Since Juventus only have one point in three Serie A matches this season, the Italian media is of course trying to explain what’s been going on at the club.
The Old Lady had two major outgoings this summer, which were Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure to Manchester United and Fabio Paratici’s move to Tottenham Hotspur.
More than the Portuguese star’s exit, it’s the football director who’s often in the spotlight, getting blamed for not making the squad as strong as he should, even though he joined Spurs in late June.
So we get another example of it today, where Calcio Mercato debated his fault in Juventus’ recent results. Enrico Camelio is one of those who criticise the official.
“The faults of Paratici? I only say this: Pellegrini on the left, De Sciglio on the right. He could never win against Napoli. Pellegrini would be at the bench at Genoa, let’s not joke,” Camelio said live on CMTV.
With Paratici’s move to Tottenham being made official in early July, Juventus still had a couple of months to improve their squad. Still, all they managed to do since then were the signings of Sassuolo’s Manuel Locatelli, Santos’ Kaio Jorge and Everton’s Moise Kean.
In that time, Spurs managed the signings of Pierluigi Gollini, Cristian Romero, Pepe Sarr, Emerson Royal and Bryan Gil.
