Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo hailed Adrien Rabiot as “a complete player”.
According to Pirlo, he “rarely saw someone so physically and technically strong”.
Rabiot made his seventh Serie A appearance of the season as Juve beat Cagliari 2-0 on Saturday.
The result saw the Serie A champions move up to second in the table with 16 points, one behind current leaders Milan having played one more game.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice in four minutes, but Rabiot was the architect of most of their best moments in the final third before being replaced by Weston McKennie.
“He’s a complete player, I’ve rarely seen someone so physically and technically strong,” Pirlo told Sky Sports of Rabiot after the game.
“He doesn’t even know the potential for improvement he may have, and we’re working on the mental side of things to make him realize he’s a champion. He is improving game after game. “
