Inter Milan midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has little intention of responding to some recent mind games by Juventus coach Max Allegri.

The 34-year-old spoke to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, via FCInterNews.

Juventus coach Allegri recently made his views known on the Serie A title race between his team and Inter.

The Bianconeri boss described the dynamic between the two teams as a game of “cops and robbers.”

Allegri stressed how, in his view, it’s natural that with one team leading, the other will be in the position of “pursuing” or “chasing” as their rivals.

The Juventus coach is well-known for his coy personality, and is not above a bit of mind games.

And there seemed to be an element of that in his remarks.

Allegri framed the title race in a way that did not hide the fact that his team are trying to hunt down the Nerazzurri. But he made it out to be almost like a children’s game.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan Not Responding To Max Allegri Jibes

Asked how he reacted to Allegri’s jibes, Mkhitaryan responded “In what sense?”

“I don’t comment on these things,” he said. “I’m focused on our match.”

The Inter midfielder made clear that “I don’t care what other people say. I don’t read anything about these things.”

“The important thing is that we have to know where we want to go,” Mkhitaryan said.

“That is, as high as possible. We want to keep winning, because in the end winning trophies is what matters.”

And, asked of his secret to never running out of energy or feeling tired, Mkhitaryan said with a smile, “Maybe I do but I just don’t show it.”

“My strength is my teammates,” the Armenian continued. “Who help me do all that I’m doing.”

“Obviously there’s also some credit to me,” he continued. “I take better care of my body compared to when I was young.”

Mkhitaryan said that “I’m doing everything I can to play for more years, since I just extended my contract.”

“We want to give our best so that we can achieve our goals.”
