Massimiliano Allegri: The 4-3-3 formation could be an option


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says there will be changes for tomorrow's Italian Cup game against Parma.

The Bianconeri opened an important seven-point gap at the top of the Italian Serie A and can shift their focus to a competition they last won more twenty years ago.

"Our objective is to reach the semi-finals," Allegri said.

"I think the last time Juventus won the Italian Cup was 20 years ago so for us this should be a primary objective, just like the championship and the Champions League.

"[The 4-3-3 formation] could be an option but I will decide after today's training session. It depends on how fit the players are.

"I have a full squad to choose from, I think only [Carlos] Tevez is not available. Andrea [Pirlo] trained and is fit so he is available as well.

"[Goalkeeper Marco] Storari will be in goal tomorrow.

"As for rotation, I don't like to talk about it, let's just say that tomorrow we will start with the best possible line-up. And those who will be on the bench will be important for us.

"Just like Sunday, the three players who came on from the bench did well. This is very important because if those on the bench fail when called into action, it will affect their team-mates."

Meanwhile, Allegri again insists that the future of midfielder Paul Pogba is at Juventus.

"[Paul] Pogba is a player I always want in my team, like all other top players," the 47-year-old said.

"He played many games [this season], he's still very young so I will see tomorrow if he's ready to feature [against Parma]."
