The words of Massimiliano Allegri

Massimiliano Allegri is not entirely satisfied with the 4-2 win at Sampdoria. “I think we need to improve the management of the game. On 2-0 we cannot play in the open field. We must not concede but go on the counterattack and close the spaces. The older ones in the defense had to take the younger ones by the ears and put them back in their positions.”

“Vlahovic? Dusan had a very good game, he has to stay calm. He has to remain calm, he sometimes goes off the rails as energy management. When he is less hasty and meaner in attacking the goal, the goal will also come.”

Closing remark on Rabiot: “He is a beautiful player to watch play, he has a different engine from the others. Today my prediction was to let him play 60 minutes and then bring in Pogba. Paul will not play with Freiburg, Chiesa we’ll see. Di Maria? He hasn’t done anything these days, from Tuesday I think he will return to work with the team to be available on Thursday.”
