Massimiliano Allegri says he is happy with the way Juventus have responded to specific sessions designed to improve their sharpness in and around the penalty area.
The team saw their extra work on the training ground bear fruit as they breezed past Parma with a seven-goal triumph this afternoon, and Allegri is confident his “excellent” strikers will continue to terrorise Serie A defences.
Reacting to today’s emphatic win, the 47-year-old began: “Training’s there for a reason and if we get used to hitting the target during the week, we’ll do so on matchdays as well.
“We’ve got an excellent group of strikers, from the ‘older’ players like Tevez and Llorente, to the younger ones like Coman and Morata. We had a couple of issues in the first 15 minutes, but then we broke the deadlock and the lads read the game well. I’m very happy.”
The undisputed highlight of the 7-0 success was Carlos Tevez’s mesmerising second-half solo effort that drew superlatives from his manager.
He added: “Tevez scored an extraordinary goal. It was something he needed because it had been a while since he last scored. He’s an example for the way he trains and he’s celebrated his richly deserved call-up to the Argentina squad in the best possible way.”
