Ex AC Milan superstriker and former Dutch national team coach Marco van Basten expressed his opinion on his co-patriot Eljero Elia joing Juventus Turin.

Van Basten told La Repubblica: "Elia is a fast player and very good at dribbling. He is great in one-on-one situations and he usually beats his markers. Elia can make a difference, but he must be given the freedom to invent the play."

The 24-year-old Dutch winger joined Juventus on transfer deadline day in a €9.0 million move, signing a four-year deal with the Turin club.
