Max Allegri is pleased with the new Juventus system after a 7-0 hammering of Parma, but insists it isn’t everything.
The Bianconeri had been repeatedly wasting chances so far this season and the Coach urged them to practice basic finishing skills in training.
That appears to have paid off, as they banged in seven in Turin this afternoon, their first Serie A victory by 7-0 since 1983.
“Everything can be improved with practice. We’ve got a great selection of forwards, including wise old men and young talents, but everyone can get better by practicing movements,” Allegri told Sky Sport Italia.
“It was a good performance and after breaking the deadlock we controlled it well. Carlos Tevez scored an extraordinary goal and he needed that, as he hadn’t found the net in a while. It was remarkable both for the technique and his determination. I’m happy he’s been recalled by Argentina, as he deserves it.”
This was the first match using the new Christmas Tree formation, so has Allegri permanently scrapped Antonio Conte’s 3-5-2 system now?
“No, I wouldn’t say that. It all depends on the demands of the game, the opponent and the players available. That system won three consecutive Scudetti and we started well this season using it too.
“It is all down to the way you interpret systems, not just the line-up. Besides, I think our interpretation meant we hardly ever played with a pure three at the back this term.”
