Massimiliano Allegri on the title race, avoids Rudi Garcia controversy


Massimiliano Allegri says the title race will not be decided when Juventus face Roma away from home on March 1.

The Bianconeri failed to keep their 3-point gap at the top of the Italian Serie A after only managing a draw at home against Internazionale but the Italian insists there's still a long way to go in the season.

"There is still a long way to go in the Championship," Allegri said.

"The March game against Roma will not be key for the title race. We have to beat Napoli [at the end of the week] and be first when the second round starts.

"For sure is that Roma will be there until the very end."

This week Roma coach Rudi Garcia says he will not forget the way his team lost away at Juventus because of referee mistakes but Allegri is not interested in controversy.

"I believe many are those who create controversy in Italy and Garcia created much of his own lately," Allegri explained.

"I believe referees are doing a very good job and at the end of the season mistakes usually go both ways.

"Also I think Roma have been more lucky in this regards lately but we shouldn't concentrate on this. Our job is to improve [on the pitch], to close games with ease so as to avoid controversy."
