The Previous Woman is shedding her thoughts. After two difficult years marked by disappointing outcomes, early Champions League qualifiers and two fourth locations in Serie A, Juventus wished to start out the 2022-23 season effectively. To this finish, Massimiliano Allegri counted on a switch window to strengthen the staff of orphans Paulo Dybala, Matthijs de Ligt and Giorgio Chiellini. His administration tried to fulfill him by recruiting Angel Di Maria, Paul Pogba and even Gleison Bremer. However the Italian technician couldn’t rely on all his troops, as some parts have been positioned on the flank.
Juve is in hassle
Which did not assist Juve get off to a very good begin. Certainly, after eight video games performed in all competitions, the Turin have a horrible report of two wins, 4 attracts and a pair of losses. Though undefeated in Serie A (2 wins and 4 attracts), the Italian staff (8e, 10 points) disappoints. It’s even worse within the Champions League, as a result of they’ve misplaced twice (final draw with Maccabi Haifa, 0 factors). First time towards Paris Saint-Germain (2-1). Second, yesterday against Benfica (2-1). Nonetheless, it began fairly effectively with the opening Arkadiusz Milik (4.).
Not a lot then. The Previous Woman returned to her habits and at last bowed down at house. A defeat that didn’t go over to the followers current on the Juventus stadium. The latter additionally whistled the gamers. What Captain Leonardo Bonucci totally understood, questioned by Gazzetta dello Sport after the assembly. “After all the whistles are justified. Now we have to fret as a result of we get out of the sport too usually. I do not know if the causes are psychological or bodily. We attempt to be constant. We misplaced a match that we completely shouldn’t lose..
The Italian press is spinning the gamers
It implements: “It’s true that we’re booed. There’s not a lot to say, we should stay silent, work and transfer ahead. I feel this can be a state of affairs that may be modified, we’ve got numerous absent gamers. Right this moment it is everybody’s fault. They aren’t solely the gamers, not solely the coach, not solely the membership. It is everybody’s fault.. And nobody is spared this Thursday within the transalpine press. “Juve Derailments: Do One thing Please”titre Tuttosport. The Italian media then launched a sulphateuse to light up Juventus gamers. Everybody took lots.
“It is not simply Allegri’s fault. The tasks of the gamers are additionally apparent. Somebody has to do one thing rapidly, the season is interrupted after simply 6 league video games and a pair of Champions League video games, each misplaced, setting a brand new unfavorable report in Juventus historical past. Dusan Vlahovic, who has a internet of seven.5 million in a season, fails to deal with the ball, misses an correct go and stays offside. Di Maria is bodily absent. Cuadrado in spirit. McKennie, awkward as all the time. So many decisive gamers are lacking. Solely Allegri’s fault? Perhaps not, however now solely he can do one thing..
Allegri, perpetrator No. 1
In my view, Gazzetta dello Sport worries. “The Champions League is hanging within the steadiness, not even within the league: however the staff is tailor-made for Max”writes a publication on pink paper that doesn’t spare the bianconero coach. “They (the leaders, ed.) Listened to him, happy him. All in all or nearly. A yr in the past, Allegri wished a middle ahead, an actual 9, a floor fox: in January, they took Vlahovic, not less than the perfect then; now it’s a lot much less efficient and too nervous, maybe additionally as a result of it’s poorly operated. Fabio Capello additionally confronted Allegri on Italian TV.
“It was a troublesome sport, Juventus by no means managed to regain their benefit. They didn’t have the tempo of their opponents. After nice minutes, we observed an enormous distinction in high quality and depth. This can be a troublesome second for Bianconeri. (…) They took severe counterattacks, there was no steadiness on the pitch. The Benfica gamers had will, energy and pace. Fortunate? Earlier than he had one other staff, now he can not discover the important thing to the issue and path “. All the time backed by his management whereas the rumor broke unfastened Twitter after his dismissal assembly, Allegri should discover options and re-mobilize his group.
A cloakroom that’s questioning itself
A gaggle that, after all, wouldn’t be totally behind him. Following the match, Angel Di Maria reportedly informed Milik who got here out within the seventieth minute: – Why did he change you?. Photos that ignited social networks. However the Turin technician feels no strain. “Me at risk? No, onerous occasions are a part of the sport, all you are able to do is shut up and work. We performed effectively for the primary 20 minutes, then we began to tug again and combat. It may be stated that after 2: 1 the sport is virtually over. We could have conceded extra targets, we had an opportunity to attain on the finish of the sport, however the efficiency would have been the identical. You need to shut up, work and take into consideration the subsequent league sport..
He added: “These moments are coming, they may come once more, we’ve got to go away the staff with nice duty, we’ve got a troublesome match on Sunday, then we’ll take into consideration the Cup, nothing is misplaced”. Juventus have by no means misplaced twice in a row within the first two days of the UEFA Champions League group stage, so a response is anticipated on Sunday at Monza during the seventh day of Serie A. The brand new under-performance may greater than ever seal the destiny of Massimiliano Allegri in a scorching seat.
