Allegri slams pitch as Juventus shocked by Genoa

Juventus coach Max Allegri was left frustrated after their 1-0 defeat to Genoa.Luca Antonini snatched the winner in injury-time.

"We played on a simply awful pitch. You cannot play football on that field. Secondly, the only thing my team got was in the final 20 seconds," said Allegri.

"I have said before that Scudetti are also earned with draws. We fought hard and tried everything to win, but we can't concede right at the death. To win the title you don't need 108 points, but just one more than the team in second place.

"Do everything to win, but if you hit the woodwork, see some great saves and are 30 seconds from the end, try not to lose.

"We leave here with regrets, as we were six against two on that counter and conceded a goal. That has to make us think and improve in terms of maturity."
