Juventus coach Allegri: It's obvious we're growing as Champions League team

The footballing world is giving Tottenham as much chance of winning the Champions League as seeing a sumo wrestler compete in ice dance at the Olympics. Kane has 36 goals in all competitions, while Chiellini has made 25 appearances for Juventus this term as a mainstay of their defence.

"He achieved probably everything he wanted to at that club".

Alderweireld is yet to pen fresh terms on his deal which expires in 2019, with a one-year extension set to kick in after that which would see him contracted to 2020.

Despite frittering away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at home against Tottenham Hotspur in a UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri believes the Italian football champions will approach the return leg in London like a final.

Kane, who first witnessed the defending genius of Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini in one of 2015's global friendly, was full of praise towards the Juventus defender. "On my first start for England, in the first five minutes he made a challenge and I had a dead leg for about five minutes", Kane said.

"It was a good welcome to worldwide football!" This is a good team and although it is unlikely they will win the Premier League this season, they are definitely good enough to make a deep run in the competition.

Pochettino has been attracting interest from across Europe for his exploits with Tottenham, with Real Madrid reported to be the most keen on getting him as their next manager if they do sack Zinedine Zidane.


"The door is open for me to help him - and the club - because we love him and (wife) Rachel and (son) George and all his family". You've missed reality. Juve is playing to win the Champions League, but we're not the favourites. There are the sorts of games we want to be involved in.

A year ago we feared that Ryan Mason's life might be in danger, so in some respects the news that he has "merely" lost his career is a mercy.

"We've got another big game on Tuesday and we need to get ready for that".

"We have to come here with belief".

"Tottenham have a young team and we're building a nice project, but I think it's impossible to compare the history of Juventus with Tottenham".

"It'll be tough tomorrow night then hopefully we can take them to Wembley and get the job done". Juventus, supposedly the masters of game-management, were left to rue letting the visitors play their game in an atmosphere where many would have crumbled.
