Italian League News: New Juventus midfielder, Leandro Paredes, revealed that coach Massimiliano Allegri expects him to make frequent vertical passes.
The Argentina national team midfielder was recruited by the Old Lady in the closing days of the summer transfer window. He is on loan from Paris Saint-Germain with an option for a permanent deal worth 22.6 million euros.
Many argue that the transfer of Paredes is unnecessary as Juventus already have a large number of midfielders, but his arrival was a specific request from coach Massimiliano Allegri.
The 28-year-old player immediately played as starter in two consecutive matches since joining, although Juve failed to win over Fiorentina (1-1) and also PSG (1-2) in both matches.
Speaking at his self-introduction press conference, Leandro Paredes revealed that Allegri specifically asked him to make frequent vertical passes forward.
“I have arrived at a club with great players and a coach. I am happy to be here and hope to be able to contribute in every game,” said Paredes, quoted from Football-Italy.
“When I arrived here the coach asked me to make vertical passes, I knew I could do that to the team. I like finding the ball close to the defense and I will keep trying to do better.”
Paredes is expected to be able to give Juventus their first win in the Serie A match against Salernitana, Monday (12/9) early morning WIB.
