Juventus manager Max Allegri has stated that he is not worried about losing his post at the Juventus Stadium
Following a blistering campaign last term, Juventus have endured a terrible start to the season this time around and following their recent 2-1 defeat at the hands of Napoli, the Italian champions are currently languishing at 15th place in the Serie A table.
Away from their domestic troubles though, Juventus have done very well in Europe and the Old Lady continued their perfect start by claiming a 2-0 victory over Spanish side Sevilla on Wednesday night.
The victory has meant that a lot of pressure has been lifted off of Allegri’s shoulders and now the former AC Milan boss will surely be hopeful of his team getting back on track in the league as well.
Following the game though, Allegri has stated that he feels no pressure whatsoever despite Juventus’ difficult start to the campaign and added that the win over Sevilla is a step towards his side’s recovery process which should take place in the coming weeks.
Speaking to reporters following the game, Allegri said, “I have no stone in my shoe. I believe in what I do; why should I worry? Tonight was the first step of a team that has to play at great levels. I was very happy with these guys, who want to grow and manage the game.
“Over the past five years at Juventus and AC Milan I got good results, thanks to the players. The lads put in a good performance tactically, technically and defensively.
“Sevilla are a very solid team and dangerous in attack, but when the lads are open to working hard and sacrificing themselves for the team, we can do well. If you keep the ball it is easier to play, attack and defend. We still have to improve this aspect, but it is getting better.”
Alvaro Morata was among the goals once again for Juventus on the night and the Spanish star expressed his delight at being able to guide Juventus to victory as well as of his burgeoning partnership with Paulo Dybala in attack.
The former Real Madrid youngster said, “I am happy to have scored a goal, but above all for the victory of the team. I haven’t been playing alongside Dybala for long, but we have an excellent rapport and spend a lot of time together off the field too.
“Today we tried a couple of moves, we have to continue working and in the end we’ll find the right spaces.”
