Massimiliano Allegri was the protagonist of a very hard analysis at the end of Juventus-Milan. Not so much for the result, but for the way in which the Rossoneri’s draw has matured: “The games must be brought home by hook or by crook”. He criticizes himself on the changes, but he reproaches the attitude of his players.
The ranking of the Juventus begins to weigh. On the situation, on the examinations, on morale. And you can clearly perceive when Massimiliano Allegri introduces himself to the DAZN microphones for the post-match interview a few minutes before the final whistle of the match with Milan, which ended with a draw that matured in the final, in a way that the Livorno coach did not like.
“I am angry“, he says immediately at the beginning of the interview. And then he explains his extremely critical point of view towards the team:”We had a good first half, in the second we even risked losing it after the 1-1. We lost attention, on the corner where we conceded the goal we defended sufficiently. There is no way that others can score goals at that moment“.
The attitude of the team in the key moment of the match is the point on which Allegri is particularly excited. In his vision of football, quite simply, the possibility of losing important points is not contemplated in the way Juventus lost them tonight, with a timid defense on one of the few opportunities granted to Milan.
“In the final moments you have to be tough, bad, you have to bring home the contrast and play better – Allegri explains –. This is part of a growth that some players need to have. Winning games is a matter, here you play to win the championships and these games must not be drawn. Let us score goals because the others are good, not because we do it ourselves. In those moments you have to take the game home, by hook or by crook. And this we have to learn quickly“.
Allegri does not even spare himself and does mea culpa, openly: “I made the wrong changes, the responsibility is mine. I had to field more defensive players and I was wrong“. The substitutions did not have the desired effect, on the contrary:”Luckily the referee whistled the end because we risked losing this match. In those 15 minutes, if you do not understand the importance of the result and put personal things aside, making yourself available to the team at the cost of being a full-back even if you are a striker, these games do not take home.“.
“The team must defend with the knife between their teeth, otherwise you don’t win – Allegri concludes -. Leaving points like this is unlikely to win the championship“. The classification is clear, in this sense. And the margin of error is getting smaller and smaller.
