Massimiliano Allegri responds sharply to critics

At the end of the match won against Udinese, Massimiliano Allegri addressed the press conference, “We knew the difficulty of the match: Udinese is technically strong and has a good organization. I think it was a balanced match, we didn’t risk too much. We could have scored sooner, but then we did it at the end and that’s okay.”

Someone criticized the coach because 5 of the last 8 victories were won with the 1-0 result. Allegri responded sharply, “I believe that if you don’t take goals at worst you draw. The players with a different attitude were good, though. The credit belongs to the whole team, those who play and those who don’t.”

In the next round the Bianconeri will face Napoli: “It will be a beautiful and important match in a full stadium. We have to take one step at a time, today it was very important to win and it was not at all obvious. The 3 points obtained consolidate our position in the top four in the standings, which is an important goal on a sporting and economic level for the club. Napoli is traveling at a hellish pace, we can and must do our job with a very low profile, without triumphalism. Seasons are decided in the last two months.”
