Following the Bianconeri’s nerve-wrecking 1-0 victory against Verona, Juventus boss Max Allegri provided his insight on the match.
While it seemed as if the Gialloblu were going to stun the Old Lady by finding the opening goal as they missed several occasions within the first half, Juventus demonstrated their ability to shift into the third gear at any given moment.
A sudden counter lead to Frenchman Adrien Rabiot slither a through ball to Moise Kean on the break towards goal. The Italian international attempted a cheeky chip and although it took several deflections, it somehow obtained just enough height to levitate above the keeper and find it’s way in the back of the net.
While there was some great deal of controversy as Juventus managed to get away with two penalties that were questionably disallowed by VAR, Allegri’s side sealed a vital win, making it five consecutive victories within the league for the first time since 2020.
Following the crucial match-result, the Tuscan tactician provided his insight on the Bianconeri’s display, via La Gazzetta dello Sport:
It wasn’t a great game under the technical level, but when you play against these teams you know. The boys interpreted the match well and it is an important sign. We arrived at the appointment after having recovered some important players. Kean initially did. he positioned badly, he did better in the second half as did Milik. Technically, Kean is a dirtier player than others but he has the chances. If he played a lot of games he would maybe score a lot of goals, but that doesn’t mean he’s not very important to us. Mentally has a positive attitude.”
