Allegri confirms midfielder will start tomorrow’s match

August 21, 2022 - 5:30 pm

Max Allegri has confirmed that Adrien Rabiot will be in the Juventus team for their match against Sampdoria tomorrow.

The Frenchman missed their first league game of the season because he was suspended.

Manchester United had an offer for his signature accepted by Juve at the same time.

The midfielder held talks with the English club and we expected him to leave, but the talks didn’t make progress and he has remained at the Allianz Stadium.

He is unlikely to move now, and Juve has to reintegrate him into their squad.

Allegri has no problems with that and the manager has confirmed he will start the game against La Samp.

He said, as quoted by Football Italia:

“Rabiot plays tomorrow.

“Of course, players who could leave have chances in the market, but Rabiot had an excellent season last term. He was suspended last week, so he didn’t play. We have two new signings tomorrow, Rabiot and Kean, who were suspended against Sassuolo.”

Juve FC Says

Although Juve fans struggle to see the good contributions of Rabiot, Allegri is clearly a fan of the Frenchman.

The gaffer knows the value he brings to his team and will keep playing him as long as he remains at the club.

    I have always supported & respected Max Allegri for all that he has achieved as manager of the Bianconeri, but I cannot support him on his stance over Rabiot. He wanted to leave, so we granted his wish & agreed to sell him to Manchester United, only for the deal to collapse because his agent/mother believes that her son has the talent of Zinedine Zidane & demanded insane wages & signing-on fee. Even Manchester United, who are desperately throwing money all around Europe told them where to go. Now he shamelessly comes back to Turin & is rewarded with a guaranteed start back in the first XI. He should never play for Juventus again, even if every other midfielder is injured. I would play the guys in the Under-19s rather than Rabiot. He offers nothing to the team & his attitude is disrespectful in the extreme. Managers often have blind spot players & Rabiot is certainly Allegri’s. I always support our players on the field, but I will never support Rabiot again. He should be put back on the market immediately & told to find another club. I just don’t understand what Allegri sees in him & I never will understand.
