Massimiliano Allegri spoke in the post-match press conference following the 1-1 draw between Ajax and Juventus.
"We could have done better,” he explains “Ajax has important qualities, they bring so many men over the ball and they play well in the passage. We have stretched less than we should have done over the line of their plants. "
He then touched on the goal that occurred immediately after the break: "It created a moment of shock, but then we recovered well,” says the coach. “After that, I fielded more technical players because there was a need to manage the ball.”
But the defensive play was good: “On Rugani I was calm, I knew he would play well, and he had an extraordinary display in defence. However, all four at the back played well, and it was not easy."
Finally, on Cristiano Ronaldo: "Even tonight he proved to be of another category, not only for the goal, but for his playing time".
