Dusan Vlahovic has praised his teammates and Max Allegri after scoring a wonderful goal in his Juventus debut.

The €70m man recently arrived at La Vecchia Signora from fierce rivals Fiorentina and hit the ground running on Sunday evening, dinking the ball over Hellas Verona's Lorenzo Montipo to give Juve the lead just 13 minutes into his debut.

Speaking to DAZN after the eventual 2-0 win over Hellas, Vlahovic took the time to thanks his teammates and reveal the advice Allegri gave him prior to the game:

“I must thank my teammates and the coach for helping me so much over the last few days. I too am trying to understand as quickly as possible how things work here. I am giving it my all.

“The most important thing for a striker is to score goals, but I want to improve in my general play, shaking off defenders, helping the team as much as possible.

“The coach told me to stay calm, not feel anxious, and that it would all go well.”

Allegri himself also discussed Vlahovic's debut after the game and took the time to discuss the improvements the forward can make to his game:

“Vlahovic had a couple of poor initial first touches at the start, which he needs to improve so it’ll be cleaner in his movement.

"He loves being in the battle, but he’s only 22, he doesn’t have that much experience.

“He needs to improve the way he shakes off defenders, including on his right foot.”
