Allegri: I almost resigned
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri admitted he had thought to resign after his squad had suffered a defeat by Real Madrid in the Champions League.
“When I saw an arch kick from Mario Mandzukic over Real Madrid goalkeeper, I thought, ‘Wow … maybe’,” Allegri wrote.
“We have a lot of special players. Unfortunately Real Madrid has it more. In the second half the team had two players who could barely stand by injury, and then Blancos played a very smart game. They are relaxed and comfortable. ”
“To reach the final, you need talent and luck. And should be a better team. ”
“I left Cardiff with the team and returned to Italy. The next night when I got home, I asked myself a very difficult question: Is this the end of my career? ”
“I was wondering if I should write the final chapter for my story at Juventus. Part of me is thinking of walking away. ”
“So that night, before going to bed, I decided that if the club suits my strategy and we can stay together, then I will survive.”
“The next morning my head was clear. I went to the office at 7 am and enjoyed an espresso. It’s a new season, with new opportunities. ”
“For me, seeing Paulo Dybala and Gigi Buffon on one side, they are the symbol of this team.”
