Dengeki World Eleven Paris Saint-Germain: Christophe Galtier’s first press conference wraps up
With an ambitious transfer window and the arrival of Bremer, Paul Pogba and even Angel Di Maria, Juventus Turin have only one goal in mind for the new season: to retake the Serie A title. But in Sassuolo on Monday 15 August the week before the resumed championship and reception, the old lady badly ended her preparations. Yesterday, Torino was slapped in the face in a friendly against Atletico Madrid: a 4-0 defeat, not least the hat-trick of Alvaro Morata, who was on loan at Juventus Turin last season. The result forced Massimiliano Allegri to rebuild his squad in a traditional post-match press conference.
‘We definitely need to improve’
“We have to understand that to win some games, you need other things. If we analyze the games well, there is nothing superfluous. But on the 15th, with three points, the attitude will be different. We are still tired of the trip to America. We work a lot, but we also have to learn from this type of team. We definitely need to improve. If I’m worried? We need to pay attention. We need to be meaner. First said: “Atletico are one of the strongest teams in Europe with a huge squad and it shows we are tired of this game. We have to take the positives from these games and that’s for us A lesson because we still have a week to prepare as best we can for the start of the championship, especially mentally.”
Massimiliano Allegri took the opportunity to restructure his squad in the final friendly of the pre-season, which saw Atletico Madrid spend four games at Juventus Turin. He also wanted to appease, pointing to the fatigue of preparations.
