Former Juventus striker gives a damning assessment of their style of play

May 2, 2022 - 8:30 pm

Juventus doesn’t play the most exciting football under Max Allegri, almost everyone knows that now.

The Bianconeri manager prefers to set his team up to avoid losing instead of trying to beat the opponents comprehensively.

Does his system limit the potential of players? Probably. Considering how some technically gifted players have struggled to make an impact under him, he probably needs to do better.

After watching Juve play under Andrea Pirlo last season, with the likes of Federico Chiesa and Dejan Kulusevski thriving, some fans will wonder if Allegri’s team will ever be exciting to watch.

One of the club’s former players has now given a damning assessment of how the Bianconeri play.

Giuseppe Galderisi came through the ranks at Juve and played for them between 1980 and 1983.

He has not enjoyed watching the current team and said of it in an interview via Tuttojuve:

“It is a team that is good when it has to defend, but the 70 meters it has to do before scoring goals are many and it doesn’t always manage to do it. I see Vlahovic in great difficulty and also with less and less enthusiasm in what he does “

Juve FC Says

Every manager has a style of play he favours, and when it brings success, it automatically no longer makes sense to change it.

Allegri won five straight league titles as Juve’s manager in his first stint, and he would stick to the system that helped him achieve success.

The club will also give him at least one more season to get back to winning trophies, regardless of how his team plays.

    I believe allegri piggy backed off Conte`s positive way of playing. He is the Sam Allardyce of Italy. Brought in to avoid disaster and stable the ship. That`s fine, but building a future on that? unless the players actually train themselves to attack, management is happy with top4, no title and champion`s league humiliation. Lippi defined our Modern DNA, Conte continued later, allegri bus-parked it. We`ll see if the window changes that.

    Max style might just give the edge against tricky opposition, and not supposed to be displayed at all games as what we have saw throughout. To make things happen there is a demand of intelligent small group on the pitch, and not individuals. It would take this small group to arrange things with dressing room and training ground simulation.

    what is the purpose of watching the soccer game then , we juve fans should watch man city or any other team playing and just check the highlight of the results , better than get strokes and angry everytime i watch my team playing , because if juve keep playing like this maybe i need to start therapy some anger management classes. and allegry is a loser he just continued what conte started.
