"I do not know if it is really stronger than last season, but some great players have gone & we have replaced them with other some great players.
"We have to be enthusiastic and aware that we need something important to win the title. We have to work. I learned that winning games is important. We have to work on our attitude
The boys didn't win the duel with Atlético, and they know it.If you don't win the challenge, you hardly win the game.
We must be humble and restrained. "It's pointless to talk about transfers now. We've replaced players who left.
We have an important test tomorrow, so we should only think about the pitch. No distractions. The next four." I have a chance in the game."
Allegri remained cautious about who he would bet on to win the Scudetto. Hard to beat. I have a strong opponent.
AC Milan & Inter Milan have signed excellent players. Like Roma, it is a league with 4-5 players competing for the title, so we have to stay calm & improve team from every angle.
"This is our job. The club has done well to replace those who left. Now we have to focus on the pitch. It's a big game tomorrow."
New signing Philippe's Kostik could make his debut against Sassuolo tomorrow.
'He's a great crosser and has good ball control.
You can choose between Weston McKennie or Juan Cuadrado. It will benefit from the addition of Kostic."
Arthur is unavailable as Juve is trying to get him out of book. "Arthur problem is with his ankle & for this reason he did not come to us in America. Absent due to transfer rumors
“We already have 4 full-backs: Danilo, Alex Sandro, Cuadrado and Mattia De Sciglio. We are grateful to Pellegrini for what he did last season.
The fan base was very unhappy with the way the club was treating young players. “Some stay, some leave to get more playing time.
One thing is for sure, our young people are very good. I'm happy. We have to choose the right path for them."
The coach looked back at Sassuolo after last season's home defeat. "The team has done a good job this month. Sassuolo beat us at home last season, so we have to do a great job.
it's still not the best, but it's the first game at home and the stadium will be packed. We need enthusiasm from us and our fans.
