Juventus: Fans demand Merih Demiral gets chance with Matthijs de Ligt doubtful for AC Milan clash

Many Juventus fans are calling for Merih Demiral after claims that Matthijs de Ligt will not be available for their match on the weekend against AC Milan.

Fan account @ForzaJuve2017 claimed that Sky are suggesting that he will not recover from his injury in time to play on the weekend.

In response to the tweet, there has been an overwhelming amount of fans suggesting that Turkish defender Merih Demiral needs to play, rather than Daniele Rugani.

So far this season, Demiral as made just one appearance in the league, playing the full match as his side beat Verona 2-1 on September 21. He didn’t have the best of games, with WhoScored giving him just a 5.81/10 rating.

De Ligt, on the other hand, has played much more this season – though that perhaps shouldn’t come as so much of a surprise considering his transfer fee of £67.5m. From his eight appearances, he has managed to get an average rating of 6.67/10, per WhoScored.

Despite Demiral not having the best of times in his first game, fans are still demanding he gets a chance this weekend if De Ligt cannot pull through.

Here are some of the replies from fans below…
