After having gone through a delicate period, the Old Lady finished the season strong. In the fight with both Milan and Lazio for a place in the Champions League, Massimiliano Allegri’s men won a precious success at the 6th in Serie A, Atalanta, this Sunday (0-2). A victory that allows Adrien Rabiot’s teammates to now have a five-point lead over AC Milan, 5th.
A match in which Paul Pogba notably played 26 minutes, while the French returned to the field, after a relapse, in mid-April. The former Manchester United player is obviously far from his best level, but he could help his partners at the end of the season with the Europa League semi-finals looming this week. In a press conference, his trainer spoke about him.
“This season has been cursed for him”
“Paul Pogba played a good last 20 minutes the other day (against Lecce editor’s note), recognizes the Italian technician. In terms of technique and physique, he is a different player from the others. Sadly, this season has been doomed for him. I have to try to use him in the best possible way so that he can help the team. For now, it doesn’t matter if you play 15 or 60 minutes, the goal is to get into the top 4 and reach the Europa League final.”
A victory for Juve in the Europa League would also qualify the third in Ligue 1 directly for the group stages of the Champions League, if the Turinese manage to stay in the Top 4. For this, the suspension of the 15 penalty points imposed on the club will have to be maintained, otherwise the Bianconeri will fall in the middle of the table.
