Allegri: ‘Khedira brings experience’

Max Allegri believes Sami Khedira has helped bring much-needed experience to a young Juventus side.

The Bianconeri finally got their first home win of the Serie A season in a 3-1 over Bologna, but were trailing for the fifth time in seven rounds.

“Alvaro Morata should’ve passed it to Juan Cuadrado in the opening minute, then we’d be 1-0 up. We conceded a goal with the defence in place, which shouldn’t happen,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“Alvaro Morata should’ve passed it to Juan Cuadrado in the opening minute, then we’d be 1-0 up. We conceded a goal with the defence in place, which shouldn’t happen,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“Having said that, we created a great deal and the thing we need to improve is our stability. We mustn’t keep giving off the sensation we’re struggling, as it’s important to play with a sense of authority.

“At the end of the day it was a good game and we deserved the three points. We were just lazy on the Bologna goal, though.”

Khedira has only two appearances in all competition for Juve, but they were both victories over Sevilla and Bologna.

“When someone has played three or four years at Real Madrid and is first choice for World Cup winners Germany, he brings experience and calm to the younger players.

“We are currently playing with a pared down attack. Our forwards are very talented, but also very young and don’t have that much experience.

“When Morata first arrived, he always aimed for goal and never passed it. After a while he’d only pass it and never shoot! He’s young and needed to learn when it was best to pass and best to go for goal.”

Paulo Dybala converted the penalty and Allegri revealed it was his call from the touchline.

“Dybala, Morata or Pogba were in line for the penalty and today I decided to give it to Dybala.”
