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.
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.”
“[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.”
