Juve, Allegri speaks before Cagliari

Juventus coach: “Tomorrow in Cagliari it will be a bad game, let’s prepare. The form? I will think about whether to play with a two-man or three-man midfield. It will be a complicated game , but we know how much the three points count”

“Compliments annoy me, because you don’t have to make excuses. I just want wins.” Massimiliano Allegri thus responds to those who remind him of the match well played, but lost, with Inter, because for him only the results have always counted. “We are fourth because we deserve it, on Sunday night we had an important opportunity but we didn’t take advantage of it, the rest is wind. Deserving to win is abstract, you have to stay in reality”.


However, for the first time, the coach admits that “beating the Nerazzurri would have revived a bit of speranzella (for the Scudetto, editor’s note) even if it was necessary to win them all”. But now he expects the team to keep their feet on the ground and not complicate the path to the next Champions League: “Tomorrow it will be a complicated game because Cagliari come out of a bad defeat – says -he-. They are a physical team and technically a bad game. Three points count for us because we have Roma at five and we cannot run the risk of finding ourselves a potential plus eight in fourth place. to one plus two”.


Allegri will go to Cagliari without Locatelli, absent for a month, and without De Sciglio and Morata suspended. A total of 6 absentees, but the reasons will make the difference: “We have to play a great match, I will think about playing with the midfielder in two or three. In football you can only react in one way, by adapting to the next match. It’s not easy to win in Cagliari. , tomorrow you have to prepare for a certain type of match. You have to be practical. We are physically good and there are all the conditions to make a good match but the mental condition with which we will face the match will count a lot”.


Without Morata, Dybala seems sure of his place alongside Vlahovic, with one between Kean and Bernardeschi completing the trident: “Bonucci is doing much better, I’ll think about whether I should let him play from the start or take him to the bench.” Dybala with the suitcase? reach, everyone must give their contribution to be in the top four and play in the Italian Cup final. Right now you just have to be focused and not think about the transfer market. Our aim is to get into the top four but with the three points it’s easy to get sucked in, even if with Roma we have the advantage of direct confrontations. But the mental state can change easily. The team so far has done well, we have missed in attack in our three best games, with Atalanta, Villarreal and Inter. You have to work on that to make the most of attacking situations. Rabiot is best in a two-man midfield as he has one leg and covers a lot of ground. It has a diving motor. rso of the others, with Inter he also played well technically, he became more vertical. It can be the right game for Bernardeschi, for Kean and for Vlahovic, it has to be the right game for everyone because we can’t joke at the moment.”


Finally McKennie, out with a metatarsal fracture, who could return for the final season: “McKennie is still late, we hope that within a month he will be able to return to play the last matches”.
