Massimo Ambrosini reacts to Di Maria’s Juventus debut

August 16, 2022 - 11:00 am

Former AC Milan player Massimo Ambrosini has reacted to Angel di Maria’s first game for Juventus.

The attacker joined the Bianconeri as a free agent in this transfer window, and he is expected to become an important piece of their attack.

He was one of the key men at his former club PSG, and they play much differently when compared to Juventus.

The Bianconeri are more defensive in their approach and bank on counter-attacks to score goals.

However, PSG is a more attacking team that keeps knocking the ball around the opponent’s half.

Ambrosini says Di Maria would have realised the difference in how both clubs play after his first match for Juve.

He said, as quoted by Tuttomercatoweb:

“An adjective for his evening? Effective and decisive. He found a different team because PSG tended to play in the opposing area while this Juve plays a little further back. but in the games it was decisive.”

Juve FC Says

Di Maria is a seasoned professional, and he has worked with different managers during his career.

His time at Manchester United, Benfica and Real Madrid would have taught him how to adapt to different systems.

That should help him thrive as a Juventus player from this campaign.

    It’s interesting that fans often say our best players would be more effective with a coach other than Allegri. Well, you do know that the likes of Locatelli, Vlahovic, Di Maria & Pogba all knew that Max Allegri was the coach of Juventus when he signed for the club in the last 12 months. What constitutes a dinosaur these days? Max Allegri has won the number of trophies he has won because of his style of play. You may not like it & that’s fine but he is an elite coach and his record proves that. It’s interesting that Klopp, Tuchel & Conte are rightly revered as world-class managers, but Max Allegri has won more career trophies than every one of them. That’s an undisputable fact.

    If it was up to the so called fans who are only interested in seeing Allegri out Di Maria would not be bought by Juve. But Allegri knows what he is doing and did well to bring him over. Di Maria may be old but he is still an exceptional player. His experience as well as his technical quality and perhaps most important intelligence on the pitch are qualities which Juve severely lacked last year.
