I’m very sorry – Allegri reveals Juventus’ major problem this season
Max Allegri, the coach of Juventus, has acknowledged that his team is having difficulties this year pushing on the wings.
Juventus has had trouble in the first month of the new season so far.
The Old Lady has 10 points after seven games and is currently ranked eighth in Serie A.
Speaking to Il Corriere dello Sport, Allegri also apologized for the current situation of his team, as they lost to newly promoted Monza 1-0 at the weekend.
Allegri said, “I am very sorry for this situation and I often ask myself if I have made mistakes." The first answer that comes to mind is that Juventus had been thought of in another way. With Rabiot, Paredes, and Pogba in midfield plus [Manuel] Locatelli as the first substitute,
[Angel] Di Maria and [Federico] Chiesa on the wings, Vlahovic in the middle." The Juventus of now is virtual. I know we lack someone who can invent in the last thirty metres, but we signed Pogba and Di Maria for this. And we’re developing Miretti, the most suitable for that role among those there.
But he is not Pogba. He is only 19. We've got problems pushing on the wings. I can no longer ask players who have been running all their lives to continue doing so up the whole wing.
“If I ask [Juan] Cuadrado to be a winger, he can still do it very well." But I can no longer ask him to always do two roles. "
