Allegri compares Dybala to the greatest of the great while explaining why Higuain failed at AC Milan
- Max Allegri backed the 24-year-old Argentine winger to become truly great
- He explains why he hasn't watched Ronaldo taking a penalty kick
- And, finally, the 52-year-old delivered his verdict explaining why Higuain never shone at AS Milan
“The team had a good game, but it wasn’t easy because we came into it from two challenging matches,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia after Juventus’ 3-0 win against Chievo on Monday.
“There could’ve been a bit of carelessness, but the lads showed quality and maturity. We risked conceding just once.
“It’s a nice win and now we move on. Dybala? Seeing him play as he did is a pleasure. Maybe he’ll be disappointed because he didn’t score, but he’ll become a truly great player.
“He can’t be as clear-headed if he plays deeper and gets a bit disheartened, so he must stay on this path.
“Ronaldo? I never watch penalties, although he missed one in the morning too. Khedira? He took a blow to the knee and we’ll assess him in the next few hours.
“Emre Can? He had a good game, but he must use the ball quicker. Alex Sandro? He’s playing like a real player this season.
“It’s not that he didn’t last season, but he showed what he could do in his first season. On the other side, we have Cancelo and De Sciglio with different characteristics.
“Boateng at Barcelona? I played him as a No 10 at Milan, but in practice, it was he who played as our striker.

“Higuain at Chelsea? I don’t know yet. I had him for two years and it went well but if you don’t find the right chemistry, unfortunately, you can’t give your best.”
