Not being picked as starter for Juventus’ first match, apparently still cast doubts over Milos Krasic’s at the Turin giant, especially since there were rumors circulating in the summer saying that the Bianconeri’s new coach, Antonio Conte wasn’t that keen on Krasic’s ability.
However that negative rumors was immediately squashed by the player’s agent, Marko Naletilic, who insisted that Juventus management have no issues with his client and isn’t planning to offload Krasic especially this season.
Moreover, Naletilic also revealed that Krasic is enjoying his time in Turin and obviously have no intention in leaving Juventus even if rumors are closely linking the Serbian international with a big club such as Manchester United. Naletilic also shared some light regarding Krasic’s bench status in the Bianconeri’s opening game, the agent stated that it mainly happened because the ex-CSKA Moskow player is not match fit yet but Krasic is said to be starting for next weekend match against Siena.
“These stories are absurd. I don’t understand from where these rumors can come from because they have no foundation. Milos is happy at Juventus and the club have no intention of selling him. He’s just getting ready as best he can for the Siena game seeing as he wasn’t in condition for the Parma tie because of injury,” Naletilic explained.
Krasic himself is considered as one of the fine performers for the Bianconeri last season despite their poor finish in Serie A and also Europa League, the winger started brightly in the competition but simply faded away in the second part of the season just as his fellow teammates. However, Conte’s arrival this season along with the addition of plenty new wide players simply making rumors spreading that the Serbian international could actually leave the club in the summer, but of course that didn’t happened since Krasic still stayed in Turin.
Should Krasic managed to consistently earned his spot under Conte’s regime, the rumors will eventually died out for the whole season, but should the opposite occurred, we could see more stories about the winger’s future when the transfer market re-opened in the winter. Considering Juventus didn’t really have many competition to play this season, the competition in getting the wide players spot will definitely be a challenge for Krasic especially with the likes of Simone Pepe, Eljero Elia, Emanuele Giacherinni and Marcelo Estigarribia competing for two spots only in each games.
