Juventus coach Max Allegri said he’s ‘human’ when defending his behaviour after the 1-1 draw with Milan on Sunday. ‘I expect seriousness from those who enter’.
The Old Lady coach stormed off the pitch swearing and yelling at his players, as he was unhappy with his players’ attitude and didn’t manage to hide his disappointment.
During the press conference ahead of the fifth Serie A game of the season against Spezia on Wednesday, the coach explained his reaction.
“Talking about the past doesn’t make sense,” Allegri said. “It’s been seven years, and two since I last was at Juventus. This is a different team from the one I had.
“I’m human too and I have outbursts too. Since they have been playing two years in a row, without interruptions, those who go on the bench must be decisive in their approach.
“We can’t think of playing in 10, it’s always the case: before we had 14, now it’s 16. I demand respect from those who start and those on the bench and vice versa.
“It’s a sense of respect and responsibility.”
