Weston McKennie is one of the best American players today and after not getting many minutes at Juventus, the American winger will leave for Leeds United in the Premier League.
The news was confirmed by Massimiliano Allegri, coach of Juventus, during the press conference this Saturday. The Italian coach revealed that McKennie will not play against Monza in the game this Sunday, January 29, in Serie A.
“It won’t be tomorrow. I think the clubs have already reached an agreement, so tomorrow it’s useless to make him play.” indicated the Italian coach about McKennie.
The American winger has played 15 games this season with 1 goal and 1 assist. In the Champions League toHe scored two goals in 5 games.
Now, the American will come to a club that is fighting in the last places of the Premier League table to maintain permanence in the first division of England.
Leeds United is in 15th place in the table with 18 units in 19 days. The team has three draws and two defeats in the last 5 games. They are barely 3 points above the bottom of the table and only one unit from the top spot to drop to the Second Division of England.
McKennie had a good performance in Qatar 2022, but at Juventus he was never able to explode as the bianconeri team wanted. He will now possibly have to start and rescue Leeds United from relegation.
The North American leaves on loan to Leeds until the end of the season. The ‘whites’ will pay 1.5 million dollars for the loan and a purchase option of 35 million dollars will be saved.
