Massimiliano Allegri to leave Juventus at the end of the season


Juventus announced through a statement on their website on Friday that their current manager, Massimiliano Allegri, will leave the club at the end of the season.


The Italian has managed to win the Serie A in every season that he has been in charge of Juventus, yet several underwhelming performances in the UEFA Champions League were enough for him to leave the club.


Last week Allegri said in a press conference that he was "amused" at the rumours suggesting that he would leave Juventus, having been their manager since 2014, winning five straight Serie A titles, four Coppa Italia titles, as well as two Italian Super Cups.

However, this season seemed to be the last straw for the Juventus board, as through the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo for €100 million, the board was expecting the side the win the Champions League, yet the Italians were eliminated by an exciting, young and hungry Ajax side in the quarter finals.


Juventus are now on the hunt for a new manager, with current Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino, being hot on their radar to succeed Allegri. Pochettino has managed to take Tottenham to the Champions League final without signing a single player in the last two transfer windows.


Allegri and the club president, Andrea Agnelli, will speak at a press conference on Saturday, ahead of their next match against Atalanta on Sunday.


Allegri's final match will be against Sampdoria on the 26th of May.
