Allegri Says Pogba Lost His Concentration Despite Juventus Win
Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri criticised Paul Pogba for a lack of focus despite seeing his side restore their three-point lead at the top of Serie A with a 2-0 win at Atlanta.
Allegri was not satisfied with his men’s performance and had words for Pogba.
Allegri told Sky Sport Italia: “Paul Pogba is a player who can make the difference if he plays it simple and is focused.
“He got booked and let that affect him, so he lost his way in the second half and basically stopped playing.
“It’s one less game, one less win we need to achieve. It was a good first half, we made some mistakes in our passing choices after the break and in the last half-hour should’ve done better.
“The approach to the game was good, we could’ve scored more than one early on and moved the ball around well.
“Once we stopped playing, they started whipping in crosses and we naturally suffered a bit.”
