Allegri: ‘Talk about the Scudetto doesn’t make sense now’

by | Jan 22, 2022 11:22

Massimiliano Allegri doesn’t think Juventus should be thinking about the Scudetto ahead of tomorrow’s match against Milan.

The Bianconeri currently sit 5th in the Serie A table with 41 points, nine below league leaders Inter and seven behind the Rossoneri. They are in a period of decent form, having won four of their last five league outings.

Speaking to gathered reporters in a press conference, Allegri first discussed Juventus’ recent form.

“We are experiencing a good period, but the path is still long, we are still behind in the league table. It will be a great match, it’s a pity we have to play it with only 5,000 spectators, but it’s still Juventus-Milan.”

He touched on the condition of Federico Bernardeschi and the rest of the squad.

“We still have to train and I have to evaluate everything. Everyone is fine apart from Bonucci and Ramsey, who has been negative but is on his way out. After training I’ll know what formation to do.”

The Italian coach commented on the Bianconeri’s goals for this season and why it’s too early to talk about the league title.

“Let’s not go too far with things, in the meantime let’s try to get a good result tomorrow against Milan, who have been doing very well in the last year and a half. Congratulations to Pioli, they are fighting for the Scudetto.

“We have to stick with them and arrive at the end of February in the best possible condition. If we talked about the Scudetto we’d be talking about things that don’t make sense right now.”

Allegri did not think that tomorrow’s game was a question of winning against a top four team.

“It’s not a question of winning against one of the top four, it’s a question of winning because it’s an important game. Hopefully tomorrow will be the first time.”

He spoke highly of Argentinian forward Paulo Dybala, whose contract expires at the end of this season.

“Paulo is better physically, he is growing, he is very calm. This helps him because he’s freer to play, he has less responsibility, I’m very happy with what he’s doing. I think he will give us a lot between now and the end of the season.”

The Juventus coach was happy with the work of young talent Moise Kean.

“I am happy with what Moise is doing, he has scored important goals. He’s alternated between good performances and not so good ones, let’s not forget he’s a youngster that’s only 21 years old.”

He discussed the transfer market and Brazilian midfielder Arthur.

“This is the squad and it will stay like this. Let’s not forget that Arthur had been inactive for six months, he needed to find consistency. The player Arthur is not in question, he is a starter for Brazil even if he is not called up.”

Finally, Allegri touched on Milan’s system and growth, as well as the changing cycle at Juventus.

“They’ve worked well, they’ve done things in an orderly fashion. They chose good players and that’s how you win games. They have taken responsibility away from what they had on them, Milan’s load, and now they are up there.

“Juve came from nine unrepeatable years for a football club in Italy. They still won two trophies and went to the Champions League. This year, without Ronaldo, there was more space for others, and we played games, like in Rome, with 6 players between 20 and 23 years old.

“60% of a team, that’s not little. It’s not being better, it’s experience. You only get better by playing, by playing matches, and I’d say they’ve improved a lot in that respect. We played with maturity in the game against Udinese, we waited and took a step forward.”
