Milan Used Chelsea target Higuain wrongly
Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri has claimed that Chelsea target Gonzalo Higuain wasn’t used to his strengths while at Milan while Kevin Prince Boateng move is suited to a striker role.
Allegri speaking after his side secured a 3-0 win over Chievo in the Monday Serie A with Douglas Costa, Emre Can and Daniele Rugani on the scoresheet after Cristiano Ronaldo missed his first penalty in the league.
“There could’ve been a bit of carelessness, but the lads showed quality and maturity. We risked conceding just once.
“It’s a nice win and now we move on. Dybala? Seeing him play like he did is a pleasure. Maybe he’ll be disappointed because he didn’t score, but he’ll become a truly great player.
“He can’t be as clear-headed if he plays deeper and gets a bit disheartened, so he must stay on this path.
“Ronaldo? I never watch penalties, although he missed one in the morning too. Khedira? He took a blow to the knee and we’ll assess him in the next few hours.
“Emre Can? He had a good game, but he must use the ball quicker. Alex Sandro? He’s playing like a real player this season.
“It’s not that he didn’t last season, but he showed what he could do in his first season. On the other side we have Cancelo and De Sciglio with different characteristics.
On Boateng transfer to Barcelona
“Boateng at Barcelona? I played him as a No 10 at Milan, but in practice it was he who played as our striker.
Allegri added that Milan wasted Higuain strenghts
“Higuain at Chelsea? I don’t know yet. I had him for two years and it went well but if you don’t find the right chemistry, unfortunately, you can’t give your best.”
