Juventus coach Allegri: Salah a great signing for Fiorentina

Salah Allegri

coach Massimiliano Allegri congratulated on “great buy” ahead of the two teams’ second leg match in the semi-final.

The Egypt international has played a heroic role in the first leg game at Juventus Stadium, scoring two goals to help the Viola seal a glorious 1-2 victory away from home.

“Salah is a good player, Fiorentina have made a great acquisition,” Allegri said in the pre-game press conference.

“Fiorentina have significantly benefited from this swap deal [Salah with Cuadrado]. In the first leg we didn’t pay attention to Salah when we were playing the corner, on his counter-attack our defense was distracted. However, we had many chances to equalize, we have to exploit most of our chances.”

Fiorentina and Juventus will face each other on Tuesday night at Stadio Artemio Franchi, with the winner keeping an eye on the other tie between Napoli and Lazio to know their opponent in the domestic cup final showdown.
