Allegri: Sturaro Can Play The Right Bek Role
Juventus coach Max Allegri ensures Stefano Sturaro can play the right-back position against Sporting Lisbon.
Stephan Liechtsteiner is not included in the Champions League squad, so with Injuries In Sciglio and Howedes, Sturaro or Andrea Barzagli will play the right-back role.
“There are two solutions, Sturaro or Barzagli,” Allegri said.
“More than the Sporting game character, it’s about who made me sure. Sturaro performed well in the right-back position and I think it is a position he can play to the fullest.
“I have to assess the latest practice sessions, but there may be changes. I have to see for myself how the players are practicing, but all the players are in good shape.
“Pjanic will be back and Khedira has improved, who can not yet come back is Marchisio, De Sciglio, Howedes and Pjaca who over time can follow the development of the team.
“Pjanic can play on the pitch, he is still resting and I will see his progress in training sessions.”
