Max Allegri reacts to Juventus’ late capitulation against Man Utd



Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri was naturally disappointed after falling to a late defeat on home turf to Manchester United on Wednesday evening.
Cristiano Ronaldo?s magnificent volley had Juve on course for victory but it was the visitors who would land a stunning blow in a Champions League clash to cherish.
Juan Mata?s superb free-kick four minutes from time sent the visitors wild, but the best was yet to come as an Ashley Young free-kick was unwittingly bundled in at the back post by Juventus? Alex Sandro to give United a last-gasp win.
The 2-1 victory is United?s latest memorable win in Turin and leaves Juventus, who had looked set to progress as group winners, looking over their shoulder in Group H.
United boss Jose Mourinho has already detailed exactly what was special about United?s win, though his actions at full time clearly upset the Juventus players. Allegri, meanwhile, chose a more analytical approach after assessing his side’s surprise late loss.
“It’s a shame,” he said. “The team produced a good performance but were never able to put them to bed.

“There’s always a risk when you play against the top teams. We give away too many free-kicks in both wide and central areas.
“That said, we’re still top. We have two games left that we can use to ensure we win the group and go through to the last 16.”
