Ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League game between Chelsea and Juventus in Turin, Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has hit out at Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot for his unacceptable goal return for Juventus.

Since joining from Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent, Rabiot has flattered to deceive, scoring just six times in 89 appearances for Juventus.

“Rabiot is available, his ankle is fine, so he’ll be available,” Allegri said, via Goal. “If a big club like Juve chose these players there is a reason, the mentality makes the difference.

“They must be very determined in attending the training sessions, scoring, defending, these elements make the difference. How many good technical players haven’t been able to explode in their careers?

“If I was Rabiot I’d be very angry with myself, how many goals has he scored in two years here? Ten? It’s not acceptable, if I were him, I’d be very upset.

“He needs to improve all these things to get really better and I am sure he’ll be able to do it this year.”
