Juventus and Massimiliano Allegri part ways after a good five years. Inability to land the Champions League might have been the cause for this decision.
Juventus have confirmed that their current manager Massimiliano Allegri will leave the club at the end of the season. While the reasons for Allegri leaving not known, one must assume that his failure to land the Champions League might have cost him the job.
The 51 year old reached two finals with the Italian side but lost both. Despite this, he had a seller time at Turin bagging 5 Serie A titles, 4 Coppa Italia trophies and 2 SuperCoppa Italiana titles.
Singing of Ronaldo last summer made everyone think that Juventus have found the key to win the Champions League. But the side had to exit the tournament after losing to Ajax in the quarterfinals. The statement released on the club website regarding Allegri’s departure read:
“Massimiliano Allegri will not sit on the Juventus bench in the 2019-2020 season.
“The coach and the president, Andrea Agnelli, will meet the media together at a press conference, which will be held tomorrow, Saturday 18 May, at 2pm (CET) in the conference hall of the Allianz Stadium.”
Allegri’s next move is not known but with the managers of Bayern, Chelsea and Barcelona having an unsecure future, Allegri’s exit might pose a threat to their jobs.
Meanwhile Antonio Conte, who has already led Juventus before is being rumoured to replace Allegri for the next season.
