Allegri’s stance on Rugani and Gatti and their future at Juventus

January 18, 2023 - 6:00 pm

Since the start of the season, neither Federico Gatti nor Daniele Rugani has been an automatic starter at Juventus. Both men have featured on some occasions, but Max Allegri has recently opted for a Brazilian back-three comprised of Danilo, Gleison Bremer and Alex Sandro.

But due to the latter’s decline, there could be an opening in defense. But which Italian will seize the opportunity?

Apparently, the manager has already given his preference to the tried and tested defender over the newcomer.

According to la Gazzetta dello Sport via TuttoJuve, the Bianconeri have no intentions of depriving themselves from the services of Rugani in the middle of the campaign.

The source believes that the 28-year-old holds the trust of his coach, so he’ll definitely remain until June. Afterwards, the club will assess the situation and make a decision over his future. His current contract expires in 2024.

On the contrast, the same source claims that Federico Gatti is yet to convince Allegri. Hence, the management would be open to send him on loan for the next six months.

Juve FC say

At the moment, we’re already suffering from a lack of personnel at the back. So unless a new players arrives in January (which doesn’t seem to the case), Juventus must not allow any player to leave in the middle of the campaign.

Furthermore, we should remember that this remains Gatti’s maiden campaign in Serie A, so committing mistakes is a part of the learning process.

    So Rugani can make countless mistakes, particularly in decisive UCL games, but Gatti is not allowed to make any mistakes? Gatti >> Rugani is every department and needs to be given more chances. Allegri has lost the plot in the last 18 months and continues to destroy this once proud club.

    Will well well what a shocker. He is going to destroy this club being repair, we are already not in the football conversation at the highest level or even an afterthought. Absolute banter. Chiesa,Vlahovic, Bremer and Gatti must be annoyed, it’s sad that their careers will regress or come to a stand still because of the dinosaur, and they ranted to join or club, not the laughing stock continues but will best Monza and we will just be negative for the sake of it #BanterEra

    I think Gatti have been fairly solid in most of the games he`s been featuring with the exemption of the Monza game and against Mbappe. He was also very good against Englad a while ago. Allegri does this shit were young players get benched for long periods of times after making a mistake or having a poor game. Look at recent matches were Fagioli have been benched after he did not have the best of games against Cremonese, allthough he was not bad. Yet McKennie plays every game and he is absolutely out of his dept and cant even make simple passes.

    Besides a player like Gatti need to play besides players with experience and quality. Instead he find himself playing with Rugani, Bonucci and Sandro. And I have to point this out, Danilo is so over hyped. As a right back he is almost useless. As a central defender he at best gets the job done. Please dont give this guy a new contract.
