De Ligt should be the star signing of the summer in Juventus, but so far he is disappointing. The Dutch again failed in the last game and in the Italian press charged against him. In Juve, however, they continue defending him
Matthijs Of Ligt is being one of the big disappointments of the season in Europe. The central Italian arrived by more than 80 million euros to Turín this summer to lead to the saga juventina, but is not surrendering to the height of the expectations. It has had numerous failures in the two months and half of competition that have played and in Italy doubt of him.
The Italian press does not forgive him one and every time that commits an error load against him with hardness. Against the Lecce, this past Saturday, committed a penalti absurd by hand that finished meaning the tie of the local group. The Juve left two points in the Via of the Mare and, for many, the main manager was the Dutch.
In the Gazzetta dello Sport even aim if the problem with the ex captain of the Ajax goes further and accuse him to have "anxiety" by not having "more cunning with these situations". In the Ran dello Sport also criticised him, but did not analyse in depth his bad performances since it landed in the Juve.
But in the Juventus know that the Dutch youngster has to be important on a long-term basis and therefore they have closed rows with him. His mate in the saga, the veteran Leonardo Bonucci, gave the face by his mate and defended him after the Lecce-Juve. "It is only a moment, it will happen. These situations suceden in the area and the instinct carries you to do it", began saying the ex milanista.
Bonucci, that knows to spare the complicated that it is to defend in the Series To when it is young, admitted that it was not fault of Of Ligt the tie and threw him a 'hood' in this bad moment. "When suceden these things have a bit of insecurity and is normal, but Matthijs has to feel comfortable because all have errors and bad moments. Has a big talent and trust he. If we do not win to the Lecce did not go by his fault, but by the one of all", recognised.
The defence of the club to Of Ligt
Also Fabio Paratici, sportive director bianconero, defended to the international 'orange' and preferred to not to give him importance to his errors in this beginning of campaign. "The world of the Juve is happy to have a talent of 20 home allocated years to be the defence of the future", aimed the technical secretary of the 'Vecchia Signora'.
