Allegri was asked to summarise the season. With Juve qualifying for the Champions League. But never really challenging in the Serie A title race.

“I’m satisfied with the path and the goal, but not satisfied to have not won a trophy,” he said.

“The team has done its best. Even if I always say, ‘let’s play with those who are here’, in the long run we have paid for traumatic injuries: [Federico] Chiesa, [Weston] McKennie, Danilo, Bonucci… We have players who will certainly grow, then with the club we will improve the shortcomings of this team.”
