Allegri: ‘We are satisfied and angry’

Juventus coach Max Allegri say’s he is both satisfied and angry after Juventus dropped out of the Champions League but still qualified for the Europa League. La Juve put in a much improved performance against PSG but still lost the match 2-1, despite encouraging performances from a patched together starting XI.

Speaking to Mediaset after the game, Allegri was rueful and reflective on their European campaign to date:

We had a good game, it’s a pity about the result. We are in the Europa League and from tomorrow we turn over a new leaf to focus on Serie A. We should be fired up, angry and get right back to work. There is a part of us that should be satisfied at achieving the Europa League spot, but another part has to be angry, because we cannot just let this elimination slide.

Chiesa? He had a good training session yesterday, I had a few doubts over his mental strength after so many months out, but he seemed calm and focused, so I felt inspired to bring him on. He is so eager and we need to just get him back gradually before the break for the World Cup, so he can be in the best shape come January.

We had various problems with injuries, there is a tough game on Sunday against what I believe to be the best team in Italy. We will have Bremer, Vlahovic and Di Maria back for that match.”
