Juventus boss Max Allegri is set to leave the Turin giants at the end of the campaign.
In a statement released on the Old Lady’s official website, his departure was confirmed. It read: “Massimiliano Allegri will not be on the Juventus bench for the 2019/2020 season.
“The coach and the President, Andrea Agnelli, will meet the media together at tomorrow’s press conference – Saturday 18 May, at 2pm (local time) in the press conference hall of Allianz Stadium.”
He will take charge of his final two games with the club in Serie A against Atalanta and Sampdoria
The 51-year-old has been in charge of the Italian champions since 2014. In that time, he has scooped an impressive number of trophies. The Italian has led the club to five consecutive Serie A titles, four Italian Cups and two Italian Super Cups.
There have been rumours circulating for some time that Allegri was set to depart the club despite a year remaining on his contract. Reports had previously suggested that former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was being lined up to return and take the place of Allegri.
Following his exit from Juventus, Allegri is one of the favourites to take over at Manchester United should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer leave. He can be backed at odds of 7/1 with Paddy Power to take the reins at Old Trafford.
