‘Giovinco plays or leaves Juve’

Sebastian Giovinco’s agent has warned his client could leave Juventus if he isn’t given a starting role with the champions.

Giovinco has made only one start so far in Serie A this term and speculation surrounds his future as he is approaching the final few months of his current contract.

“Either there is a viable plan for him, or he can leave,” the player’s agent Andrea D’Amico has now told Tiki Taka.

“Giovinco grew up with Juventus, then went out [to Empoli and Parma] and proved his worth.

“It makes me wonder why people are surprised when he plays well. Who would be interested [if her were to leave]? It’s obvious, everyone would be.”

D’Amico also urged Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri to switch to a 4-3-3 formation to accommodate his client.

“The truth is that Seba, at 27, has reached peak technical and mental condition, and he’s ready to play as a starter for Juve, especially if Allegri changes formation, and abandons Conte’s 3-5-2 in favour of a three-pronged attack.

“Tevez can’t be dropped, that would be unthinkable, and it would be unthinkable to have just an attack of ‘little guys’ [Tevez and Giovinco].

“So we need to think about an attacking trident. Giovinco alongside the Argentine and a choice between Llorente and Morata.

“Giovinco now needs to feel confidence in him. Not just from his Coach or his teammates, but especially from a club which has never been able to appreciate his talent.”
