Juventus coach Allegri: We will 'grow' from Empoli shock

Juventus coach Max Allegri says they'll learn from defeat at home to Empoli.

Empoli beat the Old Lady in Turin with a Leonardo Mancuso strike.

“The lads had started strong, they conceded at the first mistake playing out, then got too hasty. We must have the patience to take it calmly, play as a team and not try to resolve things as individuals," Allegri told DAZN.

Juve have just one point from the first two Serie A rounds, having drawn 2-2 at Udinese after taking a 2-0 lead.

“We need to work on our solidity, but these two slip-ups will inevitably do us good. This is a strong squad, it has values and gradually they will emerge.

Empoli leave a lot of spaces on the wings, but the things we really did badly were technical errors, because we were frenetic. We can't assume we will take the lead and control every game, we need the calm that a great team has, knowing we can overturn it.

“A difficult moment helps you to grow, we must try to keep things simple, be united and there were too many players who made mistakes they don't usually make because they were frenetic.

“We realised what we shouldn't do in Udine and learned another valuable lesson this evening. Obviously, we dropped five points, but have to learn from these lessons and use them going forward.

“We've got to slowly find our balance. These players are if anything too generous, they were distraught because they had started well and wanted to win, but we have to learn from these mistakes.

“It takes time, we can't go from 0-10 in one second. The main thing is we can't be frenetic, we need to be patient when attacking and defending, because our haste to get the ball back can create spaces."
