Allegri say : « Ronaldo right about Juventus team spirit »
Juventus mentor Massimiliano Allegri concurred with Cristiano Ronaldo’s evaluation that the Serie A giants have incredible team spirit.
Ronaldo, 33, said not long ago that Juve felt « more of a family » than his previous club Real Madrid.
Ahead of Saturday’s derby clash against Torino, Allegri backed Ronaldo’s comments, saying the soul was critical to Juve’s prosperity.
« If Ronaldo said it, I think it’s true, » he told a news conference.
« Juventus itself, as a club, is where you can work exceptionally well, with extraordinary association. We don’t achieve great results just because we buy great players, or just because of great technical organisation.
« Incredible outcomes are achieved because the club is strong and solid.
« You can’t have good results without a great management or club, it would be troublesome for the mentor and for the players. »
Juve are considered one of the favourites for the Champions League and sit eight points clear atop Serie A.
