Allegri Praises Bianconeri Starlet Miretti Following Roma Stalemate

Despite Juventus being held to a 1-1 stalemate at the Allianz against Roma, Alegri pulled out quite a few positives from the fixture.

Following the Bianconeri’s display against the Capital club, the Tuscan tactician spoke about his side’s performance and how he was quite pleased with the result within the vital fixture in a post match interview with DAZN Italia:

“It is a long season, we even risked losing it on another corner towards the end” Juve played well on a technical level, but we must still improve. Roma were more defensive on their right in the second half and we should’ve put more crosses in with Weston McKennie on our left.

“I am happy with what the lads did, it was a good game, Roma are a great team and Jose is always good at keeping his side focused.It is unfortunate that Roma scored on the only corner they put to the back post, but that’s football. It was a strong performance.

“We were inevitably tired after such a strong first half. We should’ve passed it around and slow down the game, it’s something we need to learn. You cannot expect a team to dominate for 90 minutes.”

In addition,  the gaffer heaped some praise for the young Italian prospect Fabio Miretti as demonstrated a high quality of class and technique at only the age of 19 in a high-profile fixture:

“Miretti played like a veteran, he is very calm, knows how to escape marking and his first touch is always aimed at going forward. You don’t see many like him.”
