Midfielder Adrien Rabiot, long in decline at Juventus, can always count on the unwavering support of his coach Massimiliano Allegri. The France international, author of a double and, more importantly, a full game against Maccabi Hafa (3-1) in the Champions League on Wednesday, sparks a debate about his future.
Adrien Rabiot revitalizes Juventus.
Adrien Rabiot has not been spared criticism in recent months. In the France team and at Juventus, the midfielder was often singled out for his overly neutral contribution.
But in this difficult period, and despite an aborted transfer to Manchester United last summer’s transfer window, the former Parisian has always had strong support in Turin coach Massimiliano Allegri.
Rabiot, an undeniable holder
A total confidence that was also felt in relation to the status of the hab, undisputed owner at the beginning of the season. Always in the starting XI when he was fit, Rabiot used that situation to find some sporting colour. On Wednesday, the 27-year-old’s two goals were crucial in his team’s victory over Maccabi Hafa (3-1).
This is absolutely no surprise. He’s a player who’s improved a lot. He’s 27 now, which is the best age to reach a milestone. He’s proved he’s a great player, I think he still has room for improvement. He scored two goals, things are slowly taking their course. I think he’s entering the most important years of his career., Allegri judged in a press conference. But in addition to his offensive efficiency, he also characterized a complete performance with a lot of defensive work and a nice cleanliness in his transfers.
An impact on his future
In the short term, despite the doubts, Rabiot appears to be on track to secure his place in the French group for the 2022 World Cup. While some of his rivals have physical issues, the Saint-Maurice native has always been appreciated for his profile by coach Didier Deschamps. And at this level he is scheduled to fly to Qatar in November.
This good period could have long-term implications as well. Because currently at the end of the contract in June 2023, Rabiot seems to be leaving the old lady, in particular to reduce the salary. But internally, Allegri is very seriously pushing for the Frenchman to be extended. If possible negotiations with his clan already seem complex, the ex-Toulouse has everything to gain by continuing his spear.
