Tim Weah admits that “patience is the key” for him at Juventus, with the USMNT star having to adapt his game to play a new position.

Tim Weah Addresses Positional Growth At Juventus

However, the United States international moved to Turin in the summer of 2023 with his reputation having been forged as a tricky winger.


He is still operating as a forward for his country but is often takes up a more defensive role at club level.

That was the case once again when lining up against fellow countryman, Christian Pulisic, and Yunus Musah in Juve’s crunch Serie A clash with AC Milan, as the versatile 23-year-old slotted in at right wing-back for Massimiliano Allegri.


Embracing A New Challenge

Tim Weah claims to be embracing a new challenge in Italy, telling reporters that “it was a really important match for us. We know how good Milan are, the match wasn’t easy.

“We did everything right. After the red card we had to turn the game around, we scored a goal.


“And I’m proud of [Manuel] Locatelli, he changed the game.

“However, patience is the key. They told me to be patient and always be ready.

“Playing at wing-back? I like it.

“I have to help the team, so I expand my knowledge of everything.


“Also, for the USA I play on the wing, but I like to learn new things.”

He had helped the Biaconeri to a 1-0 win over 10-man Milan – who saw Malik Thiaw sent off five minutes before half-time.
