His Juventus side have secured 10 wins from a possible 10 so far this season, but Massimiliano Allegri is not looking so much at the potential records to be broken, but rather focusing on the upcoming commitments which await him and his players.
Talking to journalists on the sidelines of today’s #AGalaxyEvent in Milan, the Tuscan tactician explained: “When Fabio Capello's Milan won 5-4 against my Pescara team, he said that they would not have lost again after winning that game, and that is actually what happened in the end.
"The secret behind their success was that they took each game at a time and that’s what we must do. Straight after this international break, we face Genoa who have just brought in a new coach and it will not be easy.”
After that match against the Rossoblù, the Bianconeri will fly to Manchester for the most demanding and fascinating contest of this period: “I have always had that desire to win the Champions League ever since I first coached in the competition in 2010,” Allegri emphasized.
“We hope that this will be our year. We’ve started well and now we have to keep up the good work. Some players will be available again after the international break: Douglas Costa is ready, Sami Khedira is to be evaluated, and then we will commence this period of fixtures leading up to the end of 2018.”
Finally, Allegri commented on the Italian national team, who yesterday were in action against Ukraine: “They played well and let’s give them time. There are moments when many talented players emerge and others less so, but the work is not to be thrown away.
“We ought to take a few steps back in the training methodology. Let the kids play and let’s not try to turn football into an exact science, because it is not.”
