Moise Kean’s father has announced that he is owned “two tractors” by Juventus and added they don’t even give him tickets for matches.

Kean first made a name for himself while progressing through the youth ranks at Juventus. In fact, the Bianconeri were so impressed they handed Kean his professional debut in 2016 in a 3-0 Serie A win over Pescara.

The 19-year-old later went on to become the first player born in the 2000s to feature in a Champions League match.

After spending last season on loan at the relegated Verona, Kean has enjoyed the benefit of training alongside Cristiano Ronaldo on a daily basis.

While regular opportunities have been hard to come by at Turin this term, Kean has still impressed when called upon and recently bagged a brace against Udinese.

And the young forward’s profile has only grown over the past week upon scoring in both of Italy’s Euro 2020 qualifiers.

But Kean’s father, Biorou Jean, revealed he is still yet to receive his two tractors as part of the deal for his son signing for Juventus.

Kean started out at Asti and then Juventus’ city rivals Torino before Biorou Jean managed to get Kean to join the Old Lady instead of moving to England with his mother.

“Moise’s mum and myself are separated and she, in the past, had wanted Moise to move to England,” Biorou Jean told RAI Radio.

“I told [Juve] that I would keep him in Italy, but in return I wanted two tractors.

“The club told me there wouldn’t be any problem, but they have still not given them to me and they don’t even give me tickets anymore. But I want him to stay at Juve forever. Juventus are in my blood. I sent him to Juventus because I’m a Bianconeri fan.”

He added: “My son was an Inter fan — he loved Obafemi Martins.”
