The Italian mentor’s confidence was defended by and by on Sunday evening, as McKennie delivered another midfield masterclass, causing Juventus simplicity to a 2-0 triumph over Bologna.
McKennie offered at any rate a 9/10 in each part of his game. His energy and development, changing from the privilege to the center of the pitch, continually looking vertically: he was the way in to each sure progress Juve made.
The American offered petite one-contact passes and flicks to put partners into action, bringing markers into his region and removing them from the game in a brief instant. Juve’s assaulting ease and speed on the counter-assault stemmed absolutely from McKennie’s resourcefulness, and the more he affected the game, the more players Bologna tossed toward him.
