Allegri: Winless Juve have time to improve after Empoli defeat

Massimiliano Allegri insisted Juventus will improve after a 1-0 home defeat to Empoli on Saturday left them winless in Serie A after two matches.

Leonardo Mancuso scored what proved to be the winner in Turin as Juve looked toothless up top without Cristiano Ronaldo, who edges closer to joining Manchester United.

Mancuso’s first-half effort means Juve remain winless after their opening two games – the third time they have done so in 52 Serie A campaigns – following a 2-2 draw against Udinese last weekend. It capped a night to remember for Empoli, who secured a first away Serie A win at Juve after 11 defeats and one draw. 

And despite a slow start to the 2021-22 campaign, Allegri is remaining upbeat.

“Tonight the team started well, after the goal we disunited and we put ourselves in the hands of the team,” Allegri told DAZN.

“[Against] Empoli, it was necessary to have more patience, to play as a team and not individually.

“It’s not easy, we have a point after two games, but we have all the time to improve.

“It’s a difficult moment, we need to grow. There have been too many players who have done things wrong that are not usually wrong.”
