"This is an imperfect Juve" - Moggi

Sun 29 November 2020 | 13:36

The former club manager, Luciano Moggi believes the Bianconeri have yet to find an “identity” under head coach Andrea Pirlo.

Even though the team coached by rookie boss

Pirlo'

s are undefeated in this season, they have five draws of their nine matches and have lost important ground in the title race. 

The 1-1 draw by Benevento was their latest match which was on Saturday.

With Cristiano Ronaldo not playing,

Moggi

thinks that results should still be better.

For the moment, this is an imperfect Juve,

” he told. 

Ronaldo would be fundamental for any team, but if in his absence you don’t beat against either Crotone or Benevento, it means that there is a problem.

Meanwhile, he declined to join in on the discussion as to whether Paulo Dybala or Alvaro Morata should start in attack.

They’re two different strikers, but equally useful to the team with the characteristics they have,” he said. “There is no rivalry between them but both will be important throughout the season, even if Pirlo’s team have yet to find a tactical identity. Juventus’ problem is to get back on track as a great team that goes to attack their opponents in the last 16 meters.

"

When playing with quality, and when they are attacking and asserting their superiority, Dybala becomes essential. This is because he knows how to beat a man, sees gaps and creates space for his team-mates

"

Otherwise, Morata would be better because his movement from 40 metres out can lead him to getting clear in front of the opposing goalkeeper, a situation in which he has a cool head to score.

Pirlo

was the one to make it as Juventus manager last summer, having only been elected as coach of the club's under-23 side days earlier.
