Allegri preferred Barrenechea to Paredes for Derby

Everyone in the Bianconeri household was happy with the Derby victory, except for Paredes. The Argentine remained to watch his teammates win the challenge with Torino. Coach Allegri preferred him to the young Barrenechea.

“Barrenechea like Iling, Soulè, Fagioli and Miretti are players who come from Next Gen and are to be considered first-team players,” the post-match words of Allegri who, on Paredes, was lapidary: “I am sorry for Paredes who did not play but I have to make choices. Everyone who is called upon must be ready. In soccer there is the green rectangle and it gives the grades.” With the return of Pogba and the many youngsters on the roster, it will be difficult for World Champion Paredes to find space.
