Massimiliano Allegri reassured Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain after Juventus beat Udinese, but “we’ve achieved nothing yet.”
They temporarily went top of the table with a 2-0 victory over Udinese, awaiting tonight’s Inter-Napoli game, thanks to a Dybala brace.
“We haven’t achieved anything yet, as the season ends in May,” the Coach warned Mediaset Premium.
“On Wednesday, we got past Tottenham to reach the next Champions League round, we beat Udinese and can now focus on Atalanta.
“We suffered a little at the start today, but can only compliment the players for doing so well. Dybala is improving, the two goals against Lazio and Spurs gave him a boost mentally.
“Gonzalo Higuain is doing well too, even if he didn’t convert the penalty, as he provided the assist for Dybala’s second goal. On Wednesday there’s another crucial game that we have to win against Atalanta.”
Why does Higuain continue to take penalties if he has such a poor record from the spot?
“So far this season, Higuain and Dybala missed two each, so hopefully they won’t miss any more. I had told Paulo to take it today, but that’s fine.”
Allegri was asked about reports he is studying English to prepare for a job in the Premier League.
“No, I’m not even studying!”
