His brother defends him (“Many offenses, but he’s more decisive than Vlahovic”), but Juve doesn’t intend to give discounts. On the contrary…
Moise Kean did it again. The flash expulsion of the Olimpico, 40 seconds after entering the field in the stoppage time of Roma-Juve for the reaction on Gianluca Mancini, adds to the delay at the start of the season which had cost the former PSG the friendly against Athletic. If the timing for the return to the field will be established by the sports judge (at least 2 days, like Di Maria for the reaction foul in Monza-Juve), at Continassa they are quantifying the amount of the economic punishment. Because this time, as anticipated by Massimiliano Allegri, “Moise made a mistake and apologized. But with the expulsion he has put the team in difficulty and will suffer a large fine ”.
The ingenuity was heavy and in the end it could cost from a figure of around 20-25 thousand euros (5% of the gross monthly salary) to a much higher one in the event that the Continassa decides to really use a heavy hand as implied by the technician. The decision will be made quickly. Meanwhile, the criticisms arrived on social networks and the defense of Moise’s brother, Giovanni, was immediate, with a story on Instagram: “You must be ashamed, not him. He is a boy who is always booed and has done practically the same number of goals from your favorites. He is insulted for everything he does and even what he doesn’t do. Although he has been more decisive than Dusan in the last few games, he is sent onto the field one minute from the end. You wonder why there are no Italian players, you massacre them every game.” One thing is certain: both Allegri and the manager of the sports area Francesco Calvo and above all the sports director Federico Cherubini would have gladly done without this case. Yes, because Kean’s “behavioral relapse” comes after months in which the coach from Livorno, who was often harsh with him in the past, had publicly praised him for his attitudes rather than for his goals (7 in 20 appearances): “Now it’s difficult leave Kean out – said Allegri -. He has lost weight, grown mentally and matured. He has become an important player ”. Punishing Kean, even though he has already been through it in recent years and has known him best since his youth days, will be even more difficult for Cherubini, the main sponsor of Moise’s return to Juve. In the last days of August 2021, the manager, caught off guard by the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United, occupied the box vacated by the five-time Ballon d’Or investing more than 30 million between loan, redemption and bonus to bring “home” ” Kean, back from the 2019 sale to Everton and the excellent 2020-21 loan to PSG (17 goals).
It’s no mystery that Juve weren’t happy with Kean’s first season (6 goals in all) and that if it hadn’t been for the contractual situation (two-year loan with redemption obligation from Everton) they probably would have greeted him again in summer. Encouraging signs, however, have arrived this year. If they are enough for confirmation, net of the episode in Rome, it will be understood in the coming months. It will depend on Juve, with or without Cups, and on any clubs ready to offer a sum similar to that invested by Cherubini in 2021.
