Allegri eyes Juve glory after underwhelming return

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri declared, “We must win the Scudetto” after the Bianconeri failed to win a trophy last season.

Allegri returned to Turin at the start of the 2021-22 campaign and had to settle for fourth in Serie A after a poor start to the season.

Juve could not keep up with Scudetto challengers Milan and Inter.

While Napoli finished in third, nine points clear of the Bianconeri.

Allegri’s side also fell to extra-time defeat in the Coppa Italia final against Inter and crashed out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage to Villarreal.

That marked the first season Juve had not lifted a trophy in 10 years.

And Allegri hopes he has laid the foundations for improvement in the upcoming campaign.

He told reporters:

“As always, we are starting to hit all the seasonal objectives. Significant players have arrived, some experienced and others younger.

“For us, it will be the second year, and this is a good starting point. But, first, we must win the Scudetto, especially after finishing last season without a trophy for the first time in 10 years.”

Juve has closed the Milan, Inter and Napoli gap by bringing in Angel di Maria from Paris Saint-Germain and re-signing Paul Pogba on a free transfer from Manchester United.

Matthijs de Ligt left the Series A side for Bayern Munich this week.

And, after Juve brought in Bremer as his replacement, Allegri hailed the squad he had started to assemble.

He added:

“Pogba and Di Maria are extraordinary. Then we have a young player like [Federico] Gatti and others that I have to evaluate.

“I am thrilled with Bremer’s arrival. He has the characteristics we were looking for and is very physical.

“There aren’t many defenders of that level around, and the club was very good at replacing De Ligt promptly.

“I’m satisfied, but now let’s think about the games because there is less than a month to go until the start of the season.”

Juve begins their pre-season campaign on their tour of the United States against C.D. Guadalajara, and Allegri is intrigued to see how his side fare in their first friendly.

“We worked well for ten days. Now I’m curious to see how we will play in this first test,” he continued.

“For us, it will be an excellent friendly to play; Chivas are a great team even if they are not doing well in the league.

“We know the Mexican league well, our opponents are an organised team, and they have good players. Therefore, it will be the first of three games we will need to prepare for the season in the best possible way.”
