Massimiliano Allegri He tells his version. Not in a real interview, but in an informal conversation with Mario Sconcerti, which was posted this morning by Corriere della Sera. And these words attributed to Max Filter: “I am very sorry for this situation and I often wonder if I have made any mistakes. The first answer that comes to my mind is that Juventus thought otherwise. With Rabio-Paredes-Pogba in the midfield in addition to Locatelli to be the first to take charge. Di Maria and Kiza on the wings, Vlahovic in the middle. Juventus is now a default. I know nobody knows how to invent the last 30 metres, but we took Pogba and Di Maria for it. And we strengthen Meriti, the most suitable in this role among those who are. But it’s not Pogba. It’s 2003. We have problems pressing the side wings. I can no longer ask players who have been running all their lives to continue to make up the entire squad. If you ask Cuadrado to play a winger, he still knows how to do it well. But I can no longer ask him to always play two roles.”
Personal – “Something is missing. We stop early. This is my job, we work on it every day. However, many of the mistakes are technical.”
Market – “We’ll be able to count on Chiesa and Pogba in January, then we’ll see what we can ask of them right away. They aren’t bikes. How long will it take to get back to their height? There are objective difficulties, I know, I haven’t trained for a day and I’ve always made some mistakes. . But I repeat, this is now the default Juventus. I am happy with the market project, I liked it. But there are no players on the field. Try to take five starters from Inter or Milan.”
Game – “I’ve seen intently on sky Carlo Ancelotti interview with Paolo Kondo. He said that after losing his first two matches, he asked the team to go down twenty meters and wait for Shakhtar. real do you understand? They won 5-0. PSG lost 1-0 in Israel, then Messi, Mbappe and Neymar scored, not three goals. Quality is always in the players, not the charts. A good coach must first of all think of the players. I now have half of the starting team. Half a team is correct. After Benfica stopped to speak to Rui Costa, I will never stop. He told me that today’s football is flipped, if a player makes a good pass he is already a phenomenon. If he throws forty meters, a double phenomenon. For me in football it should come naturally to pass the ball well, to know how to shoot it. Today the rule is replaced by the exception. It cannot be so. I love the quality of my players, I looked for them and wanted them. I do not have specific styles, I adapt the game to their qualities. I’m not a phenomenon for this, it’s a profession. The player consists of details that must always be considered. For example, there is no way to stop the ball. There are two. If you stop it backwards it is a defensive stop, if you know how to do it forward it starts an attack. This is real football, applied. Like passes: it is not enough to give the ball to a teammate in the area, you have to give it to him a counted number of laps or else he does not shoot into the goal, he has to turn first. Today the players do not think, they obey. They do not explain. This is the easiest solution. Whereas football is the sum of individual fantasies. With Benfica, Di Maria entered a few minutes and put one in front of the goalkeeper from thirty meters away. Can I say it was a pattern? No, it was Di Maria. I have these guys, if all of us, we’re strong. Today I don’t even know which team we’re going to go to Monza with, a game we can only win. But I have two more bruises and no longer have alternatives. I’m looking forward to winning, after being able to get at least three players back.”
players – “I can say that Bremer is very strong. I expected a lot from Milik and a lot will come. Do you know why? Because Milik still plays well in football, he always makes the slightest mistake. He knows how to move. To I miss Rabiot so much today. Many debate it, but Rabiot does 13-14 well in every game and always weighs heavily on the field. Let’s go back to the previous point: Rabiot has technique and fitness.”
future – “We have to win in Lisbon and defeat Haifa twice and see if that is enough. In the league, Inter are the strongest, even if they lack Perisic’s team. I strengthened a lot in the midfield with Mkhitaryan and Aslani, which is good. Milan has two exceptional and recent players. Extremely, Theo Hernandez and Leo. Back to the physical importance. There is no other person in the world that jumps human with the strength and lightness of Yao. When we are all together, we are also very strong. But we’ll talk about it again, hopefully soon.” Calciomercato.com.
