Few players can claim to have had his career. Angel Di Maria has played in the best leagues and in the biggest clubs in the world, especially during his time at Real Madrid. He almost always managed to win his place, except at Manchester United, when he was often faced with squads with a plethora of stars like Paris Saint-Germain for example. At Juventus, he is no exception to this habit and he seems ready to integrate Massimiliano Allegri’s eleven over time if his body leaves him alone. At 34, the Argentinian has a pivotal year to play for the Turin club with which he is linked only until next June (an additional optional year being integrated into his contract).
El Fideo was also very quickly integrated into the Juventini squad. From the first friendly match of the Old Lady, the former Parisian scored his first personal achievement with his new club. A few days later, the Argentinian was behind the Bianconeri’s first goal against Deportivo Guadalajara. His remote-controlled corner, of which he has the secret, arrived on the head of Federico Gatti who found the post but Marco Da Graca had followed well to conclude closely. During the following friendlies, the twirling winger became calmer, until his official debut in Serie A. His first match in the Italian league was the perfect opportunity for him to prove, if it were still necessary, that he is still a very high level player.
A first match of all beauty and then goes away
Dynamite at heart, not stingy in effort, always ready to sacrifice himself for the collective, El Fideo walked on the meeting before having to go out because of an unfortunate muscle injury. In less than 66 minutes, he had already scored and offered an assist to Dusan Vlahovic. The Argentinian international missed the next two matches in order to get treatment, Massimiliano Allegri and all the Turin medical staff not wanting to take any risks with him. For his return, he came into play during the victory of the Turinese against La Spezia (2-0, 4th day). And this weekend, the Old Lady could not do better than the draw against Fiorentina (1-1, 5th day). A game during which the Argentinian was replaced at the break by Mattia De Sciglio, who has a much more defensive profile, when his coach made a tactical reshuffle.
Enough to ensure him a starting place against PSG in Champions League ? Not sure. Nevertheless, he will certainly remain a significant offensive option for the transalpine coach of Juventus when it comes to making his composition or bringing him onto the pitch at the Parc des Princes as a substitute. In any case, the supporters of the Turin club can be delighted to have such a good element in their team. A few weeks before the World Cup, if he is on the pre Tuesday evening, it’s a safe bet that Angel Di Maria will want to prove that he deserves his place, even at 34, within the team. from Argentina. And that he would even have deserved to be extended for an additional year at Paris Saint-Germain. Besides, don’t we say that revenge is a dish best served cold? El Fideo will at least have the opportunity to respond to his former team on the pitch.
