The French midfielder says he will stay with the Bianconeri, and he hopes his boss will remain working with the club too.

French midfielder Blaise Matuidi has said he will stay with Juventus for the next Italian Lega Serie A season, and he hopes his manager Massimiliano Allegri will stay too.

“We had a good first half against Roma and needed to score,” the Frenchman was quoted by Football Italia.

“Allegri’s done a great job here and I hope he stays: he’s shown great quality and he’s a great coach.”

“We have to think about playing and having a good game on Sunday night at the Stadium against Atalanta to celebrate the Scudetto,” he added.

“We’d like to give a good impression of ourselves because we have to finish well so we can celebrate the Scudetto in front of our fans.”

“I’m happy at Juve, I feel at home and I have no problems. I’m staying 100 percent and Raiola will take care of my renewal: he knows more than anyone,” he continued.

Matuidi also spoke about the possibility to see Paul Pogba come back to the Bianconeri: “All great players are welcome here: I wish him the best and hope he makes the right decision.”

“Only he knows his situation and knows how good he really is.”
