Tevez Goal Extraordinary – Allegri

Tevez Goal Extraordinary – Allegri

Massimiliano Allegri hailed Carlos Tevez’s “extraordinary” goal following Juventus‘ 1-0 win over Genoa.

The striker scored twice in the 3-0 Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund in the second leg of their last-16 tie on Wednesday and followed that up with another goalscoring display on Sunday.

Tevez scored the only goal of the game in the 25th minute with a fine solo effort and saw a second half penalty saved, but Allegri was quick to praise his efforts after the game.

“He scored an extraordinary goal, suited to his remarkable season,” the coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“He has great technique, I leave him free to move around a bit more and I think that’s important for him.

“You can tell a champion by the way he moves and shakes off the marking, even without having to run that much.

The result leaves Juve 17 points clear at the top of Serie A, while they remain in the running for both the Coppa Italia and the Champions League, and Allegri admitted success on all three fronts is not an impossibility.

“The lads and club deserve the credit for what they are doing this season.

“It’s an intriguing end to the campaign and we hope to achieve as many objectives as possible. You never know in football.

“If we are able to get full points in the next two games, then we’d have a pretty strong lead. However, as things stand we haven’t won anything yet and still have to play in the Champions League and Coppa Italia.”
