Allegri: 'Hernanes great game'

Max Allegri was “satisfied” with Juventus as they beat Sevilla in the Champions League, singling out Hernanes for praise.

The 2-0 result was sealed by Alvaro Morata and Simone Zaza to put them top of the group on six points, followed by Sevilla and Manchester City on three.

“The lads put in a good performance, tacticallly, technically and defensively. We had a very young attack with little international experience,” Allegri told JTV.

“Hernanes had a good game after all the criticism of his performance at Napoli, which was too bad to be real. I am satisfied.

“Sevilla are a very solid team and dangerous in attack, but when the lads are open to working hard and sacrificing themselves for the team, we can do well.

“Against Napoli we got it wrong technically, making many errors to allow lots of counter-attacks. Even then, towards the end we were still in the running for an equaliser.

“If you keep the ball it is easier to play, attack and defend. We still have to improve this aspect, but it is getting better.”
