Massimiliano Allegri spoke to Dazn’s microphones after the San Siro knockout:

He spoke of comforting silence in the locker room. Did you feel like saying something to the boys already?
“I think that after 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 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 a little ‘of favorable situations and we made a mistake, But we were very technically wrong, the size of the passes, it is normal that you pay them “.

Nedved said he saw a Juve in difficulty, especially on a physical level. Can we explain the non-reaction in the second half like this?
“I think there was also a psychological condition, 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. It’s normal that when you play. the head-to-head matches you have to arrive in a good psychological condition. The team also had a good first half, unfortunately we capitulated. But already in the first half, in the first shot we took on a technical error, we gave Leao an open field. In the second half equal to the 2-0 goal and then it is normal for it to collapse. But there have been too many technical errors. At this moment we just have to remain calm, roll up our sleeves and have the strength to restart. Maccabi with the mental strength to go and win the game “.

When an unfavorable situation occurs it is as if you notice concern on the pitch, you do not see anyone who takes the situation in hand and gives the alarm. They all look scared.
“Unfortunately, we have to take this thing off. Meanwhile, if we play forward we take less counterattack and are more dangerous, instead at some point we stop and start playing backwards. We took the first negative situation on a technical error, it had to be a hyper offensive situation for us and I think there was Leao’s post. Then we started playing backwards, instead we have to keep playing forward, this is the thing we have to improve on. Then we can’t measure the steps. making mistakes is impossible “.

Juve made good game pieces today and throughout the season. You look more downcast today. You talked about a difficult psychological condition, but you arrived here after two victories and therefore it had to be an optimal situation. Are you a little more worried than at other times?
“It is not that two games that give you enthusiasm solve the problems, it is normal that a direct match like this was important to achieve a result. I think the team also did well. But even here we are 5 against 3 and you have to score. 1, mistakes 2, mistakes 3, mistakes 4 … then there were technical errors. At this moment we are not even lucky, on the corner kick we smoothed the ball, the ball remained there. We have to be even a little bit more bad on these things, on the contrasts, in the desire, to take our fears off us, because in this way we will hardly be able to have a balance to go forward in the championship.

You have made a great start, but little by little you have crouched down and compacted backwards. Because?
“More than compacted backwards, we played the ball backwards. When you play the ball backwards it is normal that the others take the field, they come at you, without doing anything, without great pressure, we had the possibility to play the ball forward, this did not happen. We have to work on this and improve.”
