Nedved: ‘No problems with Allegri’

Juventus vice-President Pavel Nedved confirms there “shouldn’t be any problems” for Max Allegri’s renewal.

The Coach was linked with an exit earlier this season, with reports that he could replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

In recent weeks, however, the Bianconeri have been indicating that the tactician will remain and the club’s VP confirmed as much after today’s Champions League draw.

“We want him, he’s doing well and at the last draw I made clear that he’s doing good work and we’re happy to continue with him,” Nedved told Mediaset Premium.

“We want to continue with him, and on his part he has to be happy and convinced to continue with Juve. We shouldn’t have any problems.”

The Ballon d’Or winner was then asked about the semi-final tie with Monaco, and Nedved is confident the Old Lady can reach the final.

“We’re facing a young team which runs a lot and has nothing to lose. That’s always difficult, but I’ve seen that the lads are focused, they haven’t celebrated too much and their focus is on going as far as possible.

“At this point it’s difficult to choose an opponent, they all present difficulties and you can’t get anything wrong, not one single game. I hope we can take full advantage of our potential.

“I’m very happy with what the lads are doing and what Max is doing with his staff. I’m confident, I repeat that I didn’t see a big party after Barcelona.

“They know they can win this trophy, they’re focused and they’ll do everything to get to Cardiff and win.

“They key moment of the season? The tactical change [to 4-2-3-1], Max did brilliantly. We weren’t in a great period even if we were still winning.

“We wanted something more, and using this formation that we’re using now was a genius move and I hope we can continue in this way.”
