Massimiliano Allegri explains why he benched Federico Chiesa against Inter and insists he needs to rotate players otherwise he’ll need twenty new ones in January.

Chiesa was only introduced in the second half of Juventus’ Serie A clash against Inter on Sunday.

Allegri explained his choice in his pre-match press conference ahead of the match against Sassuolo.

Allegri: ‘Chiesa and Dybala to start, I got it wrong against Inter’

“Chiesa is a top player, he’s played many games already. On Sunday, I was wrong, but I had read the game in a different way, with Kulusevski man-marking Brozovic,” the Italian tactician said.

“It’s not a problem if a player starts on the bench, there are many games. Chiesa didn’t go on the bench because he deserved it. I had read the game in a certain way. Eventually, when he was introduced, we needed more quality and he had a great impact.

“Federico is a reference point for the national team and Juventus, but if I use the same players all the time, I’ll need 20 new players in January.

“We hope we’ll play 57 games this season and sometimes players must rest. They can benefit from it, physically and mentally.”
