Allegri: ‘Experience is only gained through playing’

Max Allegri was pleased with Juve’s 1-0 win over Lecce but offered a reminder that ‘young players will not become experienced overnight.’ The Bianconeri put in an ultimately convincing performance, with a wonder-goal courtesy of Juve youth product Nicolo Fagioli. Speaking to Sky Sport Italia after the game, Allegri was pleased with the win but expects more from his team:

 The team did well, came together as a team, as a group. They played a good game, they wanted this win, it was not easy because Lecce is a team that plays very well on the counter, has good technical players.

In the first half we could do better in the last 20-25 meters of the pitch, in the second half with a little more quality on the pitch we managed to unlock the game. We could have scored earlier, but overall the guys did well.

More angry? Yes, the psychological component is there, because playing at Juventus not is easy. Tonight certainly the boys were good, supported by those with more experience.

Then it’s normal that you have to grow in that aspect, in a chance that comes into the area like Kean’s chance, he has to score; in other situations where you had to do better inside the area you had to score, but this is a process of growth of all young boys.

We cannot think that overnight young boys will become experienced players, because experience is only gained by playing.

Iling Junior? He took a hit on his ankle, but nothing major.

Angry with Miretti? No, I told him he had the man behind his back, so he had to look over his shoulder and not just look at the ball.

Did we take tisks? It went well for us on the ball, but the ball went through a hundred legs on the final chance (that hit the Juve post) there we would have died. instead it went well for us.

Will we recover everyone for Wednedday? Absolutely not, the only one I think I will recover will be Locatelli.”
