TORIN – Tomorrow the match against Genoa, a match with a view to the Coppa Italia final is scheduled for Wednesday against Inter. There Juve from Max Allegri, who mathematically conquered the presence in the next edition of the Champions League on the last day of the championship, is preparing for this double close confrontation. These are the words of the coach at the press conference tonight: “Tomorrow the best line-up will be on the field. Danilo wants to rest, he’s back with the team Sunday morning. Pellegrini’s ankle is in disarray and will not be available, Cuadrado and De Sciglio will be there instead. Mattia, not playing on Wednesday, I hope he can handle 90 minutes. From now until the end of the championship we must try to score as many points as possible. We reached the minimum goal of fourth place three days too early, and we are happy about that. Tomorrow we will play a good match“.
Italian cup goal
Still on the topic of training: “Who will play in the attack tomorrow? I decide today. Zakaria? It is difficult to play all matches very well, he came from another league, here there is more energy consumption on the mental level. I’m very fond of him, he’s a smart guy and he teaches“. Of course thoughts also go to the final of the Italian Cup: “The Italian Cup is a goal, as the Champions League, which is a very difficult competition to win. Nothing is impossible and there must always be the ambition to be able to win, you must never limit yourself. At the start of the season, when we start, all rallies should be a goal. We play this match on Wednesday and we are happy to be there. We are three days from the end of the championship with the Italian Cup final to play and we all have to make ourselves available to the team to get the results. In the end, it’s just what happens on the pitch that matters“. Aroundacclimatization of Dusan Vlahovicthen the Juventus coach explained: “I’m very happy for Dusan. I did not expect that he would be able to immerse himself so well in the team and in Juventus. He’s done very well so far and I’m really happy. He, like others, can only get better. Probably played tomorrow“.
Congratulations to Ancelotti and Orsato
Allegri also commented on the Champions League semi-final won by Real Madrid over Manchester City: “A wonderful match. I have to congratulate Carlo Ancelotti because he did something extraordinary.I’m very happy for him, because after everything he did, he was criticized a lot. It was not considered fashionable, but as I always say: fashion passes, classics remain. It must have been a huge satisfaction for him to win 5 championships in 5 different countries and now he has the chance to win 4 Champions. You just have to compliment him. Even Orsato deserves them for the way he judged yesterday in an extraordinary way, with great confidence. “
The growth of young people
Returning to the Juventus area, Allegri is sure of the next races: “When Juventus play matches, they play them to win, walking around and making a bad impression is not like Juventus. Tomorrow we have to have a good match: We have to play in a full stadium against a fighting team. I also expect that we will do better technically because we are free from the burden of having to reach fourth place“. Miretti could still find a place in midfield:”Miretti is available and has the opportunity to play. Let’s see how Arthur feels and if I can turn them around a bit. If the youngsters are good, they play. Sometimes it generalizes a bit, we in Italy have to do what we know how to do well. There are good young people and it’s normal that the more they play, the more experience they get, and that’s basic. There is a path to be followed. I have to congratulate Mr Zauli, because yesterday, under the age of 23, they passed two rounds of the play-offs for the first time. Second team is very important, they get a different mentality than Primaveras“.
The education choices
In any case, there will be room for the boy promoted by the youth sector, as Allegri confirms: “Miretti plays tomorrow! So Szczesny, Rabiot and also De Sciglio. The Italian Cup does not change the evaluation of the season, but there is a trophy up for grabs. It will be a beautiful evening of sports, for the last 2 years the final has been played in front of a couple of people while returning to Rome in front of another audience. They are beautiful events to live, if we are lucky we will take it home, but the important thing is to be there to play it. We are all waiting for the final, but first there is another match and then we have to go to the challenge with serenity against Inter, which is the strongest team in the league. As far as Serie A is concerned, I think being fourth at the moment is an excellent result as we were very far from fourth place a few months ago. Now we have to do the best we can to close in the best way“.
