Juventus management excited by prospect Schiavone

Juventus youth coaches believe they have a world-beater on their hands in Andrea Schiavone.

Just 14, Schiavone made his debut with Juve's allievi team last week - creating two goals - and junior coach Domenico Maggiora said: "He has a very strong personality and could also play for the Primavera, although in that case the physical side of things could make a difference.

"He is very good in the air and has a great shot with the right foot."

Maggiora believes Schiavone has similar attributes to Roma star Daniele de Rossi, while his allievi coach Massimiliano Maddaloni says the youngster reminds him of AC Milan ace Andrea Pirlo.
