Allegri: We need to make Sunday's victory count

Building on the victory at San Siro, not thinking about the table but just the three points, with consistency and patience. These were the main takeouts from Coach Massimiliano Allegri in the press conference on the eve of the match against Hellas Verona.


“Tomorrow's match is a tricky one: it is a more difficult match to prepare for than last Sunday's, Verona have great physical strength and are physically demanding over the 90 minutes. We must make Sunday's victory count by getting a result, otherwise we risk "throwing overboard" what we have achieved. We will have a better chance of winning if we match our opponents, and it is something we must always do, because it is a question of respect, regardless of the team in front of us. We will have our supporters behind us and that will be important, we will need structure, compactness and patience, because what is important is the three points and not the rankings; if anything we have to push those chasing us further away."


“Football is made up of moments, but we need to be realistic, working every day to improve so that this team consolidates its future, all growing together. The objective, clearly, is to be in the top four and play in the Champions League next year, then we will evaluate where we are at the end of the season. The growth of the team is based on balance and daily work, even if it is true that having young players gives enthusiasm and light-heartedness, the group wants to work, everyone plays as a team and puts their personal objectives in the background."


“We're all fine, Federico Chiesa came back and had a good week, so did Dusan Vlahovic. Hans Nicolussi Caviglia is a player who can also play in midfield, but his role is in front of the defence, his time will also come. He knows how to play football very well, but he has to grow in other aspects; Weston McKennie is doing well and can be important tomorrow too. On the left I have a doubt between Andrea Cambiaso and Filip Kostic, and I also have Samuel Iling-Junior who is definitely improving."
