Juventus vice-president Nedved: Allegri needs time

Juventus vice-president Pavel Nedved has defended coach Max Allegri.

Juve are reeling after consecutive defeats to Sassuolo and Hellas Verona.

Nedved reasoned: “Allegri needs time. It's true he has the advantage of knowing Juventus and what to expect here, but he also has to get to know the players who weren't here the last time he was in charge. He's still getting to understand their characteristics.

“We were on the right track until that defeat to Sassuolo, and one game cannot change what we saw in the seven previous performances."

He added: “I agree we haven't scored many goals, I think 13 in 10 rounds, but there were reasons for that.

“Paulo Dybala was out for a long time, then Alvaro Morata, now Moise Kean. We moved Federico Chiesa into a more advanced role and he got hurt too.

“We're working on it and I do expect more goals."
