Yeah, he has barely put a foot wrong when called upon this season. Sure, he makes a few stupid fouls here and there and looks a bit nervous at times - but he’s still young for a CB and has huge room for improvement. His aerial ability, anticipation and man-marking are all pretty top notch imo. And like N96 says, pretty tidy on the ball too.
Thats why he needs a good run of games, for him to be aware that he can do it.

He is getting good minutes but he could even get more

Rugani is good but he looks weird with the ball or even when he runs without it. It's like he's not meant to play this sport lol. Chiellini and Licht also like this too. I guess some players do have some weird body movement while some are more natural fit to play this sport

I'm sceptical about Rugani myself, but calling out mistakes which could have cost us doesn't qualify as hate, does it?

On the other hand, i get the feeling there are users who actively chose to rate him, solely based on their personal dislike for Bonucci.
I wouldn't say that's hate at all. Linebreak, Juliano13, and a few others call him rubbish (or worse) often. That's hate.

I think Rugani makes mistakes that most young defenders make. However, something I have noticed with him is that he most often recovers very well from his mistakes and seems to learn from them.

We also have an amazing defensive record with him, so he must be doing something right over the course of games. He makes very few bad mistakes imo, but because he's young and trying to break into our starting XI for a significant period of time now, he's under the microscope for every little thing he does on the pitch (same deal with Bonucci though for a different reason, an irrational personal dislike for him).

The thing with Rugani he is not a finished product, still in the learning curve and we can’t forgive him if he will cost us the CL. He can toy around the league teams, but in CL he will got toyed badly. I hope he will rise his game.

Thank god Rugani isn’t mediocre like Couscous breath who was a major factor in costing us CL last season. Between his 3 straight games with yellow cards that left him suspended for first leg against Real, and then the “penalty.”

:seven:

He didn't cost us the CL, it was very doubtful call from the referee and you know that. Hope your boy Rugani will deliver, otherwise Benatia Couscous will find his way to penetrate back.

this is also from our website about his importance for this team, enjoy his Couscous

Wait? That says we only won 42 of 59 games (71%) in which he played? 42 wins - 8 losses - 9 draws. :lol2: Wow. He was far worse than I thought. Praise the lord we got rid of that bum.

With Rugani we've won 65 of the 75 games (87%) he's played in. 65 wins - 6 losses - 4 draws.

I wonder which is better? 71% or 87%. :think:

He’s one year younger than Varrane. He is not as young as some make him.

Oh for sure. But I don't expect most defenders to be the polished article in their early 20s... I rate Varane, but not to the extent that some do. Madrid's strength was in its attacking prowess and having a passable defence. It obviously worked very well for them, but place Varane in a team that relied more on stopping the opponent scoring instead of just outscoring them, and it gets a wee bit more difficult.

When did he actually played 87% and more than benatia. :rofl:. See am not her to convince anyone about him. I just give credit to him and how key player was for us and his experiance, being replaced by a mistake prone CB and young boy still pee on himself and treated unfairly by Allegri, when we are in need for experianced CB like him. Imagine Chellini get injured too, waaaw i just want to see the response here, Rugani and Caceres:rofl:. Add to that, because his couscous and Arab , i see degrading posts for him in a supposed civilized forum which is disappointing.

Last: from my heart, i wish rugani excels and prove me wrong. I want finally win the CL after 20 years of fucking wait.

Are you confused by something? Do you not understand English? :shifty:

Rugani has played in 75 matches in his time at Juventus. We have won 65 of those matches (lost 6 - drew 4). Which is 87%.

Benatia played in 59 matches in his time at Juventus. We won 42 of those matches (lost 8 - drew 9). Which is only 71% :rofl:

Imagine understanding simple statistics. :baus:
