      Massimiliano Allegri calls on his men to end the season in style beginning with tomorrow’s Coppa Italia final clash with Lazio

      LAZIO, CROTONE...CARDIFF

      “A 20-day mini-season kicks off tomorrow with the Coppa Italia final then our home match against Crotone and it ends in Cardiff with the Champions League final.

      “It’s time to step up and start reaping what we have sown. Lazio have had a brilliant calendar year and I have no doubt that their coach Inzaghi will go on to do great things as a manager. They have an excellent squad and we will need to play very well indeed to beat them."

      LESSONS FROM SUNDAY

      “I thought tactically we were very good against Roma in the first half but we lacked the required cutting edge to shut the door on them early on.

      “The small details cost us: we conceded from a set-piece and then left ourselves too open after our own offensive free-kick. How you manage those moments will always be the difference between winning and losing."

      TIME TO BOUNCE BACK

      “What matters now is how we recover. What I can guarantee is that you won’t see the same performance again tomorrow night. Whoever takes to the field will play with absolute focus."

      TEAM NEWS 

      “I will make a final call on Mandzukic and Dybala after training but apart from that there are no new injury concerns. The eleven I send out there will have the quality and determination to win the cup for us.

      "Rincon is an important player in this squad; he is extremely reliable and if he plays, I have no doubt that he will deliver.”
