"Ronaldo has given us a lot of time during the whole season, but in the quarterfinals of the Champions League you need every player" after a painful defeat, explained Alegre. Ronaldo scored both matches (both in Amsterdam and in Torino), but his goals were too short. "I have always said that in order to win the Champions League, we have to qualify in qualifying colors in good shape with good physical fitness" Allegri pointed out that at the Juventus camp there were many problems with the formation of the team. "We have been in some sort of emergency exit for some time. We missed four or five players this time" the reasons for the worst form were recently tried by Alegre.


Alegre remains coach of Juventus in the future
Old Allegri's coach has confirmed he will remain Juventus coach next season, regardless of the (pre) early break in the Champions League elite. "A few days ago, I met with the president (Andrea Agnelli, O.P.) and told him that I would stay in Juventus. We will sit down with the leading men and think about the future" refused to move to other European clubs. Later in a conversation with the press, Agnelli confirmed that Alegre will continue to work on the Old Lady's bench.
