So what of Ronaldo’s former side the Bianconerri? Well they are off to a stinker in Serie A succumbing to their second defeat in three against Napoli at the Diego Armando Maradona stadium. This was one error strewn match with both sides equally culpable. Manolas the first one to have to face the jury. The ex Roma defender gifting Morata the opener. Morata doesn’t get the credit he deserves sometimes but I like him , he is a fighter and chases lost causes , he got his just rewards there. Allegri’s return to Juventus, well I don’t think it was a good idea. Will tell you why at the end of this blog.
Goalkeeper Scesczny probably had a game he wishes he hadn’t played with two errors gifting the win for Napoli. The first he probably needed to just leave the Insigne shot as it was curling wide. The last was just poor handling by him gifting Koulibaly the winner. The Senegalese captain was also jittery in defense nearly gifting Kulusevsky a goal. Napoli great in possession whilst Juventus are lacking a dominant playmaker in the mould of Pirlo. Allegri inherited a squad which is aging and is failing to renew quickly. Pirlo left the team in disarray only scrapping into the champions league last season by the skin of their teeth. Now his job is under threat with the season barely started. I hope he pulls through he is one of the world’s best.
