Juventus fullback De Sciglio: Rabiot judged more harshly than others

Juventus fullback Mattia De Sciglio has rejected criticism of teammate Adrien Rabiot.

De Sciglio says Rabiot is criticised more than other players.

He said, "Adrien hasn't shown his full potential. He has big qualities and he is forgiven very little compared to others. He is a reserved and quiet person, like me, but it hasn't been handy to me."

After his time with Lyon, De Sciglio was asked if more young Italians should move abroad.

“It's a shame that they don't try. Many have fears about leaving the country, but it is an enriching experience.

“Abroad, young players are more ready for important games. I saw that in France, where they have no fear to make mistakes. They are allowed to commit errors. A young Italian player is praised to the skies after a good performance and destroyed after a bad game.

“At Lyon, I rediscovered the pleasure to play. I compared the mentality and in Italy, there is a lot of pressure from media and fans. In France, they focus on one game at a time without exasperation. The approach to football is more serene."
