Allegri: 'Szczesny needs surgery'

Max Allegri unveiled his new look, confirmed Wojciech Szczesny requires knee surgery and Cristiano Ronaldo won’t feature against Sampdoria tomorrow.

It kicks off on Sunday at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT), click here for a match preview.

The Coach held his final Press conference in Turin with a very relaxed attitude, no longer having to answer questions on his future.

There will be many changes against Samp and he confirmed the starting XI, see below, while giving injury updates.

“Szczesny has a knee problem and will have keyhole surgery over the next few weeks, but he is available for tomorrow. Cristiano Ronaldo is not making the trip, as he needs to rest and has international duty coming up with Portugal. It’s right for others to play now.

“Miralem Pjanic is coming, Blaise Matuidi and Federico Bernardeschi are suspended, Mario Mandzukic wanted to make himself more handsome and got a new nose (after surgery for a fracture), Alex Sandro had a muscular issue. You’ll see Douglas Costa next year.

“If Leonardo Spinazzola recovers, then he’ll start, otherwise it’s Pereira.

“We have to end the season on a high against a great team. Marco Giampaolo confirmed the good work he did last season and his Sampdoria deserve respect.”

Allegri concluded by referencing his new extremely short haircut.

“After that, we can all go to the beach, I’ve been told to put sun cream on my head. Now let’s go for a drink.”

Juventus: Pinsoglio; Caceres, Rugani, Chiellini, De Sciglio; Cuadrado, Emre Can, Bentancur, Pereira; Dybala, Kean
