Juventus coach Max Allegri raps media after Sevilla stalemate

Juventus coach Max Allegri hit out at the media after their reaction to the 0-0 draw with Champions League opponents Sevilla.

Juve went into the game as clear favourites.

“The performance was good," insisted the Coach. “In the first half we struggled to get the ball back, but their pressing game inevitably fell away after the break.

“The 0-0 is only disappointing because some people were expecting us to win 3-0. In Europe we need to stay calm, as here some are flying from euphoria to depression. Sevilla didn't have a single shot on target.

“Juve haven't won the Champions League for 20 years. We did well on the market, but so did many clubs: it doesn't mean we will win every single game.

“It is crazy to say Juventus are the absolute favourites to win the Champions League. That was never the case.

“Juve had seven chances to score and normally that'd be enough to win, as Sevilla did not have a single shot on target. The team should not feel disappointed with the performance.

“It's the first time I haven't won the opening game of a Champions League group phase, so maybe it'll bring us luck."
