Serie A: I’m very sorry – Allegri reveals Juventus’ major problem this season
Juventus coach, Max Allegri, has revealed that his team have problems pushing on the wings this season.
Juventus have struggled so far in the opening month of the new season.
The Old Lady currently sits on the eighth position on the Serie A table with 10 points from seven games.
Speaking to Il Corriere dello Sport, Allegri also apologized for the current situation of his team as they lost to newly promoted Monza 1-0 at the weekend.
Allegri said, “I am very sorry for this situation and I often ask myself if I have made mistakes. The first answer that comes to mind is that Juventus had been thought of in another way. With Rabiot,Paredes and Pogba in midfield plus [Manuel] Locatelli as the first substitute.
“[Angel] Di Maria and [Federico] Chiesa on the wings, Vlahovic in the middle. The Juve of now is virtual. I know we lack someone who can invent in the last thirty metres, but we signed Pogba and Di Maria for this. And we’re developing Miretti, the most suitable in that role among those there.
“But he is not Pogba. He is only 19. We’ve problems pushing on the wings. I can no longer ask players who have been running all their lives to continue doing so up the whole wing.
“If I ask [Juan] Cuadrado to be a winger, he can still do it very well. But I can no longer ask him to always do two roles.”
