Juventus coach Allegri insists no problems with Higuain

Juventus coach Max Allegri insists the management of Gonzalo Higuain is not a problem.

The striker was dropped for the win over Torino and could again be on the bench for the Champions League clash with Olympiakos.

“I haven't yet decided which four players to use upfront. Higuain is not a problem. It'd be a problem if he didn't play for Juventus," said Allegri.

“We play – fortunately – every three days, so squad rotation is natural and someone will always miss out. Gonzalo just has to do what he always does – no more and no less.

“It's very simple at right-back, either Andrea Barzagli plays in the centre and Stefano Sturaro at right-back or Barzagli at right-back and Medhi Benatia in the middle."
