Chiesa unhappy with his role in Juventus formation

February 20, 2023 - 6:00 pm

Federico Chiesa missed most of last year with an injury and has only just started getting some minutes for the Bianconeri.

The attacker still cannot play three games in one week and Juve is trying to ensure he gets enough rest between matches.

Max Allegri is famed for using a 4-3-3 formation over the years and Chiesa functions well in that setup as one of the wide attackers.

However, the Bianconeri gaffer now uses a 3-5-2 formation and has to play with wing-backs.

This means the former Fiorentina man has to adjust to a new setup and Il Bianconero reports that he has not been pleased.

They claim Chiesa does not enjoy being used as a wing-back in some cases and prefers the 4-3-3 setup, where he plays much closer to the opponent’s goal.

Juve FC Says

Chiesa is one of our key players and he is so good he can decide a match on his own, which is one reason we always have to have him in the squad.

However, one key attribute of some of the finest players around is adapting to new systems and the Euro 2020 winner needs to learn to make these adjustments.

    being played out of position, approach and tactics for his attributes, allegri speciality. but hey let`s just say he has to change his WHOLE CAREER for a dinosaur. no. no he`s not. he will be away, just like Vlahovic, Locatelli who`s career is at a standstill if not slipping backwards, and the others who are half decent. The gaslighting and copium is amazing. btw put perin as a centre forward, he has to adapt, right? Any decent player staying if allegri is, is asking for their career to be doomed.

      Can you believe this trash? Change what has made you successful, to appease a horrible coach, because he can’t utilize you to your strengths?

    Allegri must be jailed if he plays Chiesa as a wingback again. This is what Beppe Iachini did at Fiorentina. Allegri belongs on manager Island with all the baseball caps!!

      What alegri is doing is unbelievable, changing board management is not enough, we have a good squad, but it seems that even the new board is weak, changing the coach is a must what alegri is doing any coach can do, he is not doing somthing extraordinary, I only hope to keep our players for next season, the situation with alegri is unbearable

    Multiple players have had to play out of position. At this point we need to do whatever we need to do to win Chiesa included.

    No, he does not need to make such an adjustment to his game. He needs to be played where he makes the biggest impact. In that case, why isn’t Di Maria played as a wingback? Allegri destroys good players and needs to be removed before he does more damage to this playing group and to Juve’s reputation. Enough already!!!

    OMG, who writes this trash? Is that you Allegri, Agnelli? NO, NO, NO! This is why Allegri sucks. He has talented players, and he keeps moving them around to fit HIS system. Would you take a blood hound and run him in a dog race? Would you take a quarter horse and run him against thoroughbreds? STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR THIS HORRIBLE MANAGER! Chiesa, Vlahovic, Locatelli, Bremer, they will all be gone soon if this teradactyl stays at the helm of this sinking ship. Then what, you need to go find replacements which will cost more than to throw Allegri out with yesterday’s trash!

    I remember Pirlo was attacking midfielder – before Ancelotti change it to Regista – and very2 successful. Likewise, with Thiery Henry, Arsene Wenger. The difference is those coach are genius. Allegri is dinosaur !!!
