    Massimiliano Allegri praises his side’s performance after Saturday’s 2-0 win over Atalanta at Juventus Stadium

    A positive result and performance for the Bianconeri had their manager satisfied with a job well done following Saturday’s 2-0 home win over Atalanta.

    Speaking after the final whistle, Massimiliano Allegri began: “The boys have put in a strong display, we’ve kept another clean sheet and created plenty of goalscoring opportunities while playing some very good football at times.

    “My only criticism would be that towards the end, when they were down to ten men, we should have kept possession ticking over better and save energy.”

    Paulo Dybala put in a fine display, scoring the first goal of the afternoon before providing the assist to Mario Mandzukic’s second-half strike, leaving Allegri praising the Argentine, whilst defending his own approach to nurturing emerging talents throughout his career.

    “I liked Paulo’s positional sense and also Pereyra’s when he was on the pitch. It was different for him (Dybala) at Palermo, where he was a leader and played as a centre-forward. Here he needs to adapt to a different position and get used to the physical aspects of the game.

    “I believe in what I do and I’ve always been one to get the best out of young players from my time at Cagliari right through to the present day at Juventus.”

    Down the other end of the pitch, the Bianconeri did not concede for a third straight match in all competitions and Allegri pointed out the team effort behind this positive defensive run of form.

    “We’ve come on a lot physically. The boys are working well as a unit and if you do that you can cause the opposition problems and keep clean sheets.”

    Meanwhile, the Tuscan tactician insisted Paul Pogba’s penalty miss was not something to lose any sleep over.

    “It’s not a problem to miss from the spot. Whoever doesn’t step up to take it isn’t at fault. Paul is developing but there’s room to do even better.”
