ROME – “Tomorrow will be a beautiful evening, an Italian derby. We play against a difficult team to face, against whom we have always done well in previous matches. It will take lucidity”. They are the words of Massimiliano Allegri in Press conference on the eve of Coppa Italia final between Juve and Inter. “And then football is weird – goes on -: after two minutes maybe it will unlock and change the match, the important thing is to have the lucidity to play a good match”. Then onto the can training: “I have some doubts. Morata plays? Tomorrow morning or tomorrow afternoon I have to tell him, otherwise we wonder who’s playing. Chiellini plays safe, Perin the same. Let’s see for the others. Three way defense? We see. The players I’ll line up can play in threes or fours even during the match.”
“We have to work and improve for next season”
Then onto the can victory of the Italian Cup to redeem the season: “Yes, we got off to a bad start, but we made a come-up and achieved an important result. Playing in the Champions League is an important result, one that Juve has always achieved. At the end of the season, we’ll get there to try to improve and try to restart, certainly more have an advantage over this year. The assessment is simple: if we win, say it’s good, if we lose, say it’s a disastrous season. These are assessments that we don’t have to make. Winning would be wonderful, but the path to starting again next year, in the starting blocks, trying to go and win and be competitive, that’s something we have to do.” Allegri then continued to talk about the season Replying to reporters: “Our best games were against Inter and Manchester United, but you only remember the result, not the performances. At the start of the season, the loss of Ronaldo three days before the end of the market it was not a simple thing. We also had some situations along the way, where for example we lost Church. They’re all called up tomorrow, by the way. We had some difficulties, certainly the fact of pushing a lot on the accelerator. I was calm in the fact that, after the Champions League round, the team would begin to grow and so it was. The club then gave us a big hand in January, signing Vlahovic. And from there we started an important run-up, which ended with the defeat against Inter, a match that gives us further impetus. Now we have the Coppa Italia: bringing it home would be nice, then we’ll have the last two games and we’ll have to try to finish the season in the best possible way to be able to plan the next one right away.”
“Dybala is playing. Vlahovic? He’s doing well, he’s from Juve”
Allegri then responded ironically to reporters on Dybala: “Tomorrow he plays. So I’ll give you the big title”. Then on the best Italian coaches: “For me they are the ones who win: Ancelottito whom I renew the accomplishments, Hair, Lippi, Bags And Trapattoni they made the history of Italian football. Carlo is the only one who still coaches and two years ago he was considered finished, but that’s not the case. In Italy there are many good, young coaches who may have the opportunity to coach a great team. There are many coaches who coach in Serie D or in Eccellenza who are very well prepared but being a coach is much more, it is much bigger stuff, which is not written in any book. It’s like mother nature made you: if you have it, you have it, but this is true in football as in any profession.” On Vlakhoviccommenting on the words of Stojkovic according to which tomorrow evening will score: “I hope he does two, not one. He’s doing well, he’s serene but sometimes he asks too much of himself. It’s a question of character. He’s shown he’s a player at Juventus, then he’s been here for three months and the year The next player can only improve.The numbers are good in terms of goals, then it’s difficult in Italy to score one goal per game Cristiano Ronaldo when he arrived he went five-six games without a goal. I’m happy, then if he had an angry face that’s fine. But he means that he cares a lot, that he wants to improve and he shows it every day.” Finally on summoned from U23: “I brought Miretti and also Nicolussi. He’s a guy who had a cruciate injury. I saw the Under 23 the other day, he amused me so much and I brought him as a reward “.
