Moise Kean completely different from Balotelli, says Giorgio Chiellini

Moise Kean is nothing like Mario Balotelli, according to Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini. Chiellini claimed that Everton forward Moise Kean was “completely different” to Mario Balotelli. Kean left the Serie A champions for Everton last year, with the Premier League side paying £25 million (€27.5 million) for the Italy forward.

The 20-year-old has scored just once in 26 appearances for the club before the season was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak and was dropped in November for a disciplinary breach. Kean was found guilty of breaking the lockdown rules. Chiellini recently criticized the former Inter and Manchester player but clarified the fact that Kean was nothing like Balotelli.

“Balotelli only has the shot. There are those who now compare him with Moise Kean, a boy who appears rebellious and unmanageable but is completely different from Mario. Of course, in the Juventus youth, he was punished many times but when he played in the first team he always showed himself very respectful towards the group.”

“Sometimes he does not hear the alarm and arrives ate but they are behaviors that can be changed without difficulty,” Chiellini wrote. Kean came through the youth system at Juventus and managed to score eight goals in 21 games before leaving for Everton. 

With the Premier League just a couple of weeks away from a return, it will be interesting to see how Ancelotti manages the 20-year-old and if he could have an impact on the goal drought Kean is going through.

The world has seen the potential of Kean when he started for Juventus and that’s the biggest reason he was brought by the Toffees considering him a long-time investment. However, it is still very unclear how the club reacts to his lockdown breach and only time will tell if he will be included in the squad for the game or dropped for a while.
