Massimiliano Allegri pleased with win, coy over Carlos Tevez's future


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri hails his side's aggressive approach to the game as they beat Verona 4-0 at the Juventus Stadium.

The Bianconeri eased past the visitors in the same fashion they did in mid-week in the Italian Cup as they open a five-point gap at the top of the Italian Serie A.

"First of all we're back on winning terms here at the Juventus Stadium after a month a half," Allegri said.

"Closing the first round with a convincing win was important, especially against a Verona side we already beat in mid-week.

"The risk was to be complacent, instead the team approached the game in the best possible way, being aggressive.

"We now have a day off and then a full week to prepare yet another home game [against Chievo], as equally important as this one.

"We'll then have an important game away from home [against Udinese] so we have to face all games with the right approach.

"Many thought Juventus was going downhill after we drew the two games [against Sampdoria and Internazionale], but you don't start going downhill in a fortnight simply because you draw two games against two very good sides.

"We now have to continue working, knowing exactly what our objectives are; improving technically and as a group, both offensively and defensively and to also improve individually."

Striker Carlos Tevez was again on target for Juventus and the Italian was coy over the future of the 30-year-old.

"Tonight he scored two goals," Allegri said when asked about the future of the Argentine.

"So I believe that right now he's enjoying a good moment of form, especially this week after he worked on the mental aspect of the game."
