Massimiliano Allegri on the Fiorentina game, says Pogba will start


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says midfielder Paul Pogba is fit to face Fiorentina on Thursday.

The Bianconeri kept their nine-point lead at the top of the Italian Serie A after Monday's 1-1 draw away at Roma.

And Allegri insists that the Italian Cup is as equally important this season.

"I'm yet to decide who will start tomorrow," Allegri told reporters on Wednesday.

"[Andrea] Barzagli is improving but when a player is ruled out for eight months, it's normal to assess the situation before taking a decision.

"Tomorrow is a semi-final game so it's normal to go out there with the best possible line-up.

"Fiorentina is one of the best teams at the moment, they play nice football and they are physically fit and are very good with the ball in their feet.

"Yesterday we didn't train so today I will assess the fitness level [of each and every player].

"I might as well decide to use the regular players against Fiorentina and to rotate for the next game against Sassuolo and that's because the Italian Cup is an objective for Juventus.

"It's been twenty years since Juventus lifted the Italian Cup so our job is to try and win it.

"[Paul] Pogba and [Stefano] Sturaro are fit. Pogba was in Rome but I decided not to take any risks so he will surely start [tomorrow]."
