Agent of Pietro Pellegri explains Monaco move ahead of Juventus

The agent of Pietro Pellegri has explained his move to AS Monaco.

The former Genoa striker joined Monaco last month.

“He is a young player and the club has invested in his future as well as the present," agent Beppe Riso told Footmercato.

“Despite all of this, he feels no pressure. Monaco can wait six months, a year, the important thing is that he progresses. Pietro has the mentality of a winner. He wants to work ceaselessly in order to improve and grow."

Juventus had a deal with Genoa, but Pellegri then opted for Monaco instead.

“We thought this was the best option for the player's progress. Monaco are specialists at getting the best out of young players and that is the main reason why we chose them. It's a well-organised club with a great Coach like Leonardo Jardim. Pietro can certainly grow with his guidance.

“We didn't say no to other interested clubs, rather we simply said yes to Monaco for various reasons. There's more room for young players here and that allows talents to express themselves more freely.

Monaco were clear on their working method with Pietro and the Coach knows how to help make champions."
