Allegri: ‘Lets look at the positives…’


Juventus coach Max Allegri believes it’s important to ‘look at the positives’ following their disappointing 0-0 draw with Sampdoria. The Bianconeri were very poor in their approach, with striker Dusan Vlahovic having just three touches in the first half of the game.

Speaking to DAZN after the match, the coach tried to focus on the positive aspects after two game weeks:

“We didn’t concede goals for two games. Sampdoria did well in the first half, we showed some good things after the break and had a big chance at the end, unfortunately the thing we must never do in football is to back off. It happened against Sassuolo too, we ran backwards, it’s a pity because we dropped two points tonight.

Moise Kean was going backwards on that corner in stoppages and took the ball off Bremer’s head. You must never run backwards.

We did not do well in the first half, but Dusan played better in the second and he just needs to be a bit calmer when the ball reaches him.

We occupied the penalty area better after the break too, but we certainly need to work to do better.

We are missing Paul Pogba and Federico Chiesa, who are important players. We want to achieve something great, we are a little further behind schedule than the others and need a little more patience.

Not conceding a goal in two games is a good sign, now we will prepare for the big match against Roma.”
