But why are we even thinking of offering a new contract when he needs to constantly have his hand help? He is the furthest thing from a leader of all our CBs. He isn't the ferocious type either. He sucks at 1v1. He can't pass nearly as well as Bonucci. He will never tackle like Chiellini. He sometimes scores and can head the ball well. LIterally, that's all I can think of.
Nah. He was very good for us the last two years, rock solid positionally, and didn't put a foot wrong for the most part.

Unfortunately, he's looking pretty poor right now, especially since the Benatia transfer, seems to be struggling with the pressure of being No 1 Juve defender and having to step up in the absence of Bonucci-Chiellini. SO a bit of a mental weakling, it seems.

With the right partner, can be a very effective defender. Now, it depends on whether you want to tied to a defender who needs a perfect complement in his CB partner to be effective. It suggests that you have to possess at least two such perfect partners, if not 3, in the squad to cover for injuries. It's tough to have defenders so reliant on a specific type of partner on the backline to express their best.

Paratici has his work cut out.


Needs to replace long-term Barzagli and someone to fill Benatai's shoes. Then he needs to figure out what the hell to do with this guy.

That's a big issue because he can't have Chiellini hold his hand every match he plays. Not gonna happen. Would rather sell and try to bring back Caldara or find another guy.

Sarri would take him if he still has job at Chelsea in summer.

hes obviously not on Benatias level. Benatia is not only superior player in every aspect of the game, but hes also a leader on the pitch. he knows how to control a defense, Rugani still doesent

not replacing him was a mistake that could cost us
