Massimiliano Allegri wary of Torino threat, gives Asamoah injury update


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says that he is taking the threat of Torino seriously ahead of tomorrow's Serie A derby.

The Bianconeri will this afternoon finish their last training session before the game with the manager set to assess all players before selecting the starting line-up.

"[Giampiero] Ventura is an excellent coach, he always enjoyed positive results and he's showing it at Torino," Allegri said.

"They enjoyed a very positive season last year and at the moment they have the same number of points as their last campaign.

"So they are dangerous, very organised and possess a squad with a number of very good players.

"As for the starting line-up, I have to assess the players since we have a training session in the afternoon.

"I will assess especially those involved in the game against Malmo.

"In respect to the midfielders, I consider myself lucky to have all these players, players who are in the list of the best in the world.

"[Arturo] Vidal needs to play. We all know his conditions after the World Cup finals so he's maybe slightly behind all the others.

"But I'm happy with his performances. Unfortunately many believe that he's having bad games because he's not scoring goals, but he's an important player, even when he doesn't score.

"[Patrice] Evra is recovered, he worked with the group and is ready for tomorrow's game. He's important, a player who spent ten years at Manchester, and is ready to show good things in Italy as well.

"[Kwadwo] Asamoah will undergo surgery. As for when he will be back, it could be two months as it could be three or three-and-a-half."
