Massimiliano Allegri: 'I was happy when we drew Real Madrid'
Juventus boss feels 'encouragement' ahead of the Champions League matches vs Los Blancos.
“When you play the Champions League you show yourself to the rest of the world. And at the premiere at La Scala, all the actors and performers have the same kind of situation, the same feeling, in front of all the people, all the experts. It is on the same scale.
“So when this draw came out that we were going to play Real Madrid some were disappointed, a little bit worried, but actually I was happy. It was something that is a good stimulus, a great encouragement. It brings a lot of adrenaline because it means we have to play two legs. It will be two great matches.
'“I have watched the final in Cardiff several times. It was not a problem to watch it again. It has helped me to mature and to be sure in my conviction that to improve we needed not to rush so much. To be more quiet.”
