Juventus boss Max Allegri has spoken to the press following the Bianconeri’s 2-0 loss to Milan at the San Siro.
While the game was billed as a high-profile encounter, Juve’s performance didn’t match the billing as they failed to threaten Milan’s goal and conceded one goal in each half. Goals from Fikayo Tomori and Brahim Diaz helped the Rossoneri pick up three points from the tie.
After the game, Allegri spoke to DAZN (via TuttoJuve) and he gave his views about the game and the errors made on the pitch that the Bianconeri had to pay for.
“I think for tonight’s game, there is very little to say. We are in a moment of fluctuations, we thought we had come out of the slightly more negative period with these two victories, but tonight we have relapsed. Too bad because in the first 20- 25 minutes, we had done well, even during the first half.
“Then we started to play a little backwards, without them bothering us so much and there we didn’t create anymore. In the first half, especially at the beginning, we had littlefavorable situations and we made a mistake, But we were very technically wrong and it is normal that you pay the mistakes.”
Allegri believes that the squad is not in a good psychological condition and that problem is something the side continues to struggle with, even after the defeat at San Siro.
“I think there was also a psychological issue, now it’s not easy at this moment, because you get two results, then you get one wrong, we lost a lot of points with the small and medium-sized teams, between Sampdoria, Monza and Salernitana.”
The Bianconeri are eighth in Serie A right now and have won only once in their last five league games and have only three points in the UEFA Champions League.
