Arthur Melo has not begun with good foot his stage in the Juventus of Turín. The Brazilian is not explaining too much for Andrea Pirlo in this start of season and has played only in three of the five parties that have contested the bianconeros. In total, only has contested 102 minutes of game in the Calcium, divided in 70 in front of the Crotone and 32 against the Rome, and 11 of Champions League, accumulating only a titularity.

His trainer even has criticised his style of game to justify his minutes, something that leaves clear that is far to be one of his midfield players preferred. "It is a particular player. Has characteristics of the Spanish football. His football is very short and is linked to the Barcelona. It looks little to forward. Still it touches too much the balloon, whereas in determinate occasions could accelerate. We are working in this", commented the Italian.

For now, Pirlo prefers to any one of his others mediocampistas, and Adrien Rabiot, Rodrigo Bentancur and Aaron Ramsey are clearly by in front of him. This did that Tite, seleccionador of Brazil, did without he in the past announcement, in which it preferred to Bruno Guimaraes, midfield player of the Olympique of Lyon. But for the next stop of selections, the technician has wanted to throw him a hand to his compatriot and this time yes has called him.

Guimaraes Has remained out of the list and Arthur will attend with his country after his last absence. The ex of the FC Barcelona will be able to play against Venezuela and Uruguay the meetings of classification for the World-wide of Qatar 2022. It will be a good proof of fire for him and a big opportunity to show him to Pirlo that deserves more minutes with the Juventus of Turín.

Tite Trusts he and left clear in press conference the reason by which has called him, in spite of not being playing too much. "I carry a lot in consideration the moment of the player, but also his historical in the Seleçao and his future projection, Arthur is 24 years old and did a big Glass America 2019, where went in in the selection of the championship, he has capacity for readaptarse, readjust and grow, because it is a young footballer and is important for us", affirmed.

Arthur has quality to go out of this situation

It will be necessary to see which performance gives the one of Goiana with the 'seleçao' in this so complicated moment for him. Has spare quality as to go out of the wrap in which it is, but everything goes to depend on his performance on the field and of his trainers. Tite Has remained clear that trusts fully in him, but Pirlo does not seem that it go to change of opinion in the weeks to come.
