Two former Juventus soccer players, Mattijis de Ligt and Denis Zakaria, respectively at Bayern Munich and Chelsea, attacked Massimiliano Allegri's Juventus game, in great crisis at the start of the season. Zakaria told: "I think I'll be better off in England than in Turin.
Maybe Juve's playing style wasn't for me, the team played very short and I didn't have much space. I'm a player who needs a lot of space to run. Maybe in this I will be better in England. Anyway, with that staff, Juventus should win them all 3-0.
Allegri? A coach who has achieved great results, but with whom I didn't talk much."
De Ligt's words and Allegri's issue
De Ligt, on the other hand, said: "I had a lot of fun at Juventus, but I felt it was time for a new challenge.
Juve is certainly a great team, but for me moving to Bayern Munich was a further step forward. I just think that Bayern have the ambition to win the Champions League, while at Juve I felt less of this feeling. When I arrived they had taken players like Higuain and Ronaldo and the situation was different.
After a while the renewal began. and things have changed." In the next few days, the Juventus Board is scheduled to approve the balance sheet for the 2021/22 season. The meeting of the Bianconeri's upper echelons will also have to evaluate the performance of Allegri's team and decide how to manage this start of the season which is clearly below expectations.
The eventual exemption of the Tuscan coach was judged madness by the managing director Maurizio Arrivabene. It remains to be seen whether this is an exclusively technical reasoning, because we want to give confidence and continuity to the project started in the summer of 2021, or whether to weigh in this position is above all the hiring of Allegri, armored until 2025. from a 7 million contract plus bonuses per season.
