Allegri : "I want to continue at Juventus."
Massimiliano Allegri confirms that he has no intentions of a move away from Juventus for now, as he is happy in Italy. Rumoured to be the next Arsenal Manager, Allegri expressed his thoughts on his future while speaking to the media following Juve’s 5-4 aggregate win over Napoli on Wesdnesday.
Allegri answered question regarding a potential summer view in post-match interview as he said –
“My future? I want to continue with Juventus, I feel good here,”
With clouds of doubt gathering around Arsene Wenger’s future, the Italian manager has been linked with Arsenal. He was also was subject of discussion for the FC Barcelona job. A potential move seemed on cards as Allegri enters in last year of his current contract next season. However, Allegri isn’t thinking about his future as the season is at a very crucial stage for Juventus –
“I haven’t spoken to the club yet, as there are other priorities, but then we'll sit down and evaluate things. At the moment, I’m not even thinking about it. I only think about winning as many matches as possible”
Allegri sees the possibilities in near future with the current squad and thinks there are few club as big as Juve in the world –
"This team has great potential, a mixture of experience and youth. Above all Juventus are a top-level club and there are few out there who could be considered better. It's a good result, especially after two very tough games. We played better compared to Sunday [a 1-1 league draw at Napoli], then made life complicated for ourselves with the error [by goalkeeper Neto] for 2-2.”
Allegri also feels that winning the tie would have been better but he is happy for getting into final –
"We didn't have the strength to pile forward anymore and I had no real substitutes left, but overall it was a good performance and we ran a few risks after going 3-2 down. It was a game we could've won, but the objective was to reach the final.”
