Juve, Allegri and Szczesny’s criticisms: “He doesn’t know Italian well”

The coach dismisses the considerations of the Polish goalkeeper

“Szczesny? He doesn’t know Italian well…”. Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus coach, thus dismisses the considerations that Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny expressed on Thursday, immediately after Juve’s elimination in Seville in the semi-final of the Europa League. “After the goal we ducked too much, we had a negative attitude. Our opponents created a lot, they deserved the result. We, honestly, didn’t deserve…” said Szczesny after the 2-1 defeat at the additional. Juve, ahead 1-0 in the 70th minute, didn’t shine for their aggressiveness in the last 20 minutes of regulation time and in extra time.

“After the match you should always keep quiet, in the heat you can say inaccurate things. The team in Seville did everything they could in the best way, we were inaccurate in attack and conceded a goal that could have been avoided if we had defended better: things that they can happen. Szczesny? I don’t know the exact words he said. Maybe, not knowing Italian well, he made a mistake in the use of terms, “said Allegri in the press conference on the eve of the match against Empoli. The coach’s words rebounded on social media, where the vast majority of Juventus fans seem to side with Szczesny. In the meantime, Allegri reiterated his intention to remain on the Juventus bench given the contract valid until 2025: “I can only say what my choice is: I remain 100%, I don’t decide for the others. The club and the managers will make their assessments, as is normal”.
