On the eve of his fourth Coppa Italia final in four years as Juventus manager, Massimiliano Allegri spoke to the media at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
“Winning the Cup would be another great page in the story of Juventus. We must play with great enthusiasm coming from tough matches against Milan and Bologna because, as Gigi rightly said, games against Milan are always tightly balanced and in a Final even more.
“We will face a team that can give us trouble from set pieces with very technical players so we will have to be very focused and balanced. Tomorrow I expect the boys to give the fans, organization and me another great evening.”
“Two out of Barzagli, Benatia and Rugani will start at center back…Manduzkic, De Sciglio and Sturaro were all back in training and everyone is available except for Chiellini and Howedes.
ON THE OTHER SIDE
“[Gattuso] is a football guy who you could see always wanted to be a coach. It’s not easy to sit on the Milan bench and he’s done very well getting good results."
