Following their fourth Serie A defeat of the season on Saturday, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri demanded immediate answers on the field, and before beginning this week’s training, Allegri brought in a team psychologist to speak with players in an attempt to help them recover from their poor start to the season.
Juventus has enlisted the help of a psychologist to try to salvage a season that appears to be finished.
Verona defeated the Old Lady 2-1, with Weston McKennie netting a consolation goal in the 80th minute. Despite their opponents’ great performance, Juventus’ players shown that they are not up to the expectations and pressures of being on the books of the Italian giants.
Professor Giuseppe Vercelli sat on the bench on the eve of Juventus’ Champions League victory against Chelsea last month, and his presence is welcomed by Allegri, who is prone to superstition.
Allegri and Vercelli are good friends, with the professor attending the manager’s book launch a few years ago. Vercelli will remain with the squad at the J Hotel until Saturday, when the team hosts Fiorentina.
