Allegri Confident of Success Once Again in the Italian Serie A

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri claimed that he is feeling confident about the title chances of his team in the 2016-17 season.


The five-time consecutive Italian champions started their defence of the title with a 2-1 win over Fiorentina. This victory was especially important since the club was entering into a new era. They were without midfielder Paul Pogba, who has been instrumental in the last four title successes. The midfielder was sold for a world record transfer fee of £ 89 million and the club spent most of this fee in bringing Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain.

The Argentine striker showed why he is one of the highly rated forwards in world football. It took him just 75 minutes to open the account for his new club.

The player has been part of the Euro 2016 this year, but he feels that his role is no longer with the team.

He is considered a veteran playmaker, but like all footballers, everyone needs to decide when their role has come to an end and when to exit an active playing career from the field. Again, playing for a club is different from playing for a national level team. Andrea has realized this when he was picked to play for Italy. The dynamics are different as most players come in from different clubs as opposed to being part of a football club altogether, even though many might come from other clubs as well.
