Juventus star Blaise Matuidi had a moment to forget during the ‘Old Lady’s’ pre-season friendly with Inter Milan earlier today, the ace shocked fans with this…
Juventus fans couldn’t believe what they were seeing after this pass from Blaise Matuidi, the Frenchman produced this embarrassing moment in the Serie A champions’ International Champions Cup tie with domestic rivals Inter Milan.
It’s clear that Maurizio Sarri is attempting to integrate his ‘Sarri-ball’ into the Italian giants’ playing style, but Matuidi doesn’t look as though he’s comfortable in playing out of the back.
Check out the World Cup winner’s bizarre wayward pass below:

Here’s some reaction to the Frenchman’s wayward pass:
Matuidi misplacing a 1 mater pass & winning it back in 5seconds…that’s Blaise

Matuidi can’t pass, but he can win the ball back. He’s a semi-liability.

Matuidi is no use in Sari's ball, too much on the defensive side. not much on the quick pass attacking the way sarri's usually want.

Matuidi’s time with Juventus could be coming to an end, the former Paris Saint-Germain star has to contend with summer signings Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot for a spot in Sarri’s midfield – the Frenchman’s first attempts at playing Sarri-Ball certainly aren’t encouraging.
The 33-year-old will find it hard to contend with natural ball-players in Rabiot and Ramsey next season.
