Max Allegri has revealed Andrea Pirlo will be available for Juventus’ Champions League clash with Monaco.
The Bianconeri meet the Ligue 1 side in the first leg of their Champions League Quarter Final at Juventus Stadium on Tuesday, and after a lengthy absence the bearded playmaker will be back.
“Carlos Tevez is fine, Tevez is available,” Allegri told journalists in his Press conference ahead of tomorrow’s Parma game. Pirlo will not be available for tomorrow, because he has work to do today, but he will be available for Tuesday, so that is an important return that we have for Tuesday. Stephan Lichtsteiner will be assessed today as he has a knock to the thigh. Barzagli will not be available, he has to rest because he had a calf strain.
“Barzagli is a player who was out for eight months, playing five high-intensity games in a row it’s normal to be out after making sacrifices from game to game. The important thing is to be good at managing these situations, stop immediately to prevent serious injury. Tomorrow we’ll evaluate whether Barzagli will be available for Tuesday or not.”
The tactician also adressed talk of a treble, insisting that his side have enjoyed an extraordinary campaign, regardless of what happens in the Champions League.
“Right now we have to maintain our balance, because it’s very easy to stumble at this stage. We have to do a lot of work on the details, on concentration. I think the lads are having a great season, we have the opportunity to make it exceptional, but that’s not easy.
“What would make me angry is if all we’re doing were to be considered normal. Firstly, the achievement of a fourth consecutive Scudetto, if we win it, would be an extraordinary thing for the lads. We’ve reached the Coppa Italia final and that was another goal.
