SERIE A

Juventus are having a tough start to the season

Massimiliano Allegri

Juventus are not what they once were. The Old lady has fallen off the cliff in such a surprising way. Max Allegri came at a time when the club was at its lowest. And so far, there has not been any difference in the way the team is playing and the results. They sit so far from the top of Serie A’s table and have had too many embarrassing losses in such a short amount of time. Much has been blamed on the management who let players like Paulo Dybala leave for free this season. Also, The Bianconeri also lost De Ligt to Bayern Munich, though Bremer has exceeded expectations so far.

The historic club has not done much in the Champions League either. They sit at the bottom of the group after defeats against PSG and Benfica in the opening matchdays. Newly promoted side Monza also surprised the Italian giants after beating them 1-0. Though the scoreline was not that big, the performance from Juventus was in every word atrocious and awful. Max Allegri has not found a way to work with the squad. An international break might just prove to be a blessing for them as it really looks like the players need a breather. New signing Paul Pogba was injured in training and will miss most games this year.

The return of Max Allegri has been pretty disappointing, given his historic record with the Bianconeri. After 2 seasons of losing Serie A to Milan sides, the club was looking to make a comeback. But, It looks like the team needs new faces and really needs to get rid of some old players who just do not fit the system anymore. The likes of Bonucci and Cuadrado are not putting their best performances for the team which really affects the morale of the young ones. Vlahovic is nowhere to be seen in the attack and the midfield feels sluggish and slow. Arthur Melo is not at the club anymore and with that, they might have lost any hope to control that midfield.

De Gea And Juventus linked

David De Gea is one of the finest keepers in world football. The Spaniard was without a doubt the best player for Manchester United last season with his world-class saves. It is no surprise that many top clubs in world football come in with an offer from him and Juventus now seems to be one of them. As Per the report, Juve are already looking for a replacement for Wojciech Szczęsny. The Polish sees his contract end next season.

But it is fair to say that he has been very consistent with his performance and has bailed out Juve many times. Juventus will only look to go for De Gea if Szczęsny’s performances show any sort of dip and inconsistency. But that rarely happens and if someone should take the blame, it is the defense that is not able to keep out the attacks. The club has to make some brave decisions if they are to make it at the top again. This might just include getting someone better than their old man in the black suit.
