Allegri trust Juve’s young players and is not fazed by Vlahovic’s

Dusan Vlahovic may have been sidelined with a groin injury but Massimiliano Allegri isn’t concerned about his top goalscorer’s absence

Despite being


’ best goal scorer this season with 7 goals and two assists in all competitions,

Dusan Vlahovic

has struggled with a groin injury in the past few months. The injury has even limited his time at the World Cup but Juve boss Allegri isn’t overly concerned about his star striker’s absence.

After Juventus’ 1-1 draw with Standard Liege on Friday, Allegri spoke about Vlahovic’s absence, saying:

"No. I'm never worried, think what philosophy of life I have. I see all things as an opportunity.

"If we had had [Paul] Pogba and all the great players we have, perhaps [Fabio] Miretti, [Nicolo] Fagioli would not have played.

"They are all good to say: 'Don't let young players play'. Young players, unless they are extraordinary players, play if certain situations arise."

Allegri went on to also comment on Pogba, who has been injured ever since joining from Manchester United on a free agent, stating that:

"Pogba has been running for four to five days, he's been doing work and his knee is responding well.

"Then there's [Mattia] De Sciglio who's working, [Juan] Cuadrado ran and his knee doesn't bother him, [Leonardo] Bonucci's inflammation is slowly improving. We need to be confident and concentrate on what we have."

Allegri concluded his talk by giving an update on

Federico Chiesa

’s fitness as well.

"Today he had personalized and therefore differentiated work planned, yesterday he was part of the team and I saw him very well, even too much and I stopped him,"
