Juventus manager Max Allegri has said that his side’s loss against Atalanta was imminent. The reigning Coppa Italia champions were eliminated by Atalanta in their last match at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia by 3-0 to end their campaign for the season. The manager himself was sent to the stands after he failed to keep his calm soon after the second goal was scored.
Speaking about the defeat, the manager said, “They were right to send me off, I was nervous and losing my temper at the time. Compliments to the referee, at that moment I paid for my anger. These situations create more attention for the next game, I’m sorry for De Sciglio, he had done well up until the mistake. Chiellini came out right away, but injuries are part of the game. We had a bad first half on Sunday, then there was a reaction. However, everything went wrong tonight. We gave away the first and third goal.”
He added, “This result was in the air for a while, frankly. We had players coming back from injuries, others who were out. You can recover one or two games from a negative situation, but you’re going to lose eventually. It’s nothing to get dramatic about, as it was just an off day. Atalanta fully deserved to go through and had more verve about them. It’s disappointing for us to go out, but it was mad to think Juventus could’ve won every single match this season. We really gave some goals away tonight.”
