Ferguson is surprised by Serie A's continued struggles in Europe.
“I can't remember, in the 50 years of my career, such big eliminations of Italian clubs," Ferguson said at the UEFA Coaches Forum in Nyon, as reported by Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Football goes in cycles, and at the moment Barcelona and Real Madrid have something extra. I think that Juventus though, like Bayern [Munich] are a team who can beat anyone and so they could even win the Champions League.
“Allegri? He's one of Juventus' strong points. He's a great Coach. Another important thing is the stadium, it's really nice and that's a rarity in Italy."
