Juve is at the top in the standings with two wins in two games. Juve as seen at Siena, as well as the debut against Parma, finally has an idea of its game, has its own identity after years of doubt, changes and uncertainties. It’s too early to talk about the scudetto, but while waiting for stronger opponents, it seems to have found the right formula to make a mark.
It is all down to sacrifice and the willingness of the team, the talent of Pirlo, the attacker’s goals and the valuable work of the wingers. But from here they could get the problems. Milos Krasic, purchased a year ago from CSKA Moscow for 15 million euro and Eljero Elia, snatched from Hamburg for 9 million plus bonuses, are part of the project, but at the moment do not start. Even in Siena Conte chose Pepe, who gave an excellent performance and newcomer Giaccherini, leaving the Serbian and Dutch player on the bench.
Never change a winning team, but as for Elijah and Krasic, will they accept not being in the starting line up?
The situation with Krasic is particularly hot: Conte does not see him and does not consider him essential, but the investment made by the club "forces" him to be taken into consideration. But not to choose him for the starting line up. There is friction as we saw yesterday, as Krasic entered the pitch (then forced back on the bench again due to the injured Matri), the Serb responded with a grimace of "presumed incomprehension" to instructions of his coach. A problem to be solved before it's too late.
