On Sunday, Juventus appeared to be in shambles while Diego Simeone’s men were tearing them apart at their own training ground in Continassa. Atletico Madrid won the friendly with four unanswered goals, including a personal hattrick for the all-too-familiar Alvaro Morata.
For Giovanni Galeone, this defeat should serve as a wake up call for the Bianconeri management, who must add at least another three or four signings, otherwise, the team will be unable to compete with the rest of the pool.
“Allegri’s Juventus needs at least four more signings, otherwise it takes a miracle to be competitive at a high level, especially after Pogba’s injury,” said the former Udinese manager in an interview with la Gazzetta dello Sport via Calciomercato.
“Have you seen the midfield against Koke, Saul and the others from Atletico Madrid? It was an unequal challenge.”
The retired coach is famously the friend and mentor of Max Allegri, and he once again rose to his pupil’s defense, wondering why he doesn’t get the same treatment as the other top managers in the world who often end up getting what they ask for on the market.
“The great coaches have the right to ask for the players they need. Why Guardiola, Conte and others ask and get while Allegri doesn’t?”
Galeone also believes that Gleison Bremer could struggle while playing as a left centre back, which was the same issue that haunted Matthijs de Ligt. He is also worried about Leonardo Bonucci who will have to cope without his longtime teammate Giorgio Chiellini.
would you choose to play for allegri rather than a positive coach that coaches, attacks and nurtures players? no one would. these players would absolutely flourish with proper coaching.
Also Allegri’s taste in players sucks.
Allegri’s mind is brilliant in terms of tactics. That’s why he is mostly called the anti-Guardiola. However, Juve board is being stupid and cruel at the same time, not allowing the sporting directors to conduct transfers that could change the powerhouse for its goodness. They should blame no other person but themselves if the team fails to recoup a single title.
because allegri players = unsaleable players. throughout history all allegri players do not bring profits to the club.
dybala? he leave for FREE.
sandro? he rotten until he played like a seri B fullback lol
even Ramsey also have to be Ramseyed.
allegri chosen players are sucks.
prone to injures.
nobody wants them.
look at danilo? cuadrado?
half of seri A wanted rovella while allegri dreaming to have 7.8M per season paredes who not really far better than rovella.
when we have the chance to sign donarumma? allegri chosen cesni who never even tasted UCL semifinal cause his sucks except for penalty saving.
basically allegri wants mediocre players that wont strengthening juve.
milan was destroyed because of allegri.
after allegri gone they have to rebuild the team.
NEVER GIVE ALLEGRI THE PLAYERS HE WANTS.
You are very on point, I don’t know how to reach management cos am sick to my stomach. Almighty Juve just going down and management can’t see it, so so SAD. Allegri is anti football, anti anything that is good.
You have clearly stated the raw truth. Nothing to add to your comment.
Let’s wait for a miracle this season.
If you sacked Allegri 3 years ago , it means your were not happy with his work a d style of football.
So I ask why would you offer him a 5 year deal again…
Has anyone questioned all the muscular injuries this team receives every year ?
Another hard year !!!!
Allegri is pain in the ass
