Tardelli: Juventus fans realising Allegri was that bad

Italy World Cup winner Marco Tardelli believes Juventus are missing Massimiliano Allegri.

Allegri was pushed out of the club at the end of last season and with Juve now battling to maintain their title defence, Tardelli says Bianconeri fans are realising how important their old coach was.

"He was never so loved by fans, a winning culture always, a CV to make anyone envious, but there is always a 'but' or a 'though'," said Tardelli.

"He wins with Milan, he wins a lot with Juventus, reaching two Champions League finals, and at this moment he's out of our league. Now the fans realise that maybe he wasn't that bad."
