Recently, Gianluigi Buffon said that without a European Cup, Juventus Turin had a good chance of going far in the Italian top flight. But Massimiliano Allegri doesn’t think this is systematic. He believes that perception is not reality, and that hard work alone can achieve goals.
“It doesn’t compare with last year. When I say that the first objective is to exceed the quota of 38, it’s because last year we had a good first round with the difficulties we had. Because perception isn’t reality, you have to be very careful, very calm and only think about working, there’s nothing else to do. We’re doing a job where, at the end of the match, we have to take points home, that’s all there is to it. Improving on last year’s points means improving on last year’s ranking. That’s the first objective, then we’ll see. But we won’t know until January 7, because the last game is against Salernitana,” Allegri told a press conference ahead of the match against Napoli.
