Allegri: In The Absence of Morata, Chiesa can be a Striker.
Allegri in his Serie A pre-match press says Federico Chiesa can play as an out-and-out striker.
The Italian forward scored the winning goal when Chelsea face Juventus on Wednesday in the champions league.
Heres is everything Allegri had to say about Chiesa.
“This is not the new Juve of Allegri,” he said in his press conference. “With Chelsea, there were some absentees. We played without Dybala and Morata, and in that game, we saw that Chiesa can be a centre-forward.”
Juventus will play against Torino in the Derby della Mole on Saturday evening and he expects a tough game against the Granata.
“The fans are back, it will be a good match,” Allegri said.
“We have to fix the ranking: we have to give ourselves another result. We face a Torino that runs, press.
“Juric is doing a great job, he is a coach who has passed on to the team concepts of how to play that embody the Granata spirit.
“It will be a complicated game, we will have to respond blow by blow.”
