Juventus players distracted by Bonucci before Inter winner

by | Jan 12, 2022 22:56

Juventus staff were urging their players to give away a free kick so Leonardo Bonucci could come on for the penalty shoot-out, but were caught out by Inter’s Alexis Sanchez winner in the Supercoppa Italiana.

According to Sport Mediaset, who were covering the game at San Siro with their touchline reporters, Max Allegri and his assistants were shouting at players to ‘foul someone’ and give away a free kick at the 120th minute.

Supercoppa | Inter 2-1 Juventus aet: Alexis Sanchez last-gasp winner

This was so that play could be halted and Bonucci could be introduced as a substitute, purely so he could take a penalty in the shoot-out.

However, it never got that far, because Alexis Sanchez pounced on an Alex Sandro defensive error and scored the winner for Inter in the final seconds of the game.

If true, that would suggest the Juve defenders were distracted during those moments of the match and already had their minds on the shoot-out.

Weston McKennie had given Juve the lead with a header, cancelled out by the Lautaro Martinez penalty, forcing extra time at 1-1.

    Do defenders in the box hear shouts from the bench with all the noise from over 50,000 fans? Either way its not an excuse to chest the ball in the box.

  4. LORD ALLEGRI PATRON SAINT OF SLOW BALL

    Donkey Max is supposed to make the crucial calls and leaves it to the last seconds to bring on Bonucci lol.

    Good job he did not go to Real as they would not tolerate PhD clueless football in a serious city home to a footballing juggernaut.

    Inter Fans, Celebrating a plastic tilte they won cuz of a fake penalty and an home advantage nobody understands. But yeah, Juve are the criminals. Joke of a club and fans.

    Why are all these negative comments? Simple equation: INTER are better than juve.

    What makes me furious is that allegri does not know what to do when juve score a single goal .. you can see at 1-1 allegri just defended and hope for a lucky goal or a corner or something
    What sanchez did was a wish for allegri on the other end ..

    Roma v juve was the game
    Think that temp manager showed real juve go and play enjoy ur football score goals and you will Win
