Juventus coach Massimiliano Alighiri received a 1: 1 remix of Ajax in the first 1/4-final match of the Champions League with mixed feelings.
He explained that the Amsterdamers did not catch the tactical trap of the team and also praised Daniele Rugani, who had to play as a central defender in the absence of Giorgio Chielenini and Emre Gian who missed the match.
“I was confident that Ruggini would do well, as he is one of Italy’s best defenders, but he is extraordinary when he defends himself, but he has to improve his construction in the rear,” said the Torino coach at the press conference after the match.
“Ajax is not a coincidental 1/4-finals, their team shows good football, they use fairly tight spaces and definitely cause us problems – a very dangerous opponent, we have had a chance to score another goal and get to the victory, but not we were able to do it unfortunately. ”
“Their goal came very quickly after the break, and in fact was an early shock for us, and Ronaldo once again proved to be a player of a different class, just his moves are different from any other player.”
“Unfortunately, Ajax did not grab our tactical trap, and now everything between us and them will be decided on a retrenchment in Turin,” said the specialist.
