Allegri not concerned about Juventus investigation

Massimiliano Allegri insists he and Juventus players are not concerned by the ongoing investigation for false accounting involving the Bianconeri: ‘They club is giving us tranquillity.’

Several current and former Juventus directors are under investigation for false accounting and the Guardia Di Finanza – Italy’s Financial Police – has searched the club’s headquarters twice in a week.

President Andrea Agnelli and vice-president Pavel Nedved are among those under investigation and the same is true of Fabio Paratici, now at Tottenham.

“There is serenity, now we have to win games. I have nothing to say about the rest [the investigation], the club has already spoken and there are professionals who are working on the matter,” Allegri said at a press conference ahead of tomorrow’s Juventus-Genoa.

“The club is giving us tranquillity,” the coach added.

Investigators are also looking into Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer from Juventus to Manchester United in the summer. The Portuguese striker is not under investigation.

Juventus have already lost three home games this season and sit seven points behind fourth-placed Atalanta.

“We need to win at home again. We’ve already lost three games, including the last one with Atalanta,” said Allegri.

“Genoa have three defeats and a draw in the last four games. Shevchenko is a good coach, even if he is very young.”

Aaron Ramsey, Mattia De Sciglio and Weston McKennie are injured and Allegri revealed three players who will surely start against the Grifone tomorrow.

“[Luca] Pellegrini should play, same as [Dejan] Kulusevski and [Manuel] Locatelli. I’ll decide the others tomorrow morning,” he claimed.

“We played a good game in Salerno, somebody needs to rest, then we’ll have another [Champions League] game on Wednesday, so those who played more games should rest.

“I haven’t decided on the other two midfielders. Arthur is a professional and a great footballer. He’s always played well.

“Ramsey is still on the sidelines, not available. De Sciglio and McKennie should return next week.”

  1. zittadella>> agreed 100%. How is Ramsey ALWAYS injured, and then when a Wale game comes along he is suddenly able to play?
    He has played more minutes for Wales than for Juventus. It is insane
    Seriously, he doesn’t deserve to be paid!
