Juventus have drawn 0-0 against AC Milan at the San Siro on Sunday evening. It was a boring match, with the Bianconeri not even having a single shot on target. With a win Juventus would have got into the top 4, but now they are 1 point behind in the standings.
After the game coach Max Allegri spoke with DAZN and here is what he had to say, first starting with the his thoughts on the match.
“Tonight was a good match, we came from a period of matches, head-to-head clashes, many races, tonight it was important to end January in the best possible way. To stay focused. In case of defeat. we went to 10 points and it would have been negative. We need to be calm, clear-headed in the last step. We are wrong in the measure. Nobody allowed it. The field did not allow us to. . We did better in the second half, in terms of clarity we could make the most of it in the open field. Met a good Milan, staying like this is important. There are many matches, we have already played head to head. The boys play more as a team, they understand how to handle the ball at certain times. We were trying to win but we didn’t succeed. ”
Next the coach talked about the season overall and the teams progress.
” The players have grown in self-esteem. As Ambrosini said, 8 times we did not concede, then 4 goals in Rome, 4 in the Italian Cup. Landucci is needed again on the bench, they never do it with me. It will be me. Dybala’s condition will increase, the same as Morata who will score more goals. Moise will give us a hand. Let’s not lose team spirit. We become presumptuous, we lose to anyone. We have to fight, we need to finish in the top 4 and we have recovered a lot of points. We could not think that the others would lose them all. At the moment I am happy with the classification. because we spent a lot, then we’ll see where we are at the end of February “.
He was also asked about the performances of Rugani and Dybala.
“Daniele is a very good player. The players are good or poor, you don’t change the qualities. After two years he had almost never played, but with personality and seriousness he now plays. He wants to stay at Juve, he makes himself available. At his best, beyond the possibilities. Rugani played as well as Giorgio who was also great, extraordinary match. In the first half, interventions as a true defender, he put his feet where it was difficult to put them. A boy who deserves to start. Dybala also had gastroenteritis, less than De Ligt, I threw him on the field. He gave us a hand”.
And finally he was asked about the team go forward without one of their best players Federico Chiesa, who before the game, under went successful knee surgery.
“Federico had surgery today, he is one who’s emotional, on and off the pitch, he is a player we miss. Aké now he is always with us, he breaks the game, but we have Kulusevski and Bernardeschi. With them we have to move forward. ”
