Juventus Turn to Two Youngster in Time of Dire Need

With Danilo on the shelf, Massimiliano Allegri fielded Dean Huijsen late in the Milan clash to substitute for Federico Gatti, and the youngster didn’t have shaky legs at San Siro, while the boss announced that Joseph Nonge would be added to the first-team permanently following Paul Pogba and Nicolò Fagioli’s suspensions in the eve of the encounter.

The gaffer commented on the performance of the defender (via Tuttomercatoweb).

“I’m very happy for the debut of a kid who was born in 2005 and entered the game with a lot of tranquility. He’ll have a great career. He did something like Ciro Ferrara.”

The long-time staple is now a pundit for DAZN.

“He stopped Rafael Leao in his first intervention in Serie A, and I related to that. I made my first appearance in a pivotal match like Napoli-Juventus. I kicked Zbigniew Boniek right away. Instead, he was very good.”

The Dutchman extended his contract till 2027 in the summer, the publication adds. Ngonge is next in line to debut to help the midfield after Huijsen bolstered the rearguard Sunday. The 18-year-old has made six appearances with the Next Gen Squad so far this season, scoring and assisting once.

Allegri had brief remarks about the midfielder in the pre-game presser.

“He’s very good.”

Primavera coach Paolo Montero, who managed the prodigy in the recent past, dared to make an important comparison.

“He can become like Edgar Davids in the future. I showed him his clips.”
