How Allegri’s Juventus differs from Sarri and Pirlo versions

August 26, 2021 - 9:00 pm

Following the departure of Massimiliano Allegri in 2019, the club underwent two forgettable seasons under the tutelage of his predecessors.

Perhaps Maurizio Sarri and Andrea Pirlo weren’t the only ones to blame for the underwhelming performances on the pitch, but their methods arguably didn’t suit the roster.

Therefore, Max was called up for a second stint as the club attempts to reignite the fire that has been missing as of late. And whilst the final result from season opener wasn’t exactly encouraging, the tactician is still tipped to succeed in his mission.

According to Tuttosport via ilBianconero, Allegri’s Juventus can be summarized by three key points. First of all, the manager wants to exploit the quality at his disposal in the right manner, and that is considered to be fundamental for success.

Secondly, the players must be able to read and intercept the match. They should know when to go forward and when to go with a more cautious approach.

Thirdly, Juventus players must adopt the club’s mentality, and thus, silly mistakes – like the ones witnessed against Udinese – are simply inexcusable.

Besides these points, Allegri wants his players to be thinkers rather than robots who replicate the same patterns on the pitch over and over again, as they were arguably asked to do during Sarri’s era, and perhaps Pirlo’s reign to a lesser degree.

This is why the Livorno native rarely interferes during training sessions, leaving his staff to explain the tactical methods. Nonetheless, Max would add his own “wisdom pills” from time to time as the source explains.

    It could take two years to get back to what Allegri left Juventus with in 2019. The owner Agnelli was to blame for the signing of Ronaldo, in 2018, and that led to the end of Allegri 2 years ago. Now we see Ronaldo causing trouble and wanting to leave today 27th August 2021, and basically leaving Juventus knowing that he has done nothing to help them and received lots of money to do this. I hope their owner will learn from his terrible mistakes, including trying to break up the big 4 European leagues in 2020, and let Allegri decide how he wants to manage the club he owns. If Allegri does not win Serie A in 2023 then he should leave, but not before then.
