's recent poor performance.

Allegri's side were held to a 0-0 draw by


last time out, a game in which Vlahovic had just nine touches and failed to live up to expectations. Since David Trezeguet, who had just eight touches against Catania in 2008, there has been no player in Serie A who has had a poorer 90-minute total than Vlahovic.

The Serbian star has scored 26 goals in 38 Serie A games since the start of last season, but has scored just nine goals since his move to Juve in January. His statistics in Fiorentina averaged one goal every 109 minutes, which in Bianconeri reached every 139 minutes. However, Allegri is not worried about the forward situation.

He said:

"If he touched a ball and scored a goal, I'd be happy,. We had a bad first half with Sampdoria. 

"The games last 95 minutes, I got angry because in the second half the game had to be grasped. They were in trouble, we had opportunities that we didn't take advantage of. 

"It is normal that the performance of the first half should be improved, but there were also the merits of Sampdoria who closed the spaces and made the defenders play a lot.

"Last year we laid the foundations to go back to winning. We will try to do it, we will also see the market as it ends. The fun for me is winning and to do it you have to go through difficult moments. 

"It takes a little patience. That's why the other day, after the first half you had to stay calm because you could only improve."
