JUVENTUS, GAZZETTA – Allegri’s team really risks the great collapse with a start that has put everything into question, even Allegri.
Juventus, Gazzetta: “Bonucci on the bench with Allegri taking risks”
“With two words Marco Landucci, Massimiliano Allegri’s deputy, liquidated Leonardo Bonucci’s bench in Monza. Singular, if you think about the delicate moment of Juve. What other coach, with a break for the national teams at the gates, would have renounced the captain after being in the crosshairs of critics and fans for poor results? And again: as a coach, with the team reduced to the bone due to injuries and suspensions (10 unavailable), a circumstance that the same coach has not failed to remark several times, he would have launched a young player from 1 ‘to the second match in A (Gatti) in place of one of the group leaders? Max Allegri is probably the only one who knows the answers to these simple questions. Because even Bonucci himself, the decision was motivated with mere technical reasons, on the eve. «Even Danilo was out with Salernitana – commented Landucci after the knockout of the U-Power Stadium, as if to say that everyone can rest -. This time we were thinking of exploiting Gatti’s physicality ». A choice that, in retrospect, turned out to be wrong. Bonucci was fine, he was ready and did not expect to watch his teammates. And then the captain, unlike the other “senator” Danilo, had already missed some matches (Sampdoria, Roma and Spezia) due to injury. Why let him rest before the national teams “?
