Juventus boss admits to good fortune after Coppa Italia triumph
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri believes that his side found the necessary luck in order to achieve Coppa Italia glory on Saturday evening.
The Bianconeri defeated AC Milan 1-0 to lift the TIM Cup, courtesy of an Alvaro Morata strike deep into extra time, and the coach is relieved that events went the Old Lady’s way on Saturday.
“To win a cup a team must be good and lucky, but I must complement my players,” Allegri told Rai Sport immediately following the match.
“This was not an simple feat as for the past month we have trained with a drop in intensity.
“I had a decision to make; either take the match to penalties or go for the win, I chose the second option and perhaps got lucky.”
After another successful season that has seen Juventus the domestic double for a record second consecutive season, Allegri touched on the club’s objectives for next season.
“Juventus are a club that always want to win every competition,” the 48-year old noted.
“As such, next season we will aim to win our sixth consecutive title and above all, make a push for the Champions League.”
