Allegri Reveals Reasons to Backup Gonzalo Higuain
Juventus victory over Torino in the sixth game of the Italian League 2017-2018 on Sunday (24/09/2017) early morning hrs.
In the game titled Derby della Molle held at the Allianz Stadium, four goals scored by Paulo Dybala Juventus in the minutes to-16 and 90, Miralem Pjanic 40 minutes, and Alex Sandro 57 minutes.
The biggest surprise of Juventus came when the name Gonzalo Higuain disappeared from the main players list and just sat on the bench.
Higuain did play after replacing Mario Mandzukic in the 80th minute, but still many are wondering with coach Max Allegri’s decision to reserve the Argentine player.
In the game, Allegri installed Mandzukic as a single striker with support from Juan Cuadrado, Paulo Dybala, and Douglas Costa.
“Higuain is on the bench because there will be a lot of games and I want to give him a break,” Allegri said as quoted by BolaSport.com from Mediaset Premium.
“He’s an important player for us,” Allegri said of Higuain’s role at Juventus.
Allegri added, the rotation of players is one thing mandatory if Juventus want to play consistently throughout the season.
The former AC Milan coach also believes Higuain will soon add a record of two goals already scored this season.
Allegri advised Higuain to ignore criticism and was unfazed and burdened with an immediate goal for the Old Lady.
