Juventus star Angel Di Maria is considered one of the best in world football, but it’s also his manager’s job to decide if he is.
With Di Maria struggling to hold down a regular place at the heart of Juve’s attack, there are those who believe it is his team-mates who are at fault.
While they’re undoubtedly talented, there’s a belief among those in charge that the problem lies with the likes of Angel di Maria, who’s struggled to hold on to a regular spot in the side.
That was confirmed by Juve manager Maurizio Sarri during his press conference ahead of their game against Fiorentina on Wednesday.
“When we are playing, Angel Di Mina is the best player in the world, but I believe the problem is his position,” he said.
“It is the same for all of us.
Every player is capable of scoring goals, but he’s not the only one.”
We need him to hold his position.
“The coach is right.
Di Maria’s role has been questioned by some, but the fact that he’s been unable to take up a consistent starting spot is one that has been a major concern for many.
This year, he’s missed the last three matches and only started twice last term, the only time he was in the starting XI.
Sarri was asked if the lack of quality has affected Di Maria, and he replied that his decision to start Di Maria on the right wing had helped the team.”
That was enough for the Juventus boss to admit that he was concerned about the position of Di Maria.””
But we have to give him the chance to show what he can do on the left.”
