Juventus director Nedved welcomes back Allegri; admits 'Sarri is right'

Juventus director Pavel Nedved has welcomed the return of coach Max Allegri for the new season.

Nedved also paid tribute to former coach Maurizio Sarri, now in charge of Lazio, admitting his work wasn't appreciated enough two seasons ago.

“We had spent five seasons together before he went on holiday for a couple of years, but now he is back with great motivation," Nedved said of Allegri.

Sarri had hit out at his former club saying players didn't celebrate their title enough when he was in charge in 2019-20.

“I am really happy of his work with us," ensured Nedved.

“We had a good time with him, but in the end, we decided to part ways. These are normal assessments at the end of a season.

“Sarri is right when he says we didn't celebrate enough. We had won a lot and we felt burned out, we tried again with Andrea Pirlo, but we ended in fourth. We celebrated that achievement after a long season and after winning the Coppa Italia."
