Juventus coach Allegri left floored after Inter Milan Supercoppa defeat

Juventus coach Max Allegri admits he was left floored by their Supercoppa defeat to Inter Milan last night.

Weston McKennie had Juventus ahead before Lautaro Martinez equalised via the penalty spot. Alexis Sanchez swooped for the winner in injury time.

Allegri said, “A defeat five seconds from the end hurts, but we need to use that anger for Serie A, the Coppa Italia and the Champions League.

“We need to look at the positives, the team is improving, especially physically. It was a one-off game, it didn’t go the way we wanted, so now we focus on the league.

“This is proof there is a unified approach from everyone. Despite the final error, we saw Alex Sandro return to his usual level, while Daniele Rugani did well again in defence after the Roma game.”

He also said: “I congratulated the lads on the performance, as it was not easy. When you lose a game like that, especially a trophy, five seconds from the end and have to watch the opposition celebrate, that’s going to hurt. We need to use that going forward.”
