Allegri delighted as Juventus thump Lazio

Juventus coach Max Allegri was delighted after their 3-0 defeat of Lazio.

Moise Kean struck twice, with Arek Milik also scoring for the win.

Allegri said, “The lads did well, especially after a tough month. It was not easy against Lazio, we had the patience to close their passing channels, allowing them practically nothing until the final minutes.

“We raised the technical quality of the squad when introducing players like Di Maria, Chiesa and Paredes once Lazio had run out of steam and we controlled the ball well.

“We have too many players with question marks over them and now we have the opportunity to get them back fully fit, for example Chiesa and Paul Pogba. We needed this break to have a breather.

“I think when we do resume, there will be a game every three days, we will try to go all the way in the Europa League and there will be space for everyone to give their contribution.

“Substitutions become decisive now too, as the final 30 minutes become a different game.”

On Kean, Allegri added: “He is far more balanced mentally, as when you are young and he is so exuberant, it all gets a bit much. He is working hard, he weighs 5-6kg less than last season and you can see he has a different mental approach.”
