Montero believes in Juve’s strength and crowns Fagioli

Juventus closed their championship with a good 2-0 victory against Monza. The Bianconeri secured the match in the first half thanks to goals from Chiesa and Alex Sandro. Paolo Montero, therefore, ends his experience as Juventus coach with a victory and a draw. Yesterday was a day full of emotions for Alex Sandro who crossed the finish line of 327 matches in black and white, equaling Pavel Nedved and becoming on equal merit, with the Czech, the foreign player with the most appearances for the Juventus shirt .

Montero praises the group and talks about the winning mentality.
Paolo Montero praised the Juventus players during the post-match press conference: “I’m bringing a great group. I have been lucky enough to meet great men who want to work and improve themselves. I can’t give too many opinions, because I spent three days with them. I can say it’s a strong team. Juventus has achieved these objectives and not every year they can win. This team is attached to the shirt and this made me happy and I will carry these guys in my heart”. The Uruguayan coach, again during the post-match, spoke about how difficult it is to have a winning mentality and how inherent it is in the character of every single player: “The mentality comes from within, you are born a winner, you don’t educate that. When you get up in life, if you seek victory you have done everything to do it. The mentality cannot be a system, it comes from within, you don’t become it, but you are born into it.”

Montero sees an important future for Fagioli.
Niccolò Fagioli has found a starting shirt that was missing since October 1st in the match between Atalanta and Juventus. The Juventus midfielder also came close to scoring by hitting the crossbar, but above all he delighted his fans with his excellent technique and touch of the ball. In the press conference, Paolo Montero spoke about Fagioli’s future in black and white: “Fagioli has returned very well and is a player who always knows how to position himself on the pitch and give a hand to the team. Luckily he was called up by Spalletti. He can become a pillar of Juventus because he has the personality to do so“. Now the great opportunity will come for the Juventus number 21 to be able to compete for a place at Euro 2024. Fagioli will try to convince Spalletti and the many skeptics that he deserves the blue shirt, but in such a difficult year for the Juventus midfielder to already be in his 30s is something very important.
