JUVENTUS ALLEGRI – Juventus had a very intense finish on the eve of the match against Monza, a match that will score a lot for the Bianconera standings.
Juventus, Allegri: “Our team has limits”
Interviewed by Mario Sconcerti at Corriere della Sera, Massimiliano Allegri spoke about the difficult moment at Juventus. Here is the full interview of the Bianconero coach:
“Mistakes are in many parts of the field. We miss passes, we make too many technical mistakes, we don’t fight, we lose physical control of the opponents. I am very sorry for this situation and I often wonder if I have made any mistakes. The first answer that comes to mind is that Juve had been thought of in another way “.
On injuries and bad luck:
“We have problems with thrust on the side panels. I can no longer ask players who have been running all their lives to keep making the whole band. Something is missing. We stop early. This is my job, we are working on it every day. However, many errors are technical. But I repeat, this is now a virtual Juventus. I am happy with the market project, I liked it. But there are no players on the pitch. Try to remove five starters from Inter Milan, then let’s see if they go into difficulty “.
On the market:
“We will be able to count on Chiesa and Pogba in January, then we’ll see what we can ask them immediately. They are not bicycles. How long will it take to get back to their height? There are objective difficulties, I know them, I have not trained for a day and I have always made a few mistakes. But I repeat, this is now a virtual Juventus. I am happy with the market project, I liked it. But there are no players on the pitch. Try to take away five starters from Inter or Milan ”.
About the game:
“I saw with interest on Sky Carlo Ancelotti’s interview with Paolo Condò. He said that after losing the first two games, he asked the team to drop down twenty meters and wait for Shakhtar. Real, do you understand? They won 5-0. PSG lost 1-0 in Israel, then Messi, Mbappè and Neymar scored, not three anyone. The quality is always in the players, not in the schemes. A good coach must first of all think about the players. I now have half of the starting team out. Half team right. After Benfica I stopped to talk to Rui Costa, I would never stop. He told me that today football is overturned, if a player makes a good pass he is already a phenomenon. If he throws forty meters, double phenomenon. Me in football it must be normal to pass the ball well, to know how to throw it. Today the rule is exchanged for the exception. It can’t be like that. I love the quality of my players, I looked for them and wanted them. I have no set patterns, I adapt the game to their qualities. I am not a phenomenon for this, it is a profession. The player is made up of details that must always be considered. For example, there is no way to stop the ball. There are two. If you stop it backwards it is a defensive stop, if you know how to do it forward, it begins an attack action. This is real football, applied. Like the passes: it is not enough to give the ball to a teammate in the area, you have to give it to him with counted laps otherwise he does not shoot at the goal, he must first turn around. Today the players don’t think, they obey. They don’t interpret. This is the easiest solution. While football is a sum of individual fantasies. With Benfica Di Maria entered a few minutes and put one in front of the goalkeeper from thirty meters. Can I say it was a pattern? No, it was Di Maria. I have these players, if we are all, we are strong. Today I don’t even know which team we will go to Monza with, a game only to be won. But I have two more bruised and I have no more replacements. I look forward to the belay, after I will be able to recover at least three players ”.
