“I spent 5 wonderful years at Juve. Would I go back? I don’t know, it’s impossible to say … Andrea (Pirlo, ed) is doing a good job ….”. Massimiliano Allegri breaks the silence and speaks on the day when Juventus, who sacked him 2 years ago after 5 championships in 5 years, hit rock bottom by losing at home to Benevento. The Juventus team, coached this year by Andrea Pirlo, has never convinced in a complicated season. On social media, the hashtag #PirloOut appears and the appearance of Allegri in the Sky Sport studio gives breath back to those who would like the Livorno technician on the bench of the Old Lady again.
“With Juventus we split naturally after 5 years. There was a diversity of views. It is not a question of tactics, at Juventus we have to win. We agreed on almost everything, the choice was made by the president, with whom we have remained on excellent terms. It has been 5 unrepeatable years, a special alchemy has been created. It is not easy to convey certain things after 5 years, this is why the president, with Paratici and Nedved, has decided to change me. And “The logical end of a relationship with wonderful years has arrived. I have remained very attached to Juve, I am fond of the teams where I have been”, says Allegri.
“Would I go back? I don’t know, it’s impossible to even say. Andrea” Pirlo “is doing a good job. I don’t know what difficulties he may have, the teams must be trained and the problems must be known from the inside. The job of a coach is difficult and you can’t explain what to do. Monday to Saturday is one thing, Sunday in a game is another thing entirely: managing the unexpected in a game is a special thing “, he adds. “Juve have won the Super Cup, they are in the final of the Italian Cup and are fighting for a place in the Champions League. There is a generational change, all the teams go through these moments. If they win the Italian Cup, the year would be positive for the team. Juve. I’m sorry that he lost against Benevento, but we must acknowledge the merits of Benevento who played an important game. Inzaghi was very good at preparing the match “, he continues. Juve flopped in the Champions League by coming out in the round of 16 against Porto: “Juventus were very unlucky, perhaps they would also have deserved to go against Porto”.
