Hellas Verona coach Juric ponders unleashing Kalinic against Juventus

Hellas Verona coach Ivan Juric says they face Juventus in good shape.

Verona have started with seven points in four games but haven't won since Serie A Week 2 against Udinese.

“The team are fine, we arrive motivated," Juric said at a press conference.

“We get Barak back, who has recovered from COVID and tomorrow we will evaluate his condition."

On star signing Nikola Kalinic, he added: “He's working, trying hard and trying to get into shape. For attackers like him, who live off explosiveness, it takes some time," the coach added.

“Then, let's see if he can claim a place, which is not given away. My idea is to insert him gradually.

“Matches against Juventus are always special and fascinating. We are going to play our game; we are under construction and we need time to regroup."
