Danilo admits to Juve’s mentality problem amid 1-1 draw with Milan

Mon 20 September 2021 | 4:13

In agreement with his boss Max Allegri, the Brazilian defender believes that Juventus losing points from leading situations is ‘more an issue of mentality than physical fitness’.

A 76th-minute goal from Rebic canceled Alvaro Morata’s early opener to conclude 

the Serie A showdown between Milan and Juventus as a 1-1 draw


Dominating the first-half at San Siro, the Bianconeri risked defeat in Turin during the final minutes as Juve boss Allegri was furious following the Ante Rebic equalizer from a corner.

Danilo told 



“I agree with the coach that we need to be more of a team, because we are struggling not for the performances, but the results. We must be intelligent and realise what caused these results.

“We played well the first half, kept possession, pressed high and did what we prepared during the week. In the second half we had to keep that intensity up, but we conceded an avoidable goal.”


Juve now have bottled 7 points

 in Serie A as they lost their advantage against Udinese, Napoli and Milan, but picked up just two points from four rounds, taking two points from those 4 clashes.

“In my view, it’s more an issue of mentality than physical fitness. At those moments we can’t press or move defensively as a unit, we don’t move the ball around quickly enough and that is certainly something we need to improve,” 




“We have to focus only on our own work and our progress, not what the other teams are doing. If we can play at our level, we can certainly climb up the table.”
