Llorente a worry for Del Bosque

Spain boss Vicente Del Bosque is concerned about Fernando Llorente’s situation with Italian giants Juventus.

The forward moved to the Old Lady in the summer on a Bosman after his contract with Athletic Bilbao had expired.

However, he has so far failed to establish himself in the first team plans of Coach Antonio Conte.

“I worry about all those who do not play regularly,” he told reporters at an event in Las Palmas when asked about the centre-forward.

“We are experiencing a phenomenon where a lot of our players are moving abroad,” continued the 62-year-old.

“It is not harmful, it enriches us, but there are players in great teams that face a lot of competition for places.”

Llorente has scored once in four Serie A games. He has been used for a total of 173 minutes in the Italian top flight and just 26 minutes in the Champions League.
