Allegri inspired Juventus with his words - Chiellini

Tue 30 November 2021 | 22:36

The Italy international talked about Max Allegri’s comments, which persuaded him and the Bianconeri in their battle against Salernitana. ‘This club gave us so much, it’s time to give back.’

Juventus

have been enduring a tough time as they were defeated at the hands of

Chelsea

and

Atalanta

, with an investigation into inflated transfer fees added into the equation.

The Bianconeri turned things around with the pressure they were facing and won 2-0 courtesy of goals from

Paulo Dybala

and

Alvaro Morata

.

It was a good performance, but the coach used the right words yesterday and today to let us realise what we need to do,”

Giorgio Chiellini

told

DAZN

.

“We need a sense of responsibility, don’t do anything extraordinary, just do it with the right mentality. We played with the right respect and humility, which we couldn’t avoid in our current position, and we prepare for the next match.

“We played it clean today, it doesn’t always work, but we managed it this evening. We knew it would be difficult once Salernitana were playing under their Curva with the fans so passionate, but we held out.”

The 37-year-old found the target and was celebrating with his teammates when Moise Kean’s offside position disallowed it.

“There are moments in life. I was really impressed with the words of the coach. Juventus have given so much to me and all my teammates, so this is the time to give back. We must all stay close to this club and together we’ll get out of this situation.

“The club gave us all so much and it is the time to give back.”

Chiellini was quizzed whether he had made fun of Leonardo Bonucci as he finished above him in the ranking for the Ballon d’Or.

“At 37 years old it’s a recognition that is pleasing, but that’s it. I still have many little objectives to reach and I hope to achieve them. The first is winning on Sunday, because we’ve got it wrong many times this season in games that ought to be on our level.

“At least after this game I can drink a glass of wine and feel happy.”
