"I never regret my choices, when they are made at that moment they are right,"

the Juve coach told Sky Sport Italia.

"I am very happy to be at Juventus, in life there are always difficulties that help you grow, I am happy to be part of this club and I have no regrets.

"When I make choices I am convinced of them, of course, I don't have a crystal ball. We are making young people develop and there are the foundations for a good future."

Allegri insisted that he wants to focus only on football and does not want to be distracted by the off-field controversies.

Allegri said.

"It was important to get a result and we hope to win again on Sunday [at home to Monza]. It's not easy to find yourself tenth in the standings, but everything is still open.

"The team scored 38 points, it's Napoli who are flying at a difficult level to reach. We have a group that has pride and responsibility, we are Juve and we must bring the most glorious team in Italy to the top.

"We need a little madness and recklessness, perhaps hoping that the others will start to lose. It's all still to play for."
