‘Mentality change thanks to Allegri’

Juventus’ ‘change in mentality’ is ‘down to incredible Massimiliano Allegri’, according to Patrice Evra.

The experienced full-back praised the tactician after he led them to a fifth successive Serie A title.

The former Milan boss has had a huge impact on the team psychologically as well as tactically, according to the Frenchman.

“Allegri is a Coach who is easy to understand, he doesn’t like working with fools,” Evra said to Gazzetta dello Sport.

“He makes you see the road, I really understood who I was dealing with when we played the second leg against Borussia Dortmund.

“He made us watch a series a movements and all the things he showed us I saw again on the pitch. For me it was incredible, it had never happened to me before with a Coach.

“So much of the change in mentality is down to him. Allegri is very smart and intelligent, he didn’t throw away the work of his predecessor, but kept the base and made the team grow. Juve have improved a lot in possession under him.”
