Allegri snubbed for Coach of the Year

Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri has not been nominated for FIFA’s Coach of the Year award.

The Bianconeri won the Scudetto and the Coppa Italia last season, as well as reaching the Champions League final.

However, a poor start to this season appears to have undermined Allegri’s standing for the award, which is based on a calendar year, as he has not received a nomination.

‘Barça important, but not decisive’

Roma Coach Rudi Garcia insists tomorrow’s Champions League clash with Barcelona is “important, but not decisive”.

The Giallorossi are just one point ahead of Bayer Leverkusen in second place in the group, and will know how the Germans fared against BATE Borisov by the time they take the field at Camp Nou.

“Let’s see if Daniele [De Rossi] is fit, he had a perfect game in the first leg,” Garcia said in his pre-match Press conference, when asked how he intends to counter Barça’s pressing game.

Neymar: ‘Buffon one of the best’

Barcelona forward Neymar says Juventus ‘keeper Gigi Buffon is ‘one of the best ever’ and used to play as him on the Playstation.

The Brazilian will come face-to-face with the shot-stopper in tomorrow’s Champions League final, and told reporters he would like to score past the veteran.

“Buffon is one of the best ever,” Neymar opined in the pre-match Press conference.

Allegri: ‘Not about stopping MSN’

Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri says he’s more concentrated on his team scoring than stopping Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

The Bianconeri will meet Barcelona and their much-vaunted ‘MSN’ front-three in the Champions League final tomorrow, but the tactician is focused on his own side.

“Messi-Neymar-Suarez, the talk is always ‘how do you stop them, how do you stop them’,” Allegri said in the pre-match Press conference.

“I think, in the end, neither of us are playing at home,” Buffon reminded journalists in the pre-match Press conference.

Chiellini: ‘Not just MSN’

Giorgio Chiellini warns Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar are not the only danger for Juventus in the Champions League final.

The Blaugrana’s ‘MSN’ front-three are widely considered to be the most deadly attack in world football, but the defender - who will miss the game through injury - warns the focus can’t be entirely on that trio.

“Ultimately, Messi, Neymar and Suarez are not the only ones in the team,” Chiellini explained, speaking to UEFA’s official website.
