Max Allegri Praises Tim Weah’s Progress at Juventus

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has delivered a promising update on the club’s only summer signing, Timothy Weah. Following a decent start to life in Serie A, the United States international has tumbled down the pecking order in recent matches.

Weah’s international colleague Weston McKennie has taken his place in the starting lineup. However, Allegri confirms the ex-Lille winger ‘is making progress,’ suggesting he could be on his way to gaining a more prominent role at Juventus in the upcoming matches. 

He is growing. He had a moment of downturn, but now he is finding balance. It was normal that he found some difficulties, but now he is very well,” the Juventus boss said, as quoted by Tuttomercatoweb

Juventus signed Weah for the initial €10.3 million plus add-ons, hoping he could replace Juan Cuadrado in the right wing-back position. The 23-year-old enjoyed an inspiring pre-season campaign, earning Allegri’s trust in the early stages of 2023/24.

But after making the starting XI in the first two Serie A rounds, Weah has only started once in the last seven matches. His return to the team before the international break coincided with a 2-0 win over Torino. Before that, the USMNT star only managed 65 minutes of top-flight football across six games. 

It’s uncertain whether he’ll start for Juventus tonight. Allegri’s men take on Milan in a mammoth Serie A contest at the San Siro, looking to build on a three-match unbeaten streak.
