"I hope I stopped in time." So Miralem Pjanic commented warmly on his physical situation, after the muscle injury that forced him to change a quarter of an hour from the Bosnia-Italy deadline. "I have also had previous problems with the supplier over the past few weeks and I hope to be released in time to prevent a further problem. I felt pain, but I hope it's not serious, "continued the bianconero director. And waiting for the instrumental examinations which will confirm the extent of the muscle problem with a possible stop prediction, there are basically two questions that blend into the environment. The first, without an answer: why is the rope pulled so much at this stage of the season? Even Pjanic after Ronaldo, in general there are already eight players to have played well over a thousand minutes, yet the rose so deep had to serve this too. The second, that instead of the answers he has them: without an irreplaceable like Pjanic, what can be done?THE ALTERNATIVES – There are two options available to Maurizio Sarri. A ready to use, practically natural: bring back Rodrigo Bentancur in front of the defense, regaining that role as vice-Pjanic with which he arrived in Turin two seasons ago, only to convince a lot more from midfielder or even from tactical midfielder as in the last period. A more futuristic one, on which Sarri has not yet had the opportunity to work what he had hoped for in this first part of the season: Adrien Rabiot. That is the future of the French midfielder, the Juventus coach said it and reiterated it on more than one occasion, also explaining how in this acclimatization phase he could not follow the first summer experiments too much. Then everything will depend on the extent of Pjanic's injury. Because without him it will be in any case a completely different Juve, the 150 balls project immediately put him at the center and together with Leonardo Bonucci he turned out to be the real essential player of this very first Sarri era, even more than Cristiano Ronaldo. Not much.
