Juventus manager Max Allegri has spoken out against the fact that the Bianconeri struggled in the first half against Salernitana.
The Bianconeri were 2-0 down to the visitors in the first half and managed to hit back with two goals in the second half. While Arek Milik did make it 2-2, the goal was chalked off as Leonardo Bonucci was in an offside position. Chaos ensued after this, as Milik, Juan Cuadrado and Federico Fazio were sent off. Allegri himself was sent to the stands.
After the game, the Italian spoke to reporters, who asked about the poor performance in the first half. The manager stated:
“Very bad first half? You say that. You watch the games but you don’t see them.”
Allegri stated that Juve had favourable situations in the first half and it was an error from Cuadrado that brought about the first goal.
“We had a good 20 minutes, then we conceded because of Cuadrado’s bad decision. Then the game should have been taken to half-time at 1-0, instead, we gave away the penalty. But in the first 20 minutes, we had favorable situations.”
The Bianconeri boss has come under fire for poor performances from the Old Lady and he has been criticised for the lack of an attacking approach. Their next game sees them take on Benfica in the Champions League.
