Boniek praises Skorupski

Former Juventus and Roma player Zibi Boniek took the time to praise youngster Lukasz Skorupski after the Polish goalkeeper impressed in his full Serie A debut against Juventus:

“I like and know him (Skorupski) and I also really like the coach. De Sanctis is very strong and has had an amazing season, but he (Skorupski) is promising because he is good and he knows how to parry well in difficult situations. He’s done very well and. to tell you the truth, I did not expect that he could have a match like that. Not because he isn’t good, it’s just that having played only one match this season in the Italian Cup, I thought I he’d be nervous and pay for his inactivity.”
