Juventus coach Max Allegri satisfied with his side’s determination against Fiorentina

Following Juventus‘ 1-0 victory over Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, coach Max Allegri provided his insight following the vital three points.

Youth academy graduate Fabio Miretti’s one-time strike in courtesy of a low-driven cross served by wing-back Filip Kostic in the opening ten minutes of the match-up was enough for the Bianconeri their fourth consecutive victory within the league.

Despite only attaining a single shot on target and having 30% possession throughout the entirety of the fixture, Allegri’s side’s discipline and work-rate defensively enabled his side to obtain their fourth 1-0 victory of their season and their eighth clean-sheet of the 2023/24 term.

As it stands, Juventus currently sit in second with a total of 26 points, only two points separating themselves from the league-leaders Inter. The Old Lady have managed to accumulate 13 points out 15 available, maintaining an unbeaten record of four wins and a draw within their last five outings.

While speaking to Dazn Italia, via TMW, Allegri touched upon his squad’s display on Tuscan soil in a post-match interview:

A terrifyingly effective Juventus, who continue not to concede a goal. What makes you most satisfied?

 “The 3 points and the performance of the boys who wanted it and looked for it against a Fiorentina who played very well. Playing against them is always complicated because they bring many men above the line of the ball, they move a lot and therefore it wasn’t easy We made a good move on the goal, we suffered more in the first half, while in the second Szczesny didn’t even make a save despite many crosses. In the first half we had many opportunities in the open field, with spaces, but we made many mistakes and the last step.”

  Compared to last year, all the guys in the squad have understood what mentality you want to give and how to win games, even when suffering and without playing. Everyone is available to fight. Then I would like to know what you are looking at now, forwards or backwards?

“We must always look forward; it should not be misunderstood with the Scudetto. I think that Inter, Milan and Napoli are better equipped than us, because they are ahead in building the team. We started again with many young people, with the right spirit, but we did different matches: technique against Verona, different today. The matches are also won in pain, with an excellent defensive phase. In the second half, if Kostic had dropped to Rugani’s line, who was on the opposite foot, he would have given him a hand in construction We must work to implement 2-on-2 situations in the open field, as happened in the second half.”

  What day is Juventus-Inter?

“In the meantime we have Cagliari, the match against Inter means nothing, the championship is long. We have an extraordinary group, and we must continue to work. Inter, Milan and Napoli have been built for years to win the Scudetti, we must have respect. Now we have to face Cagliari who Mr. Ranieri has put back in order, then there will be the break. The match against Inter is worth the charm of the match, which is always nice to play”
