Allegri praises impact sub Di Maria in tough win against Spezia

Juventus boss Max Allegri hailed world champion Angel Di Maria for coming on to help Juve secure a win.

Max Allegri thinks it is a privilege to work with a World Cup winner like Angel Di Maria. The Argentine came on to score a second for Juventus, helping the Old Lady get the three points.

Despite lack of game time,

Di Maria

has had 10 direct goal involvements so far this season (6 assists and 4 goals). Which means that the Argentine has contributed to a goal every 97 minutes.

"I've always been lucky because in the teams I've coached I've been stuffed with champions. Di Maria is one of them,"

Allegri said of the forward, who signed a one-year deal ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.

"The bad luck is that he's 35, I would have liked him younger so he could play all the matches. He came in and did extraordinary things."

Allegri wasn’t impressed with


’s win though, as they had to work not to concede.

Football is strange: on Thursday we slip once and draw, today maybe you concede a goal on 1-0 and who knows,"

he continued.

"Football is this, there are games you deserve to win and you don't win, and you win others in which you deserve less. It is hard to explain."

He added:

"Playing here is always complicated. Spezia always creates something because they have quality. I think they have an excellent chance of saving themselves."+
