Allegri: Barcelona Victory, The Best Of My Career

share on:

Massimiliano Allegri has picked the 3-0 champions league over Barcelona as the best of his three years at Juventus.

Dybala scored a brace in the first half, to put the match in Juventus’ control, before Chiellini headed in the third goal in the second half.

The win brings a lot of joy to Italian coach, Allegri, who has praised his team for their performance in the match.

“Juventus have respect for Europe and above all are respected in Europe,” Allegri told Mediaset Premium. “That is the greatest result of my three years here.

“It was a great performance, we played well technically both in attack and defence. It is the first step towards the semi-final, but the second leg will be a different matter.

“I cannot say what percentage our chances of progressing are. In Barcelona we are going to have aim to score goals.”

“I am a dreamer, but also pragmatic and a realist,” Allegri added. “We are in a growth process, I am happy with what the players are doing and we have made important steps forward in the last few years.

“We had several chances in the first half, moving the ball around and forcing them to shift, but we got a bit too greedy for an extra pass. That’s something we need to work on and improve for the second leg.

“Juventus deserve credit, as everyone contributed to the defence by cutting off the passing channels, otherwise when the ball is at the feet of [Lionel] Messi, [Andres] Iniesta or [Luis] Suarez, you’re going to have trouble.

“We were sharp, with good passing moves, but we could have done better and in some moments tried to make direct passes too often.”
