Massimiliano Allegri: We deserve to be in the semi-final


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri was visibly delighted after his side reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

It is the first time since 2003 that the Bianconeri advance so far in the competition.

They join Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid as they await Friday's draw.

"We deserve the semi-final," Allegri told Mediaset.

"We lost two games in the Champions League, without actually deserving to lose so we deserve to go through and to join three of Europe's greats.

"We knew we had to score and at the end of the first half we had chances to score but we failed to take advantage of these goal-scoring opportunities.

"I was angry when we gave possession away, we should have controlled the game in a different way."

Asked if those who were not happy when he was selected to replace Antonio Coach as Juventus coach will be eating humble pie at the end of season, Allegri said: "It wasn't easy to replace a coach who won so much at Juventus.

"I work hard and with respect. Results are important, after all I came here after winning the Scudetto and the Supercup with Milan.

"This is an important season, I'm happy and delighted [with how things have gone so far]."
