Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has assured everyone, his job is not under threat.
Juventus suffered a 2-1 loss against Benfica on Wednesday. This is their second loss in the group stage this campaign.
Furthermore, the club has won just two of the six Serie a fixtures this season. And they sit in 8th place in the Italian top-flight.
With the pressure mounting up on Allegri, who finished trophyless last season. The Italian manager has assured everyone his job is not under threat.
“I don’t feel my job here is in danger. It’s normal to have these moments in football,” Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri told reporters after the game.
“We need to work hard and change the situation — also, we have many important players injured,” he added.
“I don’t blame the lads for anything. We had a good 20 minutes and we could have gone 2-0. Then after their second goal the game was over. We lost our balance, we didn’t have the strength to play and they could have scored even more.
“We need a solution quickly. It is the most difficult moment in the UEFA Champions League for us. It is the first time in ten years that this [losing the first two games] has happened to us. The Champions League is complicated, but needless to say that we can still qualify.
“It is difficult to explain what happened, but after the 2-1 the match was over. The performance would have been bad even in the event of a draw. Now it does not make sense to talk, we just work hard. I told the team that these moments happen in football and you have to get out of them as a group.”
