Allen: Juventus trip serious business
Manager Martin Allen insists Notts County's trip to Italian club Juventus will be purely business and not a holiday for his players.
The Magpies will play an exhibition match with the Italian giants to open their new stadium just two days before they face Walsall in the league.
"It's not a holiday. The players have been told there's no going out and there's no alcohol," Allen told the club's official website.
"It's proper work - this isn't an 'American blue-rinse holiday' tour of Italy, where you go around looking at all the sites and taking photographs.
"It's get in, do the job, get home and ready for Saturday, that's what it's about."
