Juventus midfielder Matuidi eager for Allegri to stay

Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi is eager to see coach Max Allegri carry on.

The future of Allegri remains clouded, despite him insisting he expects to remain in charge.

Matuidi told La Stampa: “We had a good first half against Roma and needed to score.

“Allegri's done a great job here and I hope he stays: he's shown great quality and he's a great Coach.

“We have to think about playing and having a good game on Sunday night at the Stadium against Atalanta to celebrate the Scudetto.

“We'd like to give a good impression of ourselves because we have to finish well so we can celebrate the Scudetto in front of our fans.

“I'm happy at Juve, I feel at home and I have no problems. I'm staying 100 percent and Raiola will take care of my renewal: he knows more than anyone."
