Del Neri was asked if Pastore could fit in his Juve side.
"Sure, as a second striker," he told Tuttosport. "He is a phenomenal player when it comes to freeing himself in between the lines. It's something instinctive that no one has taught him.
"In some ways he is similar to Cristiano Doni. I could use him like I used Doni at Atalanta in a 4-4-1-1 or, better, in a lovely 4-2-4 with two real wingers."
