Juventus coach Allegri praises 2-goal Morata after victory at Sampdoria

Juventus coach Max Allegri praised Alvaro Morata after victory over Sampdoria.

Morata struck twice for the 3-1 win in Genoa.

"Alvaro is one of the best forwards on a technical level in Europe. He will struggle more if you use him with his back to goal. If he plays a little wider, with the space to run inside and use his characteristics, he's excellent," Allegri told DAZN.

“The team did well on a technical level today. We need to improve when we're in control of the match, lower the tempo and then speed it up with a vertical pass to close it. We need to understand when it's time to be patient and wait a moment.

Sampdoria are not an easy team to face, we needed this result to consolidate fourth place and prepare for Villarreal in the best way."

Moise Kean started instead of Dusan Vlahovic and Allegri added, “Kean did well, he earned the penalty, sparked the move for the first goal, so he is an important player for this squad. Naturally, he is young and still needs to improve, especially his touch and control, but can be devastating when he has space to run into."
