Former Juventus Turin player Alessandro Mati spoke to Gazzetta Dello Sport about the Bianconeri’s current squad. He revealed that current coach Massimiliano Allegri brings added value to the team. However, he expects a little more from his former team’s forwards.
“Yes, Max is the added value. He has compacted the team and made it solid: the game isn’t beautiful yet, but he values individuals for their characteristics and in defense he succeeds very well. Gradually, he will also improve the strikers. I was expecting more goals from Vlahovic and Chiesa, who have great quality, but both have the mitigating circumstance of physical pain. In the Juve of our first Scudetto, in 2011-12 with Conte, we all scored a bit like this year, so much so that the top scorer was me with 10 goals,” explains Matri.
