      Massimiliano Allegri praises his side’s efforts during pre-season after Juventus end their tour of Melbourne and Hong Kong with victory over South China

      After watching his charges close the Juventus Jeep Tour 2016 on a high with a 2-1 victory over South China, Massimiliano Allegri ran the rule over the Bianconeri’s performance at Hong Kong Stadium and their pre-season preparations in general and can now look ahead to next Tuesday’s full squad reunion with confidence as plans continue for the new Serie A season.

      Here’s what the Tuscan tactician said following full-time:

      “Today was a good test. These were completely different conditions to our matches in Melbourne. It wasn’t easy playing in this temperature, but the boys dug deep.

      “We’ve now ended the first part of our pre-season preparations without suffering any injuries, which is a good sign. Now we’re looking forward to regrouping on Tuesday, which will well and truly mark the start of our season.

      “This will be an important campaign like every other for this club, because we always aim at achieving all of our objectives. We’ve five new players to bed in to the side, who all have different attributes.

      “We need to show the necessary drive, but also humility, from the off, as we can’t take anything for granted. We paid the price for that during the first two months last term. We’re determined to make sure that doesn’t happen again this time around.

      “It’s important that we put in good groundwork early on so that we can get to March and still be in contention on all three fronts: the Serie A, Champions League and Coppa Italia.”
