Juve’s Krasic criticised by Moggi

Former Juventus director general Luciano Moggi has blasted the ability of Milos Krasic. “He’s only got Pavel Nedved’s hair.”

The Serbian winger arrived in Turin in 2010 and his early form saw him compared to club legend Nedved.

However, Krasic has struggled in 2011 and he’s recently been dropped from the first team by boss Antonio Conte.

“People didn’t know what they were talking about when they said he was like Nedved,” Moggi told Radio Mana Mana.

“They just have the same hair…

“He’s a player who always makes the same decisions. He’s tactically broken and he can’t be relied on to support the side’s offensive manoeuvres.

“He doesn’t sync with the team’s movements, when he gets the ball he just keeps it and when he passes he often gets it wrong.

“His performances in Italy demonstrate as much, but it was clear from his displays in Russia that he was that kind of player.”

Krasic, signed for €15.5m from CSKA Moscow, has been linked with a possible January exit – even if current Juve dg Beppe Marotta today suggested he is going nowhere.

“If Krasic leaves Italy then nobody will start crying at Juventus,” added Moggi. “The balance sheet will though.

“The problem is that the player cost €15m and he’s not worth that. That was a mistake by the club which will damage them financially.”
