Allegri: ‘I haven’t considered resigning’

Juventus coach Max Allegri says he hasn’t considered resigning, despite their dismal recent run of form in both Serie A and the Champions League. The Bianconeri are on the brink of being eliminated from Europe’s prestige competition and are a doubt to qualify for the Europa League as well, following a humiliating 2-0 loss to Maccabi Haifa.

Speaking to Sky Sport Italia after the defeat, Allegri was at a loss to explain why the team was struggling:

It is difficult to explain, we can only be silent, because it was not a good performance in terms of character.

We must emerge from this situation and keep quiet. Tomorrow we return to Turin and we’ll remain at the Continassa training ground until the derby.

It’s not a technical or tactical issue, this team lacks heart and passion. We play too much as individuals, we need to get back to being a team.

Agnelli said we should be ashamed? He’s right, it was our worst first half. Every now and then it helps to go into a training retreat, we have more time to work. It’s not right to play like this.

Have I considered resigning? No, when a challenge becomes difficult, it is even more exciting. We’ve got to emerge from this with courage and hunger.”
