Latest Football News – Massimiliano Allegri and Juventus Turin, it’s over. The Italian coach will no longer coach the Old Lady next season, as confirmed by the club in a statement on Friday. In office since 2014, the Italian coach won five Scudetti, four cups from Italy but never knew how to win the Champions League, a major objective of the Turin club.
This time, the story is over. Arrived in general skepticism in the summer of 2014 to compensate for the sudden departure of Antonio Conte, Massimiliano Allegri has since (almost) won everything. Five Scudetti, four Italian cups, two Italian Supercups … The Tuscan coach does not have to blush. Problem, he failed to raise the Champions League. All in spite of two finals and the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo this season. When taking stock, Andrea Agnelli, whose cut with big ears is a real obsession, has necessarily reminded him.
Who to replace Allegri?
In addition, the president of Juventus has had very little taste of how his team was eliminated by Ajax Amsterdam in the quarterfinals. A turning point in the Turin season which probably precipitated this choice. Regularly criticized for the game produced, Allegri was also in the sight of the tifosi, who for the most part thought that his cycle was over. Now the question is who will replace it. And the unknown is great.
If the natural successor bore the name Zinedine Zidane, his unlikely return to Real Madrid has necessarily changed the plans of the Old Lady. In Italy, several names are mentioned. If a return of Antonio Conte seems difficult (the latter is close to Inter Milan), the profile of Simone Inzaghi (Lazio Rome) seems to please the leaders of Turin. As for Pep Guardiola, Manchester City should not part with it. The puzzle is probably just beginning for Andrea Agnelli.
