Rabiot: ‘Juventus fans haven’t seen the real me’

by | Dec 7, 2021 17:25

Adrien Rabiot admits Juventus fans have not yet seen the ‘real’ midfielder, although he has already ‘improved tactically’ thanks to his time in Italy.

The final Champions League group game against Malmoe kicks off in Turin on Wednesday at 17.45 GMT.

The Bianconeri already secured Round of 16 qualification some time ago, but in order to top the group, they need to beat Malmoe and hope Chelsea don’t win away to Zenit St Petersburg.

“We must win and play well, because we can still finish top,” said Rabiot in his press conference.

The France international has been pushed to the bench in recent games after Max Allegri switched to a 4-2-3-1 formation, especially as he has been criticised by fans and media.

“I am a central midfielder, but I can adapt. I prefer to play centrally, but I can help out the team by playing in a wider role.

“The coach asks me to score goals and provide assists. It will be better for me and the team if I can improve these aspects of my game.”

Rabiot was asked if he was content with what he had achieved at Juventus since joining from PSG as a free agent, or if the criticism had got to him?

“I did some things well, others not, but I think above all I have improved tactically in Italy. We play very differently to the way I did in France.

“As for the jeers, I am a professional, I know football. I will give everything for the team, playing well, that is the only way to change things.

“I am well aware that fans haven’t yet seen the ‘real Rabiot’ here. I am still young, I can continue to improve and must find a way to achieve that. I am working on it.”

    potential is not the most important. Rabiot was too overated at PSG.
    Decision making is awful at times, not a future world beater by any means.

    “The real you”…. Please, man. Jf you can’t show the real you after three seasons, when exactly are “you” going to come out….??? This guy was another Paratici mistake – a desperate, overpaid and overrated free transfer, because we had to pay for Ronaldo, and his mother played Nedved and Paratici like silly violins… Go away, so we can get a proper midfielder…

    @FORZA Juve, keep the homophobic comments to yourself.

    As for Rabiot, sorry bud… you don’t “find yourself” at a club like Juve. Maybe our mgmt will understand that one day…

  5. I MISS MARCO BRANCA AT INTER

    Allegri keeps playing him out wide and he can’t play that position ! Regardless, if they get an offer for him unload him but dumping Ramsey should be the priority !

    Who’s fault is it then for playing him out of position?
