Juventus announced the name of the new coach just hours after the sacking of Andre Pirlo. The boss of Ronaldo-Dibala is now Massimiliano Allegri. The Old Ladies of Turin announced the 53-year-old Allegri as coach on the club’s website on Friday (May 26).
Allegri returned to Juventus for a second term with this appointment. The Italian coach was in charge of the team from 2014 to 2019. Juve won five consecutive Serie A and four Italian Cup titles at the time. Twice in the Champions League final. However, the title was not won due to lack of luck.
Allegri did not take charge of any other team in the middle after leaving Juventus. After two years, he is returning to the dugout as the old team. Allegri will sign a four-year contract in the second term. The coach will pocket 7.8 million euros per year.
Juventus hired Pirlo after Mauricio Sarri was sacked in August last year. Until then, the team did not have a good season under the coaching of this former midfielder of the club, who has no coaching experience at any stage, young or senior. Porto knocked them out of the last 16 of the Champions League. Inter Milan broke the nine-year dominance of the Serie A team and won the title.
Their Champions League game next season was also in jeopardy. They lost to Bologna in the last round of the league due to a lot of luck and they took a place in the best stage of Europe from number four in Napoli.
Juventus have won only the Italian Super Cup and the Italian Cup in a season of frustration.
