Damiani: “Juventus, the season is still open. Thiago Motta is a great coach”

Interviewed by colleagues from Radio Bianconera, Oscar Damiani spoke about the moment that Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus is going through at this end of the season: “The season is still open. In the event of a triumph in the Italian Cup, the judgment would be less negative, without prejudice to the enormous gap from Inter. Juve they alternated good performances with difficult moments. However, I don’t think they are a great team, they were when they had excellent players, now they have few.

There are good players, but without champions you don’t win. With respect to Allegri, I would first like to say that he is my friend. Then I consider him a great coach, he doesn’t play, the players go on the pitch. He needs elements capable of making a difference while still being functional. I don’t know if Max stays or not. In general, the story goes that comebacks are usually difficult.

In the past Allegri has won a lot, but it hasn’t been repeated. From the outside it’s difficult to judge, he certainly isn’t what he once was, even if he remains a great coach. Thiago Motta? First of all, I like him as a man, then I consider him to be a great coach. Be careful though, I don’t know if he will leave Bologna, let’s see. For Juve it would be ideal, but it won’t be easy to snatch him from the Emilian club.”
