Juventus had reportedly decided not to continue their efforts to re-sign Miralem Pjanic from Barcelona. However, in the midst of the news circulating, Pjanic actually uploaded a photo with black and white nuances on his Instagram account on Tuesday (31/8/2021) early morning WIB. Pjanic also includes a piano key emoji which of course is white and black.
It is no secret that white and black are colors that are very synonymous with Juventus. The midfielder from Bosnia-Herzegovina had previously defended Juventus in the 2016-2020 period.
He then moved to Barcelona in the summer of 2020, and at the same time Arthur Melo joined Juventus. Pjanic has secured a four-year contract at Camp Nou in hopes of becoming Barca’s new midfield general.
However, his performance was far from impressive despite having been given 30 opportunities to appear in all competitions last season. On that occasion, Pjanic never recorded a single goal or assist for the Blaugrana.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Barcelona are open to letting Pjanic return to Juve on loan, and they will pay half of his salary. Furthermore, the Bianconeri have even discussed the possibility of bringing Pjanic back with the player’s agent over the past few days.
Juve was then reported to have made a decision not to submit a loan offer for Pjanic to Barca, as reported by Goal International, Monday (30/8/2021) night WIB. However, Pjanic’s most recent post on social media raises a new conundrum.
Juventus’ problems themselves are reportedly about finances, where they have to cut the player’s salary bill if they want to bring in new pillars again. In this case, the Serie A giants must find a new club for one of their players.
La Gazzetta dello Sport had reported that Weston McKennie’s name could potentially move to Tottenham Hotspur on loan. The transfer is believed to be possible with the presence of former Juventus Technical Director, Fabio Paratici, who now works at Tottenham.
McKennie’s move is believed to be the door for Pjanic to return to Juventus. Miralem Pjanic’s confession, gets cold treatment from Koeman
Miralem Pjanic feels disrespected by Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman. Miralem Pjanic left Barcelona and joined Turkish club Besiktas on loan.
The midfielder from Bosnia-Herzegovina failed to shine after being recruited by Barcelona from Juventus in the summer of 2020. Pjanic has only played 30 times in all competitions without ever scoring a goal or assisting. He is increasingly marginalized after not being included in Ronald Koeman’s plans this season.
Barcelona also opened the door wide for Pjanic to return to Juventus. However, the finalization of the transfer did not materialize so the player anchored to Besiktas.
Recently, Miralem Pjanic also opened his voice regarding his first season at Barcelona which did not go as expected. He felt disrespected by Ronald Koeman. “Yes, by the coach,” Miralem Pjanic told Marca when asked if he felt disrespected.
I’m a footballer who likes to play and that’s what makes me happy.” “I’ve always liked the way Barcelona play and watch their games. Their philosophy is clear and suits my game. While there, I saw all the players I dreamed of playing with.”
“It’s always been my goal to play for a club like Barcelona, but I didn’t expect the situation to be as complicated as that,” said Miralem Pjanic.
“I had a lot of expectations because I developed at my previous club, at Roma or Juventus. I was ready to start a new chapter after 9 years in Italy.
Miralem Pjanic revealed that communication between himself and Ronald Koeman was poor. In his statement, Pjanic explained he had never been told directly by Koeman what made him not a top choice.
“He wasn’t trying to explain anything to me or trying to find a solution. I asked him what he wanted from me or whether I was doing something well or not,” he said. “I want to adapt as quickly as possible to the team and be useful,” continued the midfielder. “He didn’t have a problem with my game and didn’t give me any answers either. I arrived two weeks late because of Covid-19. After arriving, I trained little by little to prepare myself.”
“A few days went by and the coach never came to talk about plans for the whole season, about me or to talk about anything.It killed my confidence because there was no communication with him. The coach is a personIt’s g that decides who plays or not, but there are different ways of saying it,” said Pjanic.
“I can accept everything, but I want to be told something directly. It’s not as if I was 15 years old,” said Miralem Pjanic.
He knew he had the ability to defend big teams like Barca, but he just wasn’t given the chance. “Never regret. Things happen in life and I’ve always struggled throughout my career,” he said. “I’m ambitious, competitive and I’ve reached the level of Barcelona and Juventus. I knew I could play for those teams, I just wasn’t given the chance,” said Miralem Pjanic.
