Allegri: ‘Avoid Barcelona’

Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri admits “the only team that I don’t want is Barcelona” in the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Bianconeri beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 at Wembley Stadium last night, securing their place in the last eight.

The draw will be made a week tomorrow, but there’s only one side left in the competition the Juve boss doesn’t want to face.

“The only team that I don’t want is Barcelona,” Allegri told Viasport’s Jan Aage Fjortoft.

“Because every year [it’s] Barcelona, Barcelona, Barcelona… now stop!”

Former Middlesbrough, Swindon Town and Sheffield United player Fjortoft also noted that Allegri’s English has improved, is he preparing a switch to the Premier League?

“No, because I have a contract until 2020.”
