Max Allegri rubbishes doubts over his future at Juventus

Following a 1-1 Europa League draw against Nantes on Thursday, reports emerged that Allegri's job at Juve is at risk as the club is trying to handle a 15-point deduction in Serie A as he was booed by fans following the game.

However, ahead of Juventus' Sunday Serie A travel to Spezia, Max Allegri insists he's not nervous about his future at the club. He told his press conference: "

I'm not nervous. Something happened with someone booing the players for no reason.

"The other night it was perhaps the wrong reaction, and I can accept criticism for many things, but there is one thing, we shouldn't talk about facts. There's no arguing about that.

"I accept that they say that I'm a poor coach and my teams suck because that's part of the criticism. But there's no arguing about the numbers."

Despite leading Juve to five successive Serie A titles between 2014 and 2019, Allegri was at the helm during the Bianconeri's first trophyless campaign since 2010-11 last season.

"We don't need understanding,"

he said.

"We have to try to do our best. We have to make an important climb in the league, it's important for us to score a certain amount of points regardless of what happens outside.

"It's a pity, the Europa, but it's proof that there aren't any easy games in Europe and so we'll have to go to Nantes and try to play a game that will allow us to go through, and we have the chance.

"Then we have the semi-final of the Coppa Italia and we'll see there too."
