After a close meeting, the Juventus superiors decided to terminate the contract soon with Coach Max Allegri, invite another coach to replace, perhaps Simone Inzaghi.
Information published by most of Italy’s major and prestigious newspapers on May 8, from relatively neutral news sites such as Sportmediaset to Juventus close newspapers and is very popular like Tuttosport. Accordingly, Juve bosses include President Andrea Agnelli, Pavel Nedved vice president, and sporting director Fabio Paratici, who have closed talks and have made a decision to part with Max Allegri.
The official decision is not yet available, and the Italian media predicted, it will be released within 48 hours, from the time of the announcement, ie on May 10. According to speculation, the Juve boss will not meet Allegri personally as expected before, but make a final decision. Before Juve was eliminated from the Champions League by Ajax in the quarterfinals, Allegri met with President Agnelli and was convinced that there would be another meeting to discuss the future. But now, every plan has changed.
This is also common sense. Juve wants to have a new leader than Allegri, who led the club for five seasons, won 11/15 titles in the domestic league, but could not win the Champions League, despite having made two finals. This year Juve hopes to win the contract with Cristiano Ronaldo, but Allegri will only bring the team to the quarterfinals.
This farewell is also beneficial for Allegri, who is tired of work at Juve, and has a deadlock in helping the team grow to a new level. Allegri has two options after parting with Juve: Coming to work at Chelsea (if this team sack Maurizio Sarri) or take a break for 1 year. Coming to Chelsea is in Italian media forecasts, because Allegri loves the Premier League very much. However, this is also an unconfirmed rumor.
Juve has not yet decided who replaces Allegri. At this time, the number of qualified candidates is not much. The number one candidate in their eyes is Antonio Conte, who resigned under the pressure of Juve bosses in 2014, when they wanted to appoint Allegri. But there is also news from Sky Sports that Conte has accepted to lead Inter in the next season, so Juve would like to invite Conte back in time.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, there are two candidates behind Conte for the hot seat at Juve, Simone Inzaghi (current Lazio coach) and Sinisa Mihajlovic (leading Bologna). These are two shocking plans, because Juve wants to win the Champions League but both of the candidates are … never in the Champions League in the military career. Inzaghi is winning the pole, because … is a childhood friend of Paratici Sports Director.
