The “Displaced”, if it were not already the title of a good film by John Huston (with Marilyn Monroe and Clarck Gable) could well summarize the current Juventus. There is no player in his seat or almost. Even the goalkeeper should be one who sets the action from behind with his feet, capable of entertaining a series of deadly horizontal passes.Of Kulusevski it has been said ad abundantiam. From a good counter-attacker, used to the prairies (when they chose him, didn’t they see that he always played like this?), He became, in order, a midfielder, an attacking midfielder, to return to a wing and then a midfielder almost in cover, in a whirlwind of roles in which ended up not understanding anything anymore. Bernardeschi, striker, is now full-back. Danilo, a backward handyman, who occasionally plays in front of the defense. Church goes right to left, left to right.
Rabiot e Ramsey they seem role misfits and their use is the most consistent: you put them there, somewhere, in the hope that they will do something. The idea of completely changing the role of adult players has worked well a few times (Tardelli, Pirlo…) but often has not been successful. Doing it with five or six in every game is too high a risk. The bad result was seen in Pirlo’s Juve. To tell the truth, yes Dybala had been distorted by Allegri with duties as a midfielder (he had managed the game of jokers with many others), but now it seems that the season of morph and wildcards is over: this year he taught that it is not worth buying a winger to make him the midfielder or a second striker to give him directorial duties.
We don’t really know what Juventus can do to straighten a skidded boat (not just because of the manager’s responsibility). To sell Rabiot e Ramsey it will not be easy; it should be, instead, to choose players who know how to be comfortable in their place. With a clear pact: do not expect others, different at each game, to occupy them in rotation.
