'One doesn't win by chance' - Allegri slams criticism after Juve's eighth successive Serie A title


     The Turin club claimed their their fifth Scudetto under their current manager and he insisted the job of winning the title is harder than it seems.

     Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri said success does not come by chance after guiding the Italian giants to an eighth successive Serie A title.

     Saturday's 2-1 victory over Fiorentina extended Juve's domestic dominance with five rounds remaining – a streak dating back to 2011.

     Allegri has claimed five successive Scudetto honours since replacing Antonio Conte in 2014, however, he has been criticised for Juve's failure in Europe.

     Juve – who have finished runners-up in the Champions League twice under Allegri amid their drought which goes back to 1996 – were eliminated by Ajax in the quarter-finals this season.

     Discussing his critics, Allegri told reporters: "That's part of the game and it has to be accepted because it could also be stimulating.

     "What I say, well rather than say I think, is that first of all I grew up trying to stay close to the best. And then I never criticised somebody who achieved a result or that did important things, in business or as a manager and stuff like that.

     "Everybody has their own methods. But the objective must be achieved. And therefore you cannot criticise. You can like or dislike somebody, but you cannot criticise somebody this way.

     "One doesn't win by chance, one doesn't lead a business to make a €1 billion or €500 million if he is a moron. That's what I mean. But unfortunately, in order to think stuff like that, you mustn't be a chicken."

     Allegri continued: "Things like this are beautiful because when I arrived here, in my first year, after the first Scudetto and then the second... winning five in a row wasn't easy, it was very hard. Some here even won eight, the club and some players.

     "Today is a beautiful day, first of all because this way tomorrow [Sunday] we'll have a happy Easter. I put aside the elimination of Tuesday, which brought us disappointment and sadness. Luckily, we've had this game after three days, so important that it let us close the league."

     Meanwhile, Juve vice-president Pavel Nedved added: "Managing such a long winning streak is not difficult, but practically impossible.

      "We achieved something no one can repeat in football history. In Italy it is really hard to win the Serie A. We did it more times with great players and great managers hungry for victories as the Juventus mind impose. Compliments to the club because it is very hard to win all these trophies."

Manchester City Fan Claims Man United Can Win Premier League Ahead of City And Liverpool

Manchester City are 14 points clear of Man Utd in the Premier League table but one Blues fan believes their rivals could yet win the league ahead of them and Liverpool.
Manchester United could still win the Premier League this season, according to a Manchester City fan who claims they can cause a 'tipping point' for both City and fellow title rivals Liverpool.
United have won nine out of 10 games since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came in to replace Jose Mourinho in December, with United now just two points off fourth spot having been 11 behind when the managerial switch was made. City and Liverpool must both visit Old Trafford during their run-ins as they compete for the title and that could prove crucial in the final reckoning. And a City fan by the name of 'Andrew' told The Sports Bar on talkSPORT that he believes United's run of form has seen them become title contenders.

Seven every day habit that can make your eyesight as clear as day

make your eyesight as clear as day. Reduce Screen Time
Smartphones, laptops, and other devices are a big part of our lives today, and while they are very useful, they’re not doing anything to protect your eyesight. Staring at the screen for extended periods of time can cause computer vision syndrome, which is marked by eye strain, blurred vision, headaches, and dry eyes. Take frequent breaks during the day by way of the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes, look away at something else for 20 seconds that’s at least 20 feet away, to give your eyes a break from using your near vision. This is why you have tired eyes after a long work day. Quit Smoking
Tobacco is extremely toxic to the cells of the retina, a thin layer of tissue lining the back of the eye, and significantly increases the risk of developing macular degeneration, which may lead to blindness. Macular degeneration occurs when the central part of the retina (the macula) deteriorates. Stay Hydrated
