    The Bianconeri boss reflects on this evening’s triumph over Chievo: “It’s important we won today, we have a long season ahead and need to be ready for the battles we’ll face”

    Massimiliano Allegri reflected on the importance of Juventus ushering in the new campaign with three points after celebrating his first Serie A victory as the club’s manager tonight in Verona.

    A testing week disrupted by illness and injury drew to a positive conclusion with this evening’s 1-0 win and the Tuscan tactician was quick to express his satisfaction at the way his troops handled the situation.      

    Speaking to reporters in Verona, the 47-year old said: “It was important that we won today, we have a long season ahead and need to be ready for the battles we’ll face every weekend. Today we succeeded even with a few players missing and I’m satisfied with how it turned out.

    “We’ve worked well in a back four but given the way Chievo play and the flu bug that hampered this week’s training, I opted to go with the tried and tested setup.

    “I was a bit worried towards the end because after spurning a few chances which could have put the game to bed, Buffon pulled off an incredible save. But even though we squandered a few chances and could have retained the ball better, I thought we did well overall.”
