Dunga praises Juventus coach Allegri as he eyes up utility man Romulo
Italian giants Juventus head into the new season with Massimo Allegri having come in to replace Antonio Conte. Brazil’s new head coach Dunga was team-mates with the Italian when the two were at Pescara together.
“Allegri is a great Coach, as he demonstrated at Milan,” Dunga explained to Tuttosport.
“The resignation of Conte does not surprise me, in football things change often.
“Allegri is a smart coach. I am convinced that he will blend his winning mentality with the excellent base built by Conte.
“[Former Pescara boss] Giovanni Galeone’s teachings are showing their influence. Allegri has developed along this path, the base is solid.
One new face at Juventus this summer is Romulo. The Brazilian born utility player was a member of Cesare Prandelli’s provisional Italy World Cup squad but has yet to play for the country.
“He was struggling to emerge but now he can make the leap. I still consider him a Brazilian and will follow him whilst it is possible to call him up,” revealed Dunga.
