Compared to many other big teams in Europe, Juventus entered the Summer Tour to prepare for the 2019/20 season quite late. This evening (July 21), the Serie A champions will compete against the Champions League runner-up – Tottenham in the remarkable match at the International Champions Cup (ICC) on the Singapore National Stadium.
Juve is in the process of “changing blood” strongly when next to the appearance of new coach Maurizio Sarri, “Bianconeri” has welcomed many of this summer’s rookies like Aaron Ramsey, Luca Pellegrini, Adrien Rabiot, the return of Gianluigi Buffon, Gonzalo Higuain or especially the appearance of blockbuster Matthijs de Ligt.
To get the 19-year-old captain of Ajax Amsterdam, Juve had to spend up to 75 million euros to welcome him to land the Allianz yard before the look of both Barcelona, MU and PSG. Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper, Coach Sarri shared that it is possible for all three students, De Ligt, Ronaldo and Higuain, to play at Tottenham Stadium today.
“De Ligt will have minutes to show me. Higuain will have to wait for the final decision. And Ronaldo will play on the left. De Ligt (newly arrived) will still be part of this match even though he did not train with us because he needs more minutes to play with new teammates.”
Tottenham decided to stand up after the pain
Meanwhile, Tottenham also want to find joy before the new season after being defeated by Liverpool with the same score in the final of the English Champions League on June 1.
This summer, “Rooster” caught attention in the transfer market when it spent 62 million euros plus 10 million euros extra to get central midfielder Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon. However, Mauricio Pochettino’s army has just sold Kieran Trippier – his outstanding right-back for Atletico Madrid and made many of their fans unsafe.
