Allegri pure class reaction to Ajax despite elimination

Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 17/04/2019

Juventus manager Maximiliano Allegri heaped praise on Ajax despite being eliminated by the Dutch team who continue to soar high in this season Champions League.

Cristiano Ronaldo put Juventus ahead via a header from the corner kick but the Dutch team restored parity following a nice ball control from Donny van de Beek who put it past Wojciech Szczesny and as the game progresses captain Matthijs de Ligt powerful header found the back of the net to secure a semifinal berth for the Sons of Gods.

JUVE 1-2 AJAX: Ajax stun Juventus in Allianz

Allegri insisted afterwards: "Football is vicious, as you concede a fortuitous goal, the fear sets in, we got stretched out in the second half and should've had a different approach.

“Ajax fully deserved their result and qualification to the semi-finals.

“I told the president that I will stay. We'll sit down with the club and think about the future.”

Juventus crashed out on 3-2 aggregate.
