      Massimiliano Allegri discusses a range of hot topics when meeting the media following this evening’s 1-1 draw with the Rossoblu

      Massimiliano Allegri covered a host of topics in his post-match interview following this evening’s 1-1 draw against Cagliari, from the ovation received by his Scudetto champions to Paul Pogba’s condition ahead of Wednesday’s decisive Champions League semi-final second leg with Real Madrid.

      Here is a summary of his thoughts:

      Juventus Stadium reception

      “It was a special day and it was inevitable I’d feel a bit emotional as well, I’m certainly not made of iron! The Scudetto is an important achievement for me, marking my second with two different clubs.”

      Final outcome

      “It’s a pity we didn’t win the game but the lads did well. It wasn’t easy, seeing as certain players hadn’t featured for a while. Maintaining our unbeaten league record on home soil was equally important.”

      Pogba’s return

      “Paul put in a decent display and is in good physical condition. It was important for him to regain his judgement of distances in the middle of the park.”

      Real Madrid

      “I won’t know my starting line-up right until the last minute. We know it will be a very difficult game in Madrid and a different one entirely, a more attacking affair. We passed up four or five decent chances in the first leg, we’ll have to put them away at the Bernabeu if we want to go through.”
