Juventus confirm coach Allegri will leave club at end of season

Pochettino Allegri Juventus

Manager Massimiliano Allegri will leave Serie A champions Juventus at the end of the season.

"Massimiliano Allegri will not be on the Juventus bench for the 2019-2020 season", the club said in a statement, announcing a news conference for Saturday.

This was only the second time Juventus had won four consecutive Scudetto titles (the last time being from 1931 to 1935, when they won five Scudetto titles in a row). After five straight Serie A titles and two UEFA Champions League final appearances, Allegri could have his pick of jobs, but Marcotti explains why taking a break from management might be the best thing for him.

The quarter-final exit against Ajax this season was a huge disappointment after signing Cristiano Ronaldo last summer for a fee reported to be 100million euros. However, the speed with which they replaced Antonio Conte with Allegri would suggest that the club have a plan for the future.

After meetings with Juve chief Andrea Agnelli, the club and the coach have chose to part ways this summer, despite Allegri having a year to run on his contract.

The dream appointment of the Juve board, the fans and quite possibly Ronaldo himself is Zinedine Zidane, but the former midfielder recently rejoined Real Madrid after leaving last summer, a decision the Frenchman may now be coming to regret.

"Next season may not be so good, but I am going to be manager of Manchester City". "I am going to stay, if they want me, two more seasons here, I have a contract". I am satisfied working with this club, with the people here. "I am not going to move to Italy. Like I keep saying, I am manager of Manchester City". However, it seems Pep might simply be a pipedream for Juve: speaking on Friday, he told reporters: "How many times do I have to say?"
