Massimiliano Allegri wants to see Juve stay focused

Massimiliano AllegriMassimiliano Allegri would like to see his Juventus side stay fully focused when they take on Napoli at the Supercoppa before the break gets underway, and pay per head bookmaking companies believe that the coach should have no problems whatsoever in helping his side stay completely concentrated – especially with big games ahead.

On Monday, the champions of the Serie A, who are currently leading the league and are huge favourites with many fans all over the world, will take on the winners the Coppa Italia in Doha. The manager is very eager to see his side clinch their first trophy since he took Antonio Conte’s place.

Juve were able to win the last two Supercoppas that they played, while 2011 was the last time that the coach won the competition when he was working with Milan, his past club.

Hiving been able to lead his new players to the top and advance in Europe, the coach wants to see his side win a cup to finish his very nice first six months that he spent there.

“After remaining top of the league and getting to the Champions League last 16, the Super Cup is our third target of the season,” said the coach.

“It won’t be easy because Napoli have important qualities. They’re difficult to face in a one-off game.

“We can’t put a foot wrong. The team is in good shape and got back to winning ways with a good display in Cagliari [a 3-1 win].

“Anything can happen in a final. We have plenty of respect for Napoli and we’ll look to bring the trophy home.”

The manager also stressed that the fate of the team does not depend on Carlos Tevez, even though this season the striker was able to score 13 times in all matches so far.

Allegri then said: “We don’t just rely on Carlos Tevez, we’ve won games without him and the goals have been shared around this season.”

The initial two matches that Juve is set to play when the winter break comes to an end will be to Inter at home and to Napoli away.

Juventus fans all over the world and pay per head bookmaking companies can’t wait to see how the team will continue to perform, and many are confident that they should have no problems at all keeping their focus in the game.
