Allegri reacts to Juventus humiliating loss to Atletico

August 8, 2022 - 12:30 pm

The ever-positive Max Allegri claims his players must take some positives away from their match against Atletico Madrid yesterday.

The Spaniards beat the Bianconeri 4-0 in their training ground in Turin.

The match was their last pre-season game before the new season begins at the weekend, and fans hoped to see their team’s level of preparation.

They showed they are unprepared to deliver the league title from that performance, but Allegri still wants to focus on the positives.

The Juve gaffer insists the defeat is good for them, and they just need to focus on the positive.

He also suggests the players would have turned up differently if it was a competitive game.

The 54-year-old said, as quoted by Football Italia: “This defeat can only do us good.

“We were tired coming in, working hard in training after our return from America. Atleti are certainly at a more advanced stage than us in pre-season preparation, but there is still no excuse. The only solution is to be focused and prepare for our season opener against Sassuolo.

“We must find the positives from the negative situations, we’ve got a week to prepare, above all mentally. We know that when there are three points up for grabs, the attitude will be different.”

Juve FC Says

Allegri is always positive in his comment, and that is not a bad thing, but the reality is that we are not prepared for tough matches in this new season.

We often need a good preseason before we have a good campaign, and what we saw yesterday will not fill us with confidence.

Their performance against Sassuolo in the next match will go a long way in helping us build our expectation for the season.

    Simply an embarrassment. We continue to look like a mid table team under Allegri. He needs to go as well as those responsible for putting him there.

      we will have to wait until he is gone, until then they will throw vlahovic and the younger players under the bus and blame them while he doesn`t have a clue. remember he said we only needed two players at the end of last season`s total disaster. making morata look like prime Ibra is a world wide embarrassment. Bonucci should have been replaced immediately, Atleti were playing with us like a cat and a ball of wool. also remember, he doesn`t know locatelli`s role yet and we have a week to go.

    If only positive thinking during a loss will add three points for us, then we are sure we will be the champions in every competition

    the disaster is finally being realised. Hopefully our players can get points despite this non-coach given power yet again. Juve`s dna was ressurrected by Conte and he piggybacked off his his success; I`ve always said it and the truth is there to see. Bravo Agnelli, you`ll get us out of top 6 with this fool, and out of the champion`s league with your super league idea. Sarri and Pirlo got titles and trophies with players worse than this. Vlahovic will not be himself while clown allegri is there. everyone is wasting their time.

    This is absolutely disgusting and who can figure out what this administration is trying to do this team is built off of free transfers and the players we are trying to sell no one wants everyone Allegri tries to buy or is interested in they don’t go anywhere near the real value so are they really that broke or just cheap either way they should sell the team enough mediocrity from them and the agnellis are more responsible for the crash of a once pillar of European football

      Haha, pillar of European football that’s so funny. The pillars of European football are Real Madrid, AC Milan, Liverpool, and Bayern. Given how many times they won the Scudetto it’s shameful that they only won the Champions League twice. It’s quite embarrassing actually for Italian Football. I guess that’s why the rest of Europe consider it a retirement league.
