Former Italy international Antonio Cassano describes Juventus as ‘a mess’ and points at the lack of champions in the side. ‘Luckily they won against Spezia’.
Allegri came back to steer the Juventus towards the top after finishing fourth in Serie A 2020-21 under Andrea Pirlo, but Cassano believes the coach seems ‘confused’ after returning to the Allianz Stadium.
The former Bari, Roma, Real Madrid, Sampdoria, Milan, Inter and Parma striker spoke about the Bianconeri’s start on BoboTV and stressed the Old Lady lacks champions to save them during the difficult moments.
“Juventus played an obscene match,” Cassano told BoboTV. “Spezia put Juventus under pressure, if they had made it 3-1, it would have ended the game and they’re a team worth 50 times less compared to Allegri’s men.
“They scored the goals because of two or three players that Allegri doesn’t see but continues to struggle, he gives me the impression of being in confusion.
“I don’t understand how Juve play, it worries me a lot. They won, but will struggle to finish among the top four if they continue like this.
“They are the best equipped team and today they are 10 points behind, they play badly, they are passive, they suffer a lot despite always being behind the ball.
“There are no ideas, they lack personality. Before there were the champions who won games with one play: [Cristiano] Ronaldo scored 100 goals in three years, [Gonzalo] Higuain scored a lot, [Paulo] Dybala did great things.
“Now, they are a confused team, a mess, and luckily they won against Spezia.”
