'He will continue as coach' - Agnelli backs Juventus coach Allegri2022-10-12 15:14
Juventus president Andrea Agnelli said on Tuesday he was "ashamed and outraged" by his side's 2-0 loss to Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League but would not consider sacking Allegri.
Juventus has had an unsatisfactory start to the season and coach Allegri is under enormous pressure. In the Champions League, Juventus only accumulated 3 points and recorded a victory after 4 rounds of group matches, which was the first time in team history. The team is currently third in Group H, with qualification for the knockout stage at stake.
Juventus are also struggling in Serie A, currently, they are 8th with 3 wins, 4 draws, 2 losses, and 13 points.
Even so, Agnelli expressed his support for Allegri in public with a tough stance. "Today was a difficult night," he told Sky Sport Italia. "It was one of the most difficult times and a time to take responsibility and that's why I'm here."
"I'm ashamed and angry at what's going on, but I know football is an 11-man team sport. We have to start all over again."
"In this case, it's not a single person's problem, it's not just a player, physiotherapist, doctor, or anything else. The problem is the whole team."
"If you can't even win a confrontation on the field, you can't blame the manager. Allegri is still our manager and he's going to stay. We have an 80-90 team and we have to get us back The spirit that brings us to our quality on the pitch. It all depends on our coaches."
Allegri said after the game that he had no intention of resigning as Juventus coach, and vowed to lead the team back on the right track as soon as possible, "I never thought about resigning. When the challenge becomes more difficult, things will become more and more difficult. It's fun, we have to have courage and desire."
"We must remain silent and get out of the current predicament. Next, the team will have a closed training session, starting tomorrow until the Turin derby at the weekend. What we are currently facing is not a technical and tactical problem, but a lack of confidence and passion. It's too individual and we have to be a team again."
