The rehearsal for Juric’s Bull never ends. Tomorrow night at the San Siro against Milan is another important test to understand the strength of a group still chasing its size. The grenades are looking for continuity, but to do so they will have to overcome the challenge against another big player, probably the most fit at the moment. «Pioli’s team is super complete and can score goals in a thousand different ways – Juric warns -, has fast and dangerous players and is very formidable on set pieces. We will have to face it with the same desire we played against Napoli and Juventus, this time trying to get a result ».
The truth is that Juric’s team is still a great construction site, either for a transfer market that has completed the squad only at the end, or for the many injuries that have characterized this start of the season. Meanwhile, Toro also lost Ansaldi for a month. The in-depth examinations confirmed the first impressions of the muscle problem that the player suffered against Genoa: first degree injury to his right thigh. «We have to improve on the fluidity of the game and grow technically – repeats the coach -, it’s also a matter of time: in Verona I had players who took even a year and a half to do it. If anything, my doubt is that here there are elements that cannot grow that much. “
This does not include Lukic, one of the surprises of the Croatian Toro. «He has the right skills, he is coming out, but in the past he was very inconsistent because he has held so many roles – says Juric -, his position is in the middle of the field and I want him to play there. I have never found a player suffering from my requests, indeed at Toro they all want to learn ».
The coach consoles himself with the conditions of Belotti and Praet: the two grow up and will soon be the added value of the team. «I will decide at the last minute if the Belgian will be able to start as a starter – he warns – and as regards the duality Belotti / Sanabria all the teams have two strong forwards. Ours are different from each other, but playing with one or the other I don’t think changes much. Il Gallo away in the middle of the season? No, he will stay until the end of the season and only then will he decide what to do. The situation of his renewal is firm and there will be no other relaunches ». In January, according to Juric, the focus of the Taurus will have to be on the incoming players. “In the summer we moved with little courage – the coach’s truth – but soon it will have to be different, for us the winter sales can be a great opportunity”.
Meanwhile, Toro begins to enjoy some August choices such as Brekalo and Pobega, both of whom have reached 2 in personal scoring. «The former Milan player will grow a lot, I see that he learns quickly – the caress of Juric -, but he still has to improve on a technical level. And for Brekalo we are happy, he is doing well, but so far he has not split the world: he too can improve a lot ».
