Szczesny said.
“After passing a ball to the defender, I felt like my heart was about to explode.
“During a corner kick, I told Arek (Arkadiusz Milik), I was hurt, but the Sporting players were already taking a corner kick.”
“The chest pain was horrible. To this day, we don’t know the reason.
“Probably back or spine problems,” he added
