Massimiliano Allegri frowns at the attitude of the players after their defeat that leave their Champions League qualification in doubt.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has questioned the attitude of his players following their defeat to Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League.

First half goals from the Israeli club against Juventus was enough to earn them three points and put pressure on them in the group.

Speaking after the game Allegri frowns and questioned the attitude of the players in the game saying: “All we can do is keep quiet right now. Our performance was not up to par, especially from a character point of view.

“We will return and stay at Continassa until the Turin derby, we owe that to the club, to the fans and to ourselves. We’re speaking about heart and soul, because everyone is playing for themselves and I don’t like it: it’s a question of wanting to suffer together and to be united”.

It’s a tough season for the Old Ladies already but the manager claims he is not thinking of resigning, but he is seeking a way to overcome the challeges.

“I’ve never thought about resigning, because the more difficult the challenge becomes, the better the feeling to overcome it. This thought must enter everyone’s heads so that we respond with courage, desire and passion”.

Meanwhile, Juventus defender Danilo says the match against Maccabi Haifa is difficult to explain but insists they need to find solution to the challenges.

“It’s difficult to explain tonight, we have no words. Our fans and the people who support us do not have any. We have to be a team and find the solution to get out of this moment.

“I find it hard to imagine that a Juventus player is nervous, it’s something I can’t understand. We hide as if we do not want to play and we launch the long ball and it’s not good.

“It’s not enough to say ‘we are Juventus’, because Juve was there before us and will always be there, we have to leave a positive impression. Our focus cannot be long-term, but it must be game after game, because nothing is taken for granted, every detail makes the difference.”
