Arrigo Sacchi has seemingly blamed Max Allegri for Paulo Dybala’s poor Juventus form. “Not even Lionel Messi would’ve touched the ball against Napoli.”
Dybala’s failure to score in Juve’s 2-0 win at Olympiacos meant he had gone the entire group stage of the Champions League without a goal, but Sacchi suggested Allegri’s tactics were not getting the best out of the Argentine attacker.
“Forwards must feel motivated and supported because otherwise, they lose rhythm and confidence,” the coaching icon said after the game, reports ItaSportPress.
“Juventus could’ve played with Messi at the San Paolo against Napoli, but not even he would’ve touched the ball.
“It’s not fair because you have to give excitement to the fans. With excitement, you win and convince people. This makes the game more beautiful.”
