De Sciglio: ‘Happy to work with Allegri’

Juventus full-back Mattia De Sciglio confirms “it was important to reunite” with Coach Massimiliano Allegri.

The Italian international joined the Bianconeri from Milan this summer, where he will once again play under the tactician who gave him his debut.

“It’s important for me to have reunited with Allegri,” De Sciglio confirmed, speaking to JTV.

“He showed great confidence in me at Milan, despite the fact I was very young he allowed me to work calmly.

“Why Juve? Because this is a top team in Italy and in Europe, a team where I’ll have to give my all in training in order to win a place.”

The Bianconeri face Chievo in Turin on Saturday, and the defender warns it won’t be an easy game.

“Saturday’s match won’t be simple, Chievo are very organised. It’ll take the right mentality to bring home the three points, and only after that will we think about Barcelona.”
