Juventus beat Carpi 2-0 to celebrate winning their fifth title in a row in style. Hernanes' first goal for the club and one for Simone Zaza sealed the victory on the day.

After the game manager Massimiliano Allegri spoke about his satisfaction with the result -

"This was a difficult game considering the celebrations we had earlier this week, as between parties and days of rest we could've lost focus.

"Let's not forget we have the Coppa Italia Final with Milan on May 21, so if we relax now, it'll be tricky to get back on point. We must do even better away to Verona next time.

"We want to enjoy our football, but also use these matches to improve technically, play as a team and not as individuals, whereas today I saw a few too many personal duels."

The fans announced their satisfaction with the players and the manager, unfurling a banner during the game commending Allegri for being a true leader -

"I was pleased, but I've already thanked them many times for their support. We need to keep the concentration levels up for the rest of the season. We're not done yet."

On that point, he was asked about his contract extension again -

"No announcement, we will meet over the next week. Juventus will have a competitive squad for Serie A and the Champions League. We need to make some evaluations in midfield."

Allegri was also asked about the comments Zaza made to the press expressing his unhappiness about his usage -

"He had a lot of patience and so did I," replied Allegri. "I have to make choices and being in a big club means competition for places.

"This was his first year at Juventus and he was decisive, as the goal against Napoli was fundamental, but he plays for a top club and that means always giving his best."
