Allegri announces the absence of the South American players for the Juventus match against Napoli

Juventus coach Massimo Allegri confirmed the absence of the South American players from the Napoli match, scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, at the “Diego Armando Maradona” stadium.

This is among the matches of the third round of the Italian League for the current season 2021-2022.

Speaking at the match press conference, Allegri said:

“Juventus’ goals are to always be competitive in all competitions in March, then we have to improve and we have to grow above all as a team and the results definitely help with that, we have to be good at that regardless of our results.”

He continued:

“We arrived calmly but there is no need to rush, there are many matches, we have to focus on each one at a time but in the meantime let’s think about tomorrow.”

On the shape of the match he expects against Napoli, Allegri said:

“It will be a good match for sure because we are facing a technically strong team and in a good moment. Tomorrow it will not be difficult to choose the formation because I have few options. I chose to leave the South American players in Turin.”

He continued:

“Tomorrow we will play without a lot of players, we will leave the South American players, that is the calendar and we have to accept it, we only have 13-14 players plus three boys, the players who played tonight arrive in Italy on Saturday morning, and their presence in Napoli puts them at risk of injury, and this is not Logical”.

He continued:

“They will stay at home and rest, on Tuesday we have an important match because it is the first match in the Champions League and it is the most important in the group. What we do if we all express our opinion, there will be chaos, we have to accept what they tell us.”

And about goalkeeper Chesney, he said:

“Cesney, apart from the Udinese match, he performed very well against Empoli, he is the main goalkeeper also, and Perin is a good goalkeeper.”

And about Moise Kean, he said:

“I found Kane well, he is young and he performed well in Paris Saint-Germain, we wanted that and he would arrive regardless of Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure.”

And if Ronaldo’s departure put him in trouble, Allegri indicated: “Cristiano no longer wants to play for Juventus, he left and anyway it would have been his last year. than it was.”

He added:

“As long as Juventus wins as a group and has that in its DNA, to be able to compete and try to win, we must have big ambitions, great self-love and above all passion for what we do.”

And about the whistles in the Empoli match, he said:

“It’s normal, they certainly won’t be able to applaud us after the home defeat… After the first 60 minutes in Udinese everything seemed to be going well, but then everything turned upside down.”

He concluded:

“Napoli is one of the favorites to win the Scudetto, but the tournament is still long, we have to think about match by match, there are many games and time to recover. There is no need to rush.”

Juventus occupies the twelfth place in the Italian league standings with one point from two matches.

While Napoli is in fifth place with 6 points, with a goal difference from leaders Lazio.
