The Old Lady lost this Tuesday evening in the Champions League against Benfica (4-3) and said goodbye to the competition.
At the microphone of Mediaset, Massimiliano Allegri, coach of Juventus, said that it was now necessary to “think about the championship” after the elimination in the group stage of the Champions League.
“The feeling is that we had good opportunities in the first half, it should have remained balanced. I am angry and sad, because we are coming out of the Champions League. But we have to think about the championship now. Saturday in Lecce, we must try to win. The first part of the season is clearly not good because we are coming out of the Champions League and we are a little behind in the league. We have to make an effort, keep working. And on Wednesday (next week, editor’s note) against Paris-SG, in the last match, we will have the opportunity at least to try to go to the Europa League. You have to recover physical and mental energy.”
The Italian technician once again spoke at a press conference: “This defeat, in reality, it will be an opportunity to return to the league. Of course we are angry because we are eliminated from the Champions League but it is part of our path to grow. We must continue this work, the players have shown energy, willpower.
