Inter-Juve, Allegri: ‘Nice performance, this point weighs a lot. Up Church … ‘

by admin

The Juventus coach after the 1-1 draw at Inter: “Church? For such a physical match I needed Kulusevski, who did well. After the bad start we left the bases in defense, slowly we will go up “

“This point weighs a lot because it came after a good performance”. Massimiliano Allegri sees, at least in the declarations, the glass much more than half full after the same last minute penalty at San Siro with Inter straightening a game that risked being dismissed as a heavy stop. And instead Allegri finds a way to declaim the virtues of his team’s evening: “Before the equalizer there were two or three situations in which we did not close the action, in which we had to do better. Then we played a little higher, with more confidence, against an excellent Inter, which is a physical team and has technique: we needed such a performance. It is an important point, we keep Inter on three points, but we must win games first of all to continue the positive streak and then to nibble a few more points before the break ”.

Church from the bench

What is behind the decision to leave with Chiesa from the bench? “It’s simple, I gave the line-up and put it out,” joked Allegri, who then explained the reasons: “It could have been a more physical game at the beginning and I needed a player like Kulusevski who made a good game at the beginning put pressure on Brozovic. Then the rhythms dropped, between Dybala, Kaio Jorge, Arthur, a growth in condition and confidence, it was the right time for him. Tonight after a good match is a good point, but now we have to win against Sassuolo ”.

More confidence and higher

One of the points on which Allegri often insists is the need for the team to gain confidence: “It mainly depends on the first three games, in which we left eight points out of nine and it conditioned us a bit. We had to start from the basics, that is a good order in the defensive phase to gain confidence and move forward, now ten to twenty meters and then it will be a little more ”. And on the possibility of playing less low, he explained: “In the first half, Inter raised the pace but we got up a lot both with Morata, with Kulusevski and with McKennie, then we made a mistake because we were too hasty: to succeed with continuity we need that those in front direct and give the first pressure well ”.

The ticket and the change

Allegri is in a good mood and jokes on the note that the cameras pinched, brought by Kaio Jorge to Bonucci on the occasion of the last change: “It was certainly a dead ball stuff, the responsibility lies with Landucci”, laughs the coach, who does not not even a case of the goal scored in ten when Bernardeschi asked to wait a minute instead of letting Bentancur enter immediately: “It’s a coincidence, Bernardeschi said to wait a moment, I waited a moment and … But it was a goal fortunately enough, we weren’t supposed to catch it even in ten. We need to improve in closing the action: we get there too many times and the ball passes into the area, but these are situations that must be closed “.

Closing with two strokes. One for Arthur: “He is an extraordinary player. He has an important dribble property, especially when Dybala is in the middle ”. And above all for Kaio Jorge: “He’s awake, he knows how to play football. He has good technique and I think he has an excellent chance of finding space and doing well, he has personality ”.
