Massimiliano Allegri on the Fiorentina game, reveals rotation options


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says he is not concerned following long-term injuries to Kwadwo Asamoah and Romulo.

The Ghanaian is expected to be ruled out for four months after suffering a knee injury and will be joined by winger Romulo who will be sidelines for three months after undergoing surgery.

"No, I'm not worried about injuries," Allegri said.

"Also, [Angelo] Ogbonna is back in the squad and he can be an important asset as he showed in this first half of the season.

"As for [Kwadwo] Asamoah and Romulo, yes, unfortunately these are two injuries we have to deal with but I believe [Patrice] Evra is improving, he needs to play.

"There's also [Simone] Padoin who did well on that wing. We also have [Federico] Mattiello, a young lad who is eager to impress, a player who will surely play if required.

"As for Fiorentina, they are doing well, they won their last two away games including an easy win at Cagliari. Playing in Firenze is never easy but we have to do our best to get a positive result."

Juventus have a very important Champions League game coming up and Allegri says rotation could be an option tomorrow evening.

"There could be some changes," the Italian said.

"We have [Sebastian] Giovinco up front, we have [Kingsley] Coman, [Simone] Padoin could cover as right back. [Roberto] Pereyra can surely replace one of the midfielders.

"Today we have a training session and I will assess everyone."
