After qualifying from the Champions League group stage and sitting top of Serie A after 19 matches, it was a great February for our Juve: only victories.
Beginning with the crunch clash against Inter, that we won 1-0 thanks to a great goal from Juan Cuadrado, we went on to earn three points in every league match in February, following the victory over the Nerazzurri with wins against Crotone, Cagliari, Palermo and Empoli.
Even the first leg of the knockout stages of the Champions League went very well, winning 2-0 at Porto thanks to goals from Marko Pjaca and Dani Alves.
Against Napoli in our home leg of the semifinals of the Italian Cup, it ended 3-1 for us Bianconeri, so we are still fighting on all three fronts.
Our manager, Massimiliano Allegri, was recently mentioned by the English media because Arsenal aren't in a good situation and need a new boss for the next season: rumors say that Allegri is the preferred candidate to replace Arsene Wenger.
Beppe Marotta, our CEO, told reporters after the Udinese draw on Sunday: “Is Allegri 100 per cent certain to stay? I think so, right now there are no impediments to that. We’re always very close with Allegri, there’s a great relationship with him. We’re happy with him, and he with us, so the problem doesn’t even arise.”
Staying on Arsenal, Juventus is reportedly interested in Alexis Sanchez, who was left on the bench for the last Gunners' game. We are willing to spend 26m pounds for him, but if he came, one of our strikers would leave.
In our last Serie A match (the first of March) we drew 1-1 against Udinese so we lost two points, but we are still top of the league with eight points more than second-placed Roma. Our player of the month for February is Paulo Dybala.
We still have away games against the Giallorossi and Napoli, so the league is open and we must not concede anything if we want to win. We have to continue like this!
