’s move back to

Massimiliano Allegri

would have had more time to replace the five-time Ballon d’Or winner if he had left sooner than the 28th of August.

I learned one thing,”

Allegri told



“The things that are said and the things that are done are interpreted by everyone.

“I believe that Chiellini said positive things about Cristiano, an extraordinary player who it was an honour to coach, and I have coached many champions.

“It’s normal that on August 28, three days before the end of the transfer market, you don’t have the possibility to replace him. The club did well to get Kean, a player who scored important goals and I’m happy.

“It he had left a month earlier, perhaps the club would have had the opportunity to work in a different way. It’s just a question of the market, it hasn’t created any problems.”

‘knows very well what needs to be done’.

I’m already struggling to be a coach, the President is on the front line, and he knows very well what needs to be done,”

Allegri added.

“I believe that to improve football and the quality, important decisions must be made.”

The Juve boss thinks


are the favorites to win the title this season, notwithstanding Napoli and Milan’s domination after 10 matches. He also talked about his side’s targets in the Champions League and Serie A this season.

Juve cannot set goals, now we only have the passage to the next round in the Champions League,”

he said.

“Indeed, first there’s Verona.

“We must take one game at a time and then see what we are capable of doing, the others think of the rest.

“I believe that Inter remain favourites, but Milan and Napoli are doing well and have all the credentials to win the championship.

“Then, in football, you never know why you might get a run and close the gap. But it’s all stuff that doesn’t concern us, we only focus on ourselves.”
