Juventus coach Allegri happy after victory over Hellas Verona: Where Vlahovic will improve...

Juventus coach Max Allegri was delighted with their defeat of Hellas Verona.

Dusan Vlahovic and fellow debutant Denis Zakaria struck in the 2-0 win.

“They did well and were lucky. It was a tough game, as Verona run hard, we took the right approach and the forwards worked hard, while we created chances, showed quality and are happy with the performance," Allegri told DAZN.

“Having said that, it's important we stay focused, keep our feet on the ground, because there's a long road ahead of us. Verona made it really difficult with their challenges and duels, but we had such enthusiasm, it would've been a pity not to mark it with a victory."

He added: "Vlahovic had a couple of poor initial first touches at the start, which he needs to improve so it'll be cleaner in his movement. He loves being in the battle, but he's only 22, he doesn't have that much experience.

“He needs to improve the way he shakes off defenders, including on his right foot.

"Zakaria is a smart guy, he dived straight in there and did well."
