Allegri: ‘Juventus are competitive as they are’

August 5, 2018

Max Allegri has dismissed the idea that Juventus will make any more signings this summer, insisting “we’re already competitive.”

The Bianconeri boss was speaking after Juve’s 3-1 defeat in the ICC pre-season friendly in the USA and despite reports linking Juve to Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Paul Pogba, Allegri was adamant there would be no more arrivals this summer.

“The club did what it had to do,” Allegri said after the final International Champions Cup friendly of the summer.

“More signings? We’re already competitive as we are and I can’t wait to start the season with everyone available.

“It’ll be a pleasure to coach Ronaldo, he’s the best player in the world with Messi. With the arrival of Bonucci, we have five players for two positions.

“It’ll be a very tough season, so we’ll need everyone. Some young players have showed a lot in the US, so they could also find space with us.

“The match was a great test for us, between two great teams. We were happy to be involved in the four games played here, ahead of the new season.

“It was a great experience for us, since we were able to measure up against a team with particular quality.”
