Moise Kean has spoken highly about the people involved in his football career as well as his life off the pitch, reserving special praise for Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri.
The 23-year-old was given his senior debut for the Bianconeri during Allegri’s first spell in charge of the Italian giants, and the striker considers him to be a great mentor, not just a coach.
“We have a very good relationship,” Kean said on DAZN program Heroes, via La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“He made me understand when I was doing bad things and when I was doing good things. He has been a sporting father, sometimes we still quarrel but in the end we love each other even if we don’t tell each other.
“I left Asti and a life on the streets, doing freestyle and playing football in the oratory with older boys. When I made my debut in the first team, at 16, I said to myself, ‘OK, I’m out of the s**t’.”
Kean is recording music with McKennie and Leao
A hobby of Kean’s outside of football is recording music, and he is currently collaborating with Juventus teammate Weston McKennie and AC Milan winger Rafael Leao on a song.
“I like making music, it calms me,” he said. “McKennie and Rafa Leao are often at my house, we write and sing. We have a song together that is yet to be released, we are working on it.”
Kean rates Miretti and Fagioli, but disapproves of the music tastes of Nicolussi Caviglia
When he was demoted from the senior squad, Kean got to know some of the Juventus Next Gen kids such Fabio Miretti, Nicolo Fagioli, and Hans Nicolussi Cavaglia.
The striker spoke highly of the footballing abilities of Miretti and Fagioli, and he considers Nicolussi Caviglia to be a true friend despite not sharing the same music tastes.
“I met Miretti once when I was in detention and then they sent me with the players born in 2003,” he said.
“I immediately thought he was strong. Everyone was talking about Fagioli, he was very strong, he showed it and will show it again. But the one who knows me best is Nicolussi Caviglia.
“He explains the exercises to me, he stops me when I am about to do or say something stupid. He listens to the worst music inside the locker room, but he has a very open mentality, sometimes he even listens to Mozart.”
Kean has featured 12 times for Juventus in Serie A this season, primarily from the bench. He is yet to find the back of the net, though.
