Massimiliano Allegri on the Verona game and the transfer market


Coach Massimiliano Allegri says Juventus will not underestimate the Italian Cup.

The Bianconeri lead the Italian Serie A and were dealt a tricky Champions League tie with Borussia Dortmund but the Italian insists the Italian Cup is an objective ahead of tomorrow's home game against Verona.

"[The Italian Cup] is an objective and we have to give it our best shot," Allegri said during today's press conference.

"We want to reach the very end [of the competition]. The stadium will be full tomorrow so we'll be motivated.

"We want to reach the next round and those who don't feature very often will be very important to accomplish the mission."

Midfielder Paul Pogba was one of the best players on the pitch for Juventus on Sunday against Napoli and the 47-year-old was full of praise for the youngster.

"Everyone wants to sign him [Paul Pogba]," Allegri explained.

"He is quality and there's still room for improvement. He's young, strong but he can do more than he showed so far."

Meanwhile, Allegri insists Internazionale can finish in the top three after adding key players to the squad.

"Internazionale signed two important players [Lukas Podolski and [Xherdan Shaqiri] and they can make it in the top three," the Juventus boss said.

"Milan already did well in the summer, the fight for the top three is wide open, all those in the 26-31 points range are in the race for the Champions [League]."
