Massimiliano Allegri’s position as Juventus head coach has “never been even slightly in doubt,” according to Bianconeri vice-chairman Pavel Nedved.

Juve have endured a poor start to the 2022-23 campaign; they already trail early Serie A pacesetters Napoli and Atalanta by seven points after eight games.

The Bianconeri also lost their opening two Group H matches in the Champions League, with Allegri describing Wednesday’s visit of Maccabi Haifa as a “must win” following a pair of 2-1 defeats against Paris Saint-Germain and Benfica.

Although, they do have momentum after Sunday’s 3-0 victory over Bologna ended a five-game winless streak across all competitions.

And Nedved insists everyone is focused on turning the club’s fortunes around.

“I don’t know why it is difficult for us in the Champions League,” he told Sky Sport Italia prior to Wednesday’s game.

“We are doing everything, the club, coach, staff and players, to get us back on track, to play Juve-style games that can get us through to the next round and recover in Serie A. That is our objective.

“The coach has never been even slightly in doubt, I want to make that clear. There was more confidence after the win, but we have also had very few training sessions, very few, so we will discover the form of the team as we go forward.”
