‘I’m without half a team, it’s a virtual Juve, not the one I thought of. I miss Rabiot, Chiesa and Pogba on the pitch in January ‘

All field. Massimiliano Allegri spoke to Mario Sconcerti about the moment of Juventus, this is the reconstruction since Corriere della Sera: “I am very sorry for this situation and I often wonder if I’ve made any mistakes. The first answer that comes to my mind is that Juve had been thought of in another way. With Rabiot-Paredes-Pogba in midfield plus Locatelli to make the first to take over. Di Maria and Chiesa on the wings, Vlahovic in the middle. Juve is now virtual. I know there is no one who knows how to invent in the last thirty meters, but I got Pogba and Di Maria in charge for this. And we are enhancing Miretti, the most suitable in that role among those who are. But it’s not Pogba. It is a 2003. We have problems with pushing on the side wings. I can no longer ask players who have been running all their lives to keep making the whole band. If I ask Cuadrado to do the wing, he still knows how to do it very well. But I can no longer ask him to always play two roles. “

PERSONALITY – “Something is missing. We stop early. This is my job, we are working on it every day. But many mistakes are technical”.

MARKET – “We will be able to count on Chiesa and Pogba in January, then we will see what we can ask them immediately. They are not bicycles. How long do I have to get back to their height? There are objective difficulties, I know them, I have not trained for a day and I have always made a few mistakes. But I repeat, this is now a virtual Juventus. I am happy with the market project, I liked it. But there are no players on the pitch. Try to remove five starters from Inter or Milan. “

GAME – “I saw with interest on Sky Carlo Ancelotti’s interview with Paolo Condò. He said that after losing the first two games, he asked the team to drop down twenty meters and wait for Shakhtar. Real, you understand? They won. 5-0 Psg lost 1-0 in Israel, then Messi, Mbappè and Neymar scored, not three anyone. The quality is always in the players, not in the schemes. A good coach must first of all think about the players. I now have half of the starting team out. Half team right. After Benfica I stopped to talk to Rui Costa, I would not have stopped more. He told me that today football is overturned, if a player makes a good pass he is already a phenomenon. If he throws a throw of forty meters, double phenomenon. Me in football it must be normal to pass the ball well, to know how to pass it. Today the rule is exchanged for the exception. It can’t be like that. I love the quality of my players, I looked for them and wanted them. I have no set patterns, I adapt the game to their qualities. I am not a phenomenon for this, it is a profession. The player is made up of details that must always be taken into consideration. For example, there is no way to stop the ball. I had to. If you stop it backwards it is a defensive stop, if you know how to do it forward, it begins an attack action. This is real football, applied. Like the passes: it is not enough to give the ball to a teammate in the area, you have to give it to him with counted laps otherwise he does not shoot at the goal, he must first turn around. Today the players don’t think, they obey. They don’t interpret. This is the easiest solution. While football is a sum of individual fantasies. With Benfica Di Maria arrived a few minutes and put one in front of the goalkeeper from thirty meters. Can I say it was a pattern? No, it was Di Maria. I have these players, if we are all, we are strong. Today I don’t even know which team we will go to Monza with, a game only to be won. But I have two more bruised and I have no more replacements. I look forward to the belay, after I will be able to recover at least three players. “

PLAYERS – “I can say that Bremer is very strong. I expected a lot from Milik and a lot is coming. Do you know why? Because Milik plays well in football anyway, he always makes the slightest mistake. He knows how to move. A I miss Rabiot a lot today. Many discuss it, but Rabiot does 13-14 good things per game and on the pitch he always weighs. Let’s go back to the previous point: Rabiot has technique and physique “.

FUTURE – “We have to win in Lisbon, beat Haifa twice and see if that’s enough. Inter are the strongest in the league, even if they lack Perisic’s side. They have strengthened a lot in midfield with Mkhitaryan and Asllani, who is good. Milan has two exceptional and very modern players, Theo Hernandez and Leao. We return to the importance of physicality. There is no other in the world who leaps man with the power and lightness of Leao. When we are all, we are very strong too. But we’ll talk about it again, hopefully soon “.
