The Bianconeri had fought back from an early Nicolò Barella screamer with Alex Sandro and Dusan Vlahovic in the space of 120 seconds, but a contentious Hakan Calhanoglu penalty forced extra time, when Ivan Perisic’s brace proved crucial.
Just like the Supercoppa Italiana in January, Inter emerged victorious in extra time, but this also means Juventus end the season without any silverware at all for the first time since the Gigi Delneri era of 2010-11.
Allegri was furious throughout the match at the Stadio Olimpico, eventually sent off for going head-to-head with Simone Inzaghi’s assistant manager Massimiliano Farris.
“Someone from Inter walked past and kicked me. I got angry and quite rightly the referee sent me off,” he explained on Sport Mediaset.
“Finding out what happened changes nothing. We just have to congratulate Inter for winning. We do not win a single trophy this season, we have to retain that anger for next season, when we must get back to winning.
“It was a good performance, but we fell away towards the end, there were players who were not fully fit and did all they could. It’s disappointing, but we can only thank them for their efforts.”
Allegri had said in yesterday’s press conference that usually the Coppa Italia was the cherry on the cake, but this year represented the whole cake.
“We learn from these experiences. It’s a pity, because we didn’t get the win against Inter in Serie A and did not take our revenge this evening either. Incidents can go against you some days, in favour the others.”
Giorgio Chiellini said that over the course of the campaign, Inter proved they were stronger than Juventus in the head-to-head clashes.
“There’s no point talking about it now, I can only congratulate Inter, my lads and the referee for a good performance. We achieved something with a top four finish that seemed very difficult in January. Now the lads can rest over the summer, recharge and be ready to win next season.”
Oh my word, Juventus score twice in two minutes to turn the game around! 🔥🔥
