Allegri: 'I haven't asked for buys'

Massimiliano Allegri insists he “hasn’t asked for anything” from Juventus in terms of January signings.

The Bianconeri Coach was seen shouting at directors Fabio Paratici and Giuseppe Marotta after the Supercoppa Italiana defeat to Milan, leading to rumours he was unhappy with the squad.

Following the signing of Tomas Rincon, Marotta insisted he was happy with the squad and it appears the Coach concurs.

“No, I absolutely haven’t asked for anything,” Allegri said in his pre-Atalanta Press conference.

“I don’t expect anything because, I repeat, at Juventus you have to take players who will improve the squad.

“If there’s a chance then the club - as they have done in recent years - will take it, otherwise it’s better to stay with the very good players we have.

“It’s useless to have a lot of players you don’t need, especially if they won’t improve the quality of the squad.

“I’d rather bring in the Primavera lads who are good and get them working with the first team, then maybe they’ll get their chance in the course of the season.”
