Juventus boss Max Allegri following PSG defeat: “We are angry because we missed the opportunity”

Juventus manager Max Allegri has stated that the Bianconeri are angry because they missed out on a chance to pick up a point from the game against Paris Saint-Germain.

The game in Paris was largely played a slower pace than expected but PSG found a two goal cushion in the first half, as a brace from Kylian Mbappe handed them a solid advantage. While Juve were poor in the first half, they did well to pull one back in the second half and had a late chance to make it 2-2 as well, but the tie ended 2-1.

While Allegri has been criticised for his defensive playing style, the approach nearly helped the Old Lady get something from the game.

He spoke at the press conference after the game and gave his views on the defeat: “We had a good second half but we are angry because we missed an opportunity. They had many opportunities to close it but we were there consistently throughout the 90 minutes.

“In Florence, we had a good first half and bad the second. In Florence the first 20 minutes were not good, the second better but this should not make us sit down. We need to do better in the last minutes with the development of the game: we are angry because we could have brought home a positive result, despite PSG being extraordinary with fantastic players. “

The Bianconeri were held to a 1-1 draw by Fiorentina and Allegri’s approach faced criticism after that draw too. Juve’s next game will see them play against Davide Nicola’s Salernitana.
