Weston McKennie excels at wing back in Tim Weah’s absence

Weston McKennie got the nod at right wing back on Sunday for Juventus and excelled in the absence of his fellow international and club teammate.

McKennie delivered a strong shift in Juventus’ 1-0 road victory over Fiorentina, starting in the place of Timothy Weah. The 25-year-old had previously featured as a wing back in Massimiliano Allegri’s squad earlier this season and returned there for the trip to Florence.

Weah remains sidelined due to a thigh injury he suffered in a 1-0 win over Hellas Verona on Oct. 28.

Fabio Miretti’s 10th minute goal was all the Old Lady needed to claim three points, moving Juventus into second place in the Serie A table.

McKennie was impressive all over the field, winning eight of his 15 duels, making three interceptions, and eight clearances. He also created a key goalscoring chance in second-half stoppage time as the Old Lady tried to capture an insurance goal.

Juventus has now won four-consecutive matches and are unbeaten in its last six overall in Serie A play.

A home clash with Cagliari is next for the Old Lady on Nov. 11 before the FIFA international break. McKennie will aim to stay injury-free with crucial U.S. men’s national team duty coming against Trinidad & Tobago later this month.
