Marcello Lippi believes Juventus’ “struggles” are due to not replacing their former holy trinity of midfielders Andrea Pirlo, Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba.

Pirlo, Vidal and Pogba helped Juve dominate Italy between 2012 and 2015 and reached the Champions League final last year, but the Bianconeri have since lost the trio and not been quite as forceful, with Miralem Pjanic yet to hit top gear and Lippi portraying Mario Lemina and Stefano Sturaro in a negative light.
