Juventus: the serious mea-culpa of Adrien Rabiot in the face of criticism


In the hard side of Juventus, Adrien Rabiot understood the content of the criticisms towards him. The French environment will have to change its game accordingly.

Cardboard everywhere in Italy and annoying Juventus about his level of play, Adrien Rabiot (26) must do much more. Used 16 times this season in all competitions (1 donation), it has not started the last two matches of the Vecchia Signora and is more used on the left side than in the axis where the duo composed of Manuel Locatelli and Rodrigo Bentancur perform. A real blow for the French midfielder who stood out last season despite the complicated season for Juventus.

Slowly but surely losing his place as holder, Adrien Rabiot is aware that he must change things in the way he plays. In a press conference before challenging the Swedish club Malmö, the former Parisian made the observation: I have to score, I have not yet scored this season, but also to make assists. It would be good for me and for the team. I know I have to do more. “ Last season, he scored 5 goals and 3 offerings in 47 matches, but his contribution exceeded the statistical framework.

Adrien Rabiot must adapt

Whether in the double pivot or as a left winger, Adrien Rabiot is showing fairly neutral for the moment. Even if Juventus is raising its head recently with a rise to fifth place in Serie A (seven points from qualifying places in the Champions League), the midfielder with 24 selections for the France team is struggling to get out of the game. game. Aware that he will have to evolve to play, Adrien Rabiot has assimilated it: “I am a central midfielder, I prefer to play in the center, but I can also play on the side to help the team. I just have to adapt to what the coach wants. ”

Sometimes used for this position in the France team by Didier Deschamps, Adrien Rabiot will therefore have to improve to meet these requirements more. Whistled last Sunday against Genoa, the 26-year-old also gave an update on the criticisms he has recently suffered: “I’m a professional, I’ve been doing this job for ten years, I know football … I just have to focus on the pitch and give my all for this team, playing well is the only way to make a difference. I think I have progressed tactically in Italy, but I know that I still have to improve. I’m still young.” All that remains is to walk the talk.
