Allegri: ‘Enough celebrating now!’
Max Allegri was angry with Juventus after their defeat to Verona, ending a six-month unbeaten run. “Enough celebrating.”
Hellas are already relegated, but emerged 2-1 winners at the Bentegodi on the night Luca Toni hung up his boots.
“No, this defeat is not acceptable and it shouldn’t have been on the cards except for our attitude,” complained the Coach on Mediaset Premium.
“Verona did very well and played an intense game, but we were not intense. We’ve got to take the positives from this, because we must get our heads where they need to be.
“It wasn’t a lack of hunger, it was a lack of concentration and focus. We made many technical errors, gave the ball away often and weren’t cohesive.
“It’s a shame to have lost after 26 rounds, as we wanted to end the season on a high. We must win against Sampdoria on Saturday, then we’ve got the Coppa Italia Final with Milan.
“A slip-up is only valuable if it makes the team learn from its mistakes. Maybe we celebrated too much. Enough celebrating now. We’ve got to get our heads in the game, otherwise we risk going into the Final without the right attitude.
“Last Sunday against Carpi we were close to a defeat, today we managed it, but at least it’ll wake us up. Verona had a lot of determination and we didn’t so, it’s only natural we lost.
“We could’ve done better, that’s for sure. It wasn’t the best Paulo Dybala either, as he’s lost some match fitness after missing the last game and gave the ball away too many times.”
