Juventus press conference with Allegri on Vialli death, team news ahead of the match against Udinese and more

Max Statman



Massimiliano Allegri’s pre-Udinese press conference on Vialli’s passing away, team news and more.

On Gianluca Vialli: “I had the pleasure of meeting Vialli, he gave so much to football and to Juventus. I kindly ask you to take a minute’s silence in memory of these two men.

“He represented so much as a player, above all as a man. For the younger players he was certainly an example to follow. We will all miss him.”


On Di Maria and Paredes: “Tomorrow, regardless of the return to the Stadium, with our fans, the stadium will be full and it will be a good opportunity for us. Di Maria has recovered. Paredes is improving in condition, Bremer is tired, I will evaluate conditions today. Rugani will be ready to play. I will evaluate the formation today, I have to make choices.

“Today after training I will have defined the formation, against Udinese who are a physical team and are having an excellent championship. First of all, the ex Pereyra, an extraordinary player, excellent with us. Then Beto, a physicist, occupies the area with many players. It will be a complicated match, it’s the second of the start of the second part of the season.”

On Matias Soule: “Physically ready? Physically absolutely yes, he would be ready. I’m evaluating whether to let him play the fifth, he did it the other day and gave us a big hand, but he has more offensive qualities. He can play in the trocar, winger to enter the pitch It has quality and quantity, I’m happy with how it’s growing. As I always say, everyone is growing and young people need to be given time to grow, technically and in experience, but also physically.”

On Alex Sandro: “He’s fine, he should return, between Gatti and Rugani, Danilo and Alex Sandro and removing Bremer for now, who I will evaluate whether to risk him or not… 3 of these 4 play”.


On Federico Chiesa: “The other day he came on after 10 minutes, with the recovery they gave it was almost a time. In previous matches they gave 8 minutes, even 10, so whoever enters even at the end plays 35-40 minutes. Chiesa did well, physically he needed a game like that, picking up the pace. I don’t know if I’ll be able to get him to start from the beginning, but the further he goes, the more playing time he gets. I’m happy.”

On Moise Kean: “I gladly spend words, I’ve already spent them. He presented himself well, he’s lost six kilos. He’s growing, he’s maturing, he has a different presence. He’s heavier on the pitch, regardless of whether he plays well or badly, than on Sometimes it happens. Now he plays different matches, compared to last year. He has grown a lot. Tomorrow I have to evaluate whether to let him play with Milik or just one. Or whether to let Di Maria leave.”

On Cuadrado and De Sciglio: “Impossible tomorrow. Cuadrado is working well, in a week he can be with the team. He, De Sciglio, Vlahovic, Pogba are the times… I would say within 15 days to start having them with the team Not all, but most. You have to play these matches and have them all available.”

Personal memory about Vialli: “Personal memory… what Gianluca leaves, especially to the youngsters, is the expression of how he interpreted the matches. With heart, technique, passion”.


Scudetto prospects: “They don’t change. Napoli are the clear favourites, they have many points ahead after 17 games. They’ve had a stoppage and that’s okay, but I’d say that Napoli is having an extraordinary year, they’re still the clear favourites. Then c ‘it’s Inter, Milan… the goal is to stay in the top 4 and play for the chances in the Coppa Italia and Europa League”

Chiesa and Di Maria: “Second strikers? It depends on who plays behind, who makes the fourth or fifth, or old right wing.It is one thing to start at the beginning, another half an hour from the end, depending on the moments of the match.

“Regroup? Tonight we’ll stay in training camp, we’ll train at 4pm and stay here. Tomorrow we’ll play at 6pm and do as we’ve always done”.

On changes: “How do they change? It depends on the game, I always try to balance the team. If a midfielder has characteristics, you need something different. It’s the same for the strikers. It depends on the game, the conditions, the fact that we play less than 72 hours from the other game.


“They are all assessments. You have to have a little luck… if you win them, you guess them; if you lose them everyone says they have to do the opposite. Assessments made on physical and mental conditions, especially now that we have resumed playing.”
