Juventus boss Max Allegri following Benfica loss: “I absolutely don’t feel at risk”

Juventus boss Max Allegri has stated that he doesn’t feel at risk of being sacked as the Bianconeri boss.

Juve have now lost both of their first two Champions League games and it is the first time that it has happened in the club’s history. They were 1-0 up against Benfica through Arek Milik but conceded twice – once in each half to lose the game. 

The Bianconeri players were booed by the fans at the Allianz Stadium, with Leonardo Bonucci stating that they deserved to be jeered.

Allegri spoke to Prime Video (via TMW) after the game and was asked about his position at the club. The Italian stated: “I absolutely do not feel at risk. These moments are part of football. It is the first time that two games in a row have been lost in the Champions League. At 2-1 the game was over, they could have made it 3-1 or 4- 1. We could also equalize but it was a performance below expectations “.

It is also the first time in Allegri’s career that he has lost both the first two Champions League games, but he was also asked about how the team is responding.

He stated: “As a group we are working well. There are many expectations, but we also lack many players. We cannot fail to count this, at a numerical level, to make up for the players who have played so many games.”

Juve’s last win in all competitions came on the 1st of September against Spezia and that is their only win in seven outings in all competitions.
